Clover Springs is a lovely little picnic spot near the top of Millcreek Canyon. The canyon is just a short drive from Salt Lake City and it's amazing to quickly find yourself in another world. The mill creek, for which the canyon gets its name, runs through the picnic area and pines, maples, aspen and other trees surround you with life and stillness. That's my hope for these socks, that'll you find enjoyment and peaceful rhythm through this meandering stitch pattern made up of just knit and purl stitches.
