Apollo and Artemis are the twin children of Zeus and Leto. A well rounded guy, Apollo has been assigned many rolls including the god of light and the sun; truth and prophecy; archery; medicine and healing; music, poetry and the arts. His sister Artemis is the goddess of the forest and hills and is often portrayed as a huntress with bow and arrows. They seem apt names for these socks since they are fraternal twins who are similar but different. The simple design works for either man or woman. The patterning on both socks evokes the siblings arrows as well as the lighting bolts of their father.
Fraternal socks are the perfect choice for those among us who suffer from second sock syndrome! If you are of a more disciplined nature, feel free to make an identical pair. Either way Apollo and Artemis offer knitting simplicity, with a touch of decorative interest.
