“Love, however, cannot be forbidden. The more that flame is covered up, the hotter it burns… love can always find a way.” – Edith Hamilton
Of all of the stories and myths that have been passed down through generations in every culture, there is one theme that reigns supreme: true love. One of our favorite myths at Sock Club is “Pyramus and Thisbe”, an ancient Greek myth first told in Ovid’s Metamorphoses. This story of ill-fated, star-crossed lovers is said to be the basis of “Romeo and Juliet.” The Thisbe, your February sock, is a classic pattern inspired by a classic love story, made modern by reinterpretation. We hope that when you wear these socks, you will be reminded that the oldest and longest standing truth in life is love. Happy Valentine’s Day!
Want to know the process behind designing a sock? Socks go through several iterations, approval processes, and test-knits before they are chosen to be your subscription sock. Walter, the designer who designed The Thisbe, shared some stages of his process with us.
