On The 4th Day Of Magic, Ozwald Gave To Me…

If you don't already follow us on TikTok, you should! Lots of bookish fun… right… HERE!

We hope you enjoy your Kindred Spirits Socks!


Timeless tales and timeless friendships. To celebrate this classic, we created not only one pair of socks but two! Wear them as they are. Mix and match. Share them with your bestie… your “sole mate”, shall we say?

"True friends are always together in spirit”

-L. M.Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

Anne and Diana have a nostalgic and unforgettable friendship (#bosom buddies 4ever), but we also wanted to celebrate Anne and Gilbert - a classic OTP! (#swoon) These are the connections and relationships that span multiple books and all stages of life.

“‘We are going to be the best of friends,’ said Gilbert, jubilantly. ‘We were born to be good friends, Anne. You’ve thwarted destiny enough. I know we can help each other in many ways.'”

-L. M.Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

“I loved the idea of having friendship socks from Anne of Green Gables. I thought the idea of friendship and love is perfect and comforting for this time of the year. The patterns turned out adorable and I can't wait to wear them under a pair of boots!” 

- Marina

The sock pattern was designed by the talented Janine Lacour (@janinelacour). Working with Janine is always such a great experience. When we were gathering artist ideas for the Advent Calendar, we immediately thought of Janine.

 For this project, we feel that she really understood how to represent the beauty of the relationships between Anne and Gilbert, and Anne and Diana (the pinky swear!). The wildflowers and daisies feel so fitting. She was able to translate her beautiful patterns into functional art that we can wear every day! 

A Peek Behind the Scenes…


Including Anne of Green Gables and socks in this box were separate ideas in the early days, but once we started talking about pairing items and fandoms, this seemed like a perfect match (too much?).  Originally, we wanted super fluffy socks for the extra warm and cozy feeling but we soon realized the image would get lost in all the fluff. Designing items takes a lot of pivoting but this change was for the best. 

We knew we wanted to bring as much value to this box as we could so, to make things a bit more extra, we decided on two pairs of socks with two different patterns. This style of sock with Janine's artwork was exactly what we needed.  We love that the colour palettes are similar enough that you could mix and match them, or wear them as a proper pair. 

There have been some really fun and amazing unboxings online and we love them!
