“You choose your friends by their character and your socks by their color.” – Gary Oldman “One can never have enough socks.” – Albus Dumbledore

We agree! Whether you’re cozying up by the fire while the snow falls outside, or pulling on a pair to start your day, socks can be beautiful, colorful and cozy. From your first pair and beyond, knitting your own socks can be a great way to use color and to play with pattern and style. A cutely edged knee sock can peak out from a boot top, brightly colored toes and heels can add a pop of color and a pompom or two can add a bit of whimsy to an otherwise functional garment. Get knitting your own pair of socks, with Jill Draper‘s Hudson Valley Socks workshop.
