Half Full Socks
There are some days you need to ask yourself ‘is your cup half full or half empty’. It can be hard to decide which. These socks help to remind us to stop for a moment, and check. To try and change pessimism to optimism, to transform sadness to peace. To remind ourselves that nothing lasts forever and that we will fill the cup again.
This pattern is a fairly simple ankle sock, easy enough to make calf length with more yarn (than stated). Choose two of your favourite colours. I love co-ordinating a semi solid and variegated.
It is top down and starts with a scalloped cuff, a simple slip stitch heel flap, and half way along the foot you start the second colour. The second sock is opposite, you start with your second colour! Is Your Cup Half Full or Half Empty?

The second sock starts with Colour 2 and change to Colour 1 half way on foot.
