Featuring the creativity of knitters inspired by Summer Solstice, the June pattern in The Sock Calendar: Socks For all Seasons.
Get ready before the long, hot days of summer with these airy, lightweight socks in tropical colors.

Knitted by Bonny in Koigu. Bonny says ... Some time ago I promised to send you a photo of the socks I was making for my Friend in Germany. They are the Summer Solstice from the Calendar. Again, these were done with Koigu handpainted yarn. I wanted to use a yarn not available in Germany, and Koigu feels lovely on the foot!

This time the colour is P500, a nice fall blend of browns, rusts and greens. The colours remind me of my walks in the woods with my Mom in Northern Germany when I was little.

The sock was photographed yesterday at Island View Beach on the Saanich Peninsula near Victoria, BC. In the distance, if you look hard, you can see a faint Mt. Baker across the U.S./Canada border.
