I have always dreamed of being a beekeeper someday when I’m settled down and have laid my roots somewhere. Bees are one of the most vital parts of our ecosystem; without them we would be without food. In honor of the hard work bees do for us, I created this pattern featuring a delicate honeycomb design and a bright pop of yellow — dyed naturally using just turmeric! I hope these socks bring you as much happiness as they have brought me.
