Sail Away /// Sock Set
Take sail with this colorway! "Sail Away" - Inspired by the lively marina at Santa Cruz on the island of Tenerife in the Canaries, this colorway features a cream-colored base that serves as a canvas for splashes of speckles that consist of dark purple leaning navy, yellow, and aqua, not to mention the striking pink. Just like the pops of color shining amidst the white sails of the boats at port, Sail Away captures the essence of nautical charm.
When we explored the marina, I was truly inspired by this scene, and particularly a hot pink bucket that a sailor was using to hold his soapy water while he washed his boat. What really got my wheels turning was seeing how perfect the colors of all these ordinary objects looked together. I think it exemplifies what I imagine to be the quaint everyday life at sea.
This is where the 20g tonal comes in! Material Girl boasts the hottest pink you'll find, beautifully complementing the pink splashes in Sail Away, adding a burst of pink to your knitting and crochet projects. Also, check out the cute boat Charm I designed to go with this colorway. Of course it was beautifully executed, and crafted by Lindsay of @simplyservinghk!
The swatches in the photos are modified from sock patterns. Hopefully this will inspire your next sock cast on! The knit speckled swatch is based off of the Hearth Socks pattern by Dana Rae Makes. The tonal swatch with the bobbles is based off of the Pop Radio Socks pattern by Summer Lee Knits, combined with the Latvian braid. Either of these patterns would be perfect for this sock set! The crochet swatches are designed by a member of my crochet team, featuring Tunisian Crochet!
