In researching the theme for the colorway of these socks, I fell in love with the images of Machu Picchu. Being a history buff, the images of the missing building inspired the squares that are formed with the crossed stitches. A little bit of lace is formed symbolizing the emptiness of the ruins.
Simple and fun to make, these toe-up socks will be a favorite to make
