That bustle behind the door just before it’s thrown open in welcome. A melting hug. A mug of something warm and comforting. A glass of something cold and sparkling. The spicy scent of gingerbread wafting in from the kitchen. The rustle of wrapping paper and a gasp of surprise. Holiday cheer happens in these tiny moments. It lives in hospitality, generosity, and a heartfelt wish for happiness.
The Cheering Socks are inspired by the little moments of joy that punctuate the holiday season. Recalling memories of stockings hung by the chimney with care, the surprisingly simple cable and rib panel and fun contrast cuff, heel and toe bring a storybook style to the design. These fingering-weight socks feature a 1×1 twisted rib cuff and are finished with heel flap and gusset and round toe, but are easily adapted to your own favourite finishes. With four sizes in the pattern, it’s easy to achieve a cosy fit.
