One of my obsessions is cute socks. I have more pairs of socks than I know what to do with. Socks of every color & pattern, except white because that is too boring! Now I'm passing the sock-obsession to my daughter, and this week's featured shop, Pretty Socks, is a perfect way for us to indulge.
Owner Heather Kufleitner started Pretty Socks "4 years ago when my then 3 year old daughter HAD to have a pair to match every shirt she owned. With the help of my grandma, I learned the basic chain stitch and the rest is well, on Facebook! To see the smile and joy on her face as each sock was created is the reason I now have my business and love what I do!! My biggest influence and creator is my daughter as she helps pick colors, buttons and is the Chief Post Office Reminder. An interesting fact about Pretty Socks is that I am able to make these while I work my part time job."
When asked about the challenges of having your own business, Heather said, "The most challenging thing about my business is creating something new and different. Sometimes I feel like there are only so many times you can put certain colors together or make the same sock. It is all about what the customer wants."
Some of Heather's favorites are, "Making socks and cross stitching are my ways to relax when they should really stress me out. You will see a lot of purple which is my favorite color. I am not to tell you my favorite animal as that is December's Sock of the Month. To find that out, you will need to visit my page towards the end of November :)"
Aren't Pretty Socks fun? Do you have a little one that would like a pair? Heather is giving away a pair of one of a kind Halloween socks, "Fraidy Cat" size medium (fits a shoe size 10 1/2-4).
