Heal Thy Soles Sock Pattern by Rachel Russ

Anyone who knits knows that not all socks are created equal. Handknit socks are, of course, the best — made with love, wool, and someone’s bare hands, they embrace your hardworking tootsies like no commercially produced sock ever will. Knitwear designer Rachel Russ took it one step further.  While undergoing chemo for breast cancer, Rachel’s feet …
