Solmate Socks has a motto: Life's too short for matching socks. In fact, the children's size socks are sold in threes (a pair and a spare!). Caitrin's choir boosters sold these wonderful socks for a fund raiser in the fall. They are environmentally friendly and the company grew out of the founder's passion for knitting:
Marianne knit over one hundred pairs of socks for family and friends. She then decided to turn her hobby into a business and in the year 2000 Solmate Socks was born. Her colorful and complex patterns are knit in the USA at a family owned knitting mill, hand finished and then "mismatched with care." The company is run in a small town in central Vermont, where the Socklady is surrounded and inspired by the woods, brook, gardens and hills of the countryside.
The socks are super warm and I'm wearing mine with my green polka dot Xavier jammy pants (given to me by 365'er Margaret). I feel compelled to include some color every few days in this gray time of year.
