But, do not fear. There is something to tell: y'all have been knitting the "Barcelona Sock", inspired by one of my favourite architects, .
The intensity of his structures, the intricacy of the details, sometimes the seemingly wacky construction - all this is a wonderful basis to built a sock on, isn't it?
Look closely and you'll find the inspiration of each design element of the sock in one of the pictures. I don't believe in translating elements one-to-one, but rather take the general idea and run with it.
My own sample sock is knit with a quite utilitarian chocolate brown yarn - chosen with the recipient in mind. Looking at the explosion of colour used by all the knitters out there who made the sock might be a way better idea.
I am very happy to have had the opportunity of doing a mystery sock - maybe I'll do so again since most knitters seem to like the outcome. Thanks to every participant, I hope you enjoyed it!
