John Huston, the Tarnished Hero
These socks are inspired by decoration on military uniforms from the 40s and 50s, with a twisted stitch cable motif and alternate knit and purl textures inside the arrow shapes. They are practical but interesting and can be worn by men and women. They are a tribute to my Grandfather who was in the Royal Air Force during this period. Remaining pictures of him in his pristine uniform without a hair out of place have influenced the clean, crisp lines in this sock design.
