One year ago from the release date of these socks, a very good friend of mine passed away. Her name is Molly, and she remains one of the strongest and most positive influences in my life. Her ability to face huge challenges with cheerfulness and humor make my problems seem light and my complaints insignificant.

So here are Molly’s Socks. I designed them in her honor, and I urge you to share them with your best friend & to treasure your friendships.
