Fluorite Socks

7.00

For years I would look longingly at my friends gorgeous hand knit sock collections. You see - I just wasn’t a sock knitter. I should rephrase that - I wasn’t a “socks” knitter. I would get through one, and that sock was destined to remain lonely with no companion in sight. Enter: Fluorite. Fading my way through these knee socks kept me so excited that I had both done in less than 3 days! I had so much fun, I knit a second boot length pair with an alternative heel! I now proudly profess myself a very happy little sock knitter!
