For SpillyJane (aka. Jane Dupuis,) growing up in a house that was not much older than she was—a house that “held no secrets”—was nearly unbearable. “The house’s saving grace was the massive oak tree that anchored it out back. I was told that it was planted long ago to mark the boundary of a long-lost farmer’s field. Throughout my childhood that oak tree always provided me with a connection to the past in a place where the past seemed nearly non-existent. These socks are my ode to my tree.”
