Baseball Fan Socks


This sock pattern from Lorraine Thompson’s Thoughtful Soles Series was inspired by the summer of 1985, the year in which Lorraine became a fan of baseball. For these socks, she used the colour of her favourite team but reversed the main and contrasting colours in the two socks to represent home and away uniforms. The words on the soles are just a taste of baseball vocabulary arranged as a cheerleader’s chant. She highlighted the first letter of each word to look like lacing on a baseball by using the embroidered duplicate stitch.
