Some of you may have noticed the new "sock" page under Of Glass and Grass that was added recently.
Ah, the rod socks...
When I say that this started out of necessity and grew, it's the honest truth. But, I'm so thankful for all of you out there that have ordered my socks. Seriously, thank you!
There's something about being able to work with your hands and create.
I view making rod socks for custom builders kind of like being a framer. In order to be a good framer you have to be able to compliment the artwork without taking away from it, only enhancing it. My hope is to be able to do the same with my socks.
Today I went downstairs to the "rod and sock shop" to make a few new ones. A couple were orders and a few I made just to have some ready made on hand.
Turn on sewing machine.
Plug in iron.
Bump up the tunes.
As I stated above I've got a couple ready made socks currently available. One is a dark green with black thread and off-white accent, made for an 8 foot, 3 piece rod.
It's $25.00. Free shipping (in the continental US).
Please send me an e mail if you're interested.
