The Audra - Black
Not only are the summer months coming to a close, but this month Sock Club is also saying goodbye to a dear friend of ours, Gretchen, who will be retiring from her job as plant manager and 30+ year career in the hosiery industry. So, what better way to mark this special moment than a design that celebrates the joy and gratitude of all that has been?
We are excited to present to you the Audra sock in celebration of Gretchen and her team. They have literally touched every single sock ever sent in the subscription.
When working through designing a sock in honor of Gretchen we found this the most challenging design request yet. How do you capture a smile? How do you capture the magnitude of an unimaginable present personality? How do you draw a thousand thank yous? How do you imagine the words, “we wouldn’t be here without you”? How do you design something that celebrates every way someone inspires you? We can’t claim that this month’s design says merely a fraction of all that, but it was created to be full of life, exuberant, and fun to remind each of us of summer-y months gone by and those people in our lives that make us so much better than we were before.
Hats off to you, Gretchen! May your next chapter continue to be made of joyful surprises, bright colors, and warmth.
Stay hungry, Stay foolish. Keep sending those all caps emails no matter what! There is no right word, design, or farewell that can illustrate the appreciation we, the Sock Club family, have for you. You are a living unsung American hero. Thank you. Or as we say, Be a Gretchen!
