A Look on the Bright Side

It’s a tough time of year: the end of winter is near, and the beginning of spring is almost here. The promise of brighter days is so close; and the nice days we do get can feel like a tease. But looking toward the sunny side is an opportunity. It’s an opportunity for growth, for coming together, and for taking full advantage of the pleasant times we do have. And that‘s what’s inspired our spring sock styles!

Spread the Word

Spring is on its way and we’re taking the party outside! Longer days are already here: tulips and daffodils are making their way through the solid ground, and everywhere you look, hope is breaking through.

Here in the Northwest, we have what we call “sunbreaks”. Whenever the sun breaks through the clouds, we all run outside to bask in the light and warmth for the few minutes that we have. We grab a friend and something warm to drink and talk about things that make us happy like music (All That Jazz men’s crew) and Soccer (Kick It men’s crew).

Sharing a moment in fun socks.

Plant happy in garden socks.It’s also time to get your hands dirty and get planting. We love visiting farmers’ markets in early spring–they seem to explode in both plants and people this time of year. They are the perfect way to supplement the things we are growing ourselves, whether it’s for the plate or the vase. Our Whack-a-mole crews and Turnip the Beet knee highs were inspired by the green thumbs we have (or are trying to grow). Our produce might not look as perfect as what’s at the market, but playing in the dirt is always fun.

Spread the Blanket

Nothing says “embrace the sun” like a picnic. We love to take our lunches outside, when possible, to eat up every drop of sunshine that we can. When the sun rolls from behind the clouds, we unroll the blanket (even if the ground is sill a little damp) and enjoy our packed meals together. It doesn’t usually include wine, but it does include cheerful socks such as Winosaurus knee highs and Kitty Cone knee highs: inspired by our dream lunch accessories.

Playing bocce ball in Femme-powerment Stretch-it and Stay Weird Stretch-itA picnic is a great excuse to bring out the lawn games, which we try to include in every Sock It to Me gathering. Is there anything classier than lawn games at a picnic? Yes. Playing them in STRETCH-IT™ Femme-Powerment and STRETCH-IT™ Stay Weird. These designs weren’t just inspired by the brightness we need to get through the last days of darkness, but by the bright flowers you should be bringing to the next picnic you’re invited to.


Spread the Love

Everyone’s invited to our picnic block party. That’s why our inspiration spreads across knee highs, men’s crews, women’s crews, STRETCH-IT’s, and kid’s socks. We even have some new men’s underwear. The spring season is all about growth and sharing: which we learned early on.

We’ve recently had a baby boom here at Sock It to Me (we’re growing up!), and it’s watching them that we learn our biggest lessons: share, be kind, and see what blossoms.

These two are sharing more than good style in Mild Sauce for toddler and Kid’s Best Friend for toddler, they’re sharing good times.

The end of winter lets us know there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. While you’re walking toward it, make sure you’re surrounding yourself with bright colors, bright friendships, and bright socks.
