The Gavi Socks came to be when I was driving around our little town and admiring its beauty. My husband (the source of many pattern inspiration) asked me why I haven’t tried knitting socks before. It hit me that I have knit sweaters, hats, scarves, you name it. Socks just seemed so intimidating but I was itching to learn something new. I stayed up late one night with the intention to learn everything I could pertaining to the construction and design of knitted socks. Born was the Gavi Socks. Gavi comes from the Hebrew words meaning, “God is my strength.”
