Pattern Description:

My grandmother. Grandma. Everything a grandma should mean to a child. Simple, loving things .... homemade, decorated birthday cakes, lots of hugs, little cheeseburgers, summer vacations. Funny the things we remember. Grandma. Dorothy. Known to all her friends as Dotty.

When I saw that this colorway was named Dotty, I knew immediately it would become my grandma socks. I paired it with a dot pattern that gradually, subtlely, lengthens down the sock. Simple, but elegant. My grandma.
