Back to School Socks
Getting a Petals package from Sundara is always exciting. . . but, this fall package might be my absolute favorite!
Sundara explains in her charming note that she chose this color of poppy because her Great-grandmother would grow them each spring. The deep purple/cranberry color looks like fall--but it's also a reminder of spring blossoms.
However, I looked at the color and was reminded of the tie we wore with our Catholic school uniform during sophomore year of high school. Each year wore a different color: freshman wore black, juniors donned blue ties and seniors, of course, wore red.
My parish school went to 9th grade, so I didn't enter the high school till the deep purple/cranberry year and how I loved putting on that tie--a symbol of high school and all the traditions that I would experience.
Hmmmm. . . I wonder if I can knit a pair of knee socks with this luscious yarn and wear them with my penny loafers.
