Ahh… the First Socks

 These gorgeous socks were created with the wool of Windrush farm (30 miles) from my home.  The farm is run by Mimi Luebberman, a wonderful fiber enthusiast who has all of her sheep’s wool processed and naturally dyed for sale at local farmer’s markets.  She also hosts and educates the local community children in an annual farm camp, with her son Arann.

Cori Coccia is the knitter who composed this incredibly warm, form fitting, and cozy pair of socks; she is a wonderful Fibershed partner who I met at a local craft evening.

Cori caught my attention upon our first meeting–wearing an impeccably knit forest green cable knit sweater. Her precision and speed on the knitting needles is truly impressive.

Cori is lives in San Francisco, and is the only knitter who commutes to our knitting circles on her motorcycle.  She is quite a vision, (definitely breaking the stereotype of the typical crafter).  Thank you Cori for your awesome work!!
