Lisa Shroyer has revived her beloved Bandelier Socks using a fresh color palette. The stylized Southwestern motif and combination of oranges and blues in these socks reminded Lisa of a trip to New Mexico’s Bandelier National Monument. Worked in seven colors, the stranded pattern is addictive and has that radiant cumulative effect of traditional Fair Isle.
