"Inspired by a cold winter’s day when the sun hits the ice that glistens the tree’s branches. There is such beauty and inspiration in nature. I‘ve always been inspired by nature and knew I needed to find a way to incorporate these frosted branches into my socks so I could be reminded of it everytime I wore them.
The little tree motifs are created using simple knit and purl texture while the clear beads added the perfect amount of frosting. These can also be made into adorable holiday socks using classic holiday colors topped off with colorful beads! These socks were so much fun to design and I hope they bring you as much joy as they have brought to me :)" - Andrea Yetman
