Protégé are a pair of tantalizingly feminine socks. The ribbing and delicate, wrapped XO lace pattern, give these classic, top down socks a highly textural look and feel.

Take a look at the socks up close in a video slideshow here on YouTube.

After years of designing sweaters, I wanted to try my hand at fashioning smaller things – like socks. As an elementary school teacher, I have learned to appreciate a great educator when I meet one, and I was fortunate enough to be able to take wonderful classes with artists of sock and shawl design. My “school-sock-mistress” was masterful: fun and funny; challenging and clear; honest and knowledgeable; and oh, so inspiring. These socks are a tribute to the teacher and to the lessons learned.
