The path we each walk in life is never easy, often crossed with obstacles, choices, joy, and tears. Yet, these socks, with an intriguing cross-over stitch and simple ribbing, enable our feet to be cozy, warm, and protected as we take the steps forward—mindfully. You’ll enjoy working these top-down socks as much as you will wearing them.
