I’ve mentioned before that I don’t like wearing socks, like, in the daytime — with shoes — and do it only under duress. But on a chilly evening, with leggings or pajama pants? Nothing seems more appealing than old-school sweat socks or L.L. Bean-style ragg wool socks. So from the minute Shannon Cook and Jane Richmond released the pics from their new joint collection, Journey, I’ve been dying to knit the Climb socks, pictured above. Perfect examples of their type.
