Socksmith has been a long time favorite sock company for me ever since my first visit to Sockshop on Haight back in October 2010!  Here is the blog post about that visit: LINK

I remained a long time fan:  LINKS

And Socksmith sent a generous donation of socks to support my sock monkey therapy back in July 2011: LINK.  So many youth benefitted from this amazing donation!

This past Christmas, my sweet friends, Parmida and Hailey gifted me with Frida Kahlo socks by Socksmith!

I began by turning the socks inside out:

And the creative mayhem began:

The result is a psychopomp with a crow friend, in an organic cotton skirt.  The material from the skirt sourced from UNDERABLES!

My psychopomp now sits with her new best friend (made for me by Emily Cowan) in that kitchen window:
