Just north of Ventura, there is a pretty little beach with a wide strip of sand and a good view of the islands. It’s called Solimar, a mashup of “sol y mar,” or “sun and sea.” I like to take my daughter there and let her play in the sand while I get some stitching done.
I’ve named these socks for that pretty beach and designed them so that the rippling lace looks like the sunlight sparkling on the ocean on a calm day. They feature an easily memorized four-row repeat that looks much more complicated than it is. These socks are great for some peaceful knitting at the beach, on a long road trip, or any time you just need a little peace and quiet.
