What is more resilient than a blade of meadow grass in spring? The softness of plants gives them the flexibility to be resilient to wind and changes. Inspired by plant life, this pattern is a gentle, breezy lace sock in three sizes, with mix and match options of foldover picot cuff, half twisted rib, and shortie or full length options.
May you wear it with joy and explode in growth, ever growing in your softness and resilience in difficult times and in good times in the ever more challenging world.
