Who was Bob Ross?

In the 1980s, self-taught artist and retired Air Force sergeant Bob Ross started an instructional painting show on PBS. The show, The Joy of Painting, was merely intended to promote his line of art supplies and painting kits, but it became a surprise hit with viewers, who enjoyed his easy-to-follow instructions as much as his happy-go-lucky demeanor.
While painting lovely landscapes, Ross would add “happy little trees” and speak calmly and contentedly, providing words of encouragement such as: “We don’t make mistakes; we just have happy accidents.”
Although he died in 1995, Ross’ legacy lives on in the hearts of his fans and in popular culture. The Joy of Painting runs on Netflix, and Ross remains beloved for his iconic look, soothing voice, and most of all, his positive message of finding beauty and joy all around us.

Exciting news: Compression socks have come to The Sock Drawer! Maybe you’ve heard about this popular wellness trend and the ways compression socks can help sore, tired or swollen feet. Our socks — from top-quality brand Sockwell — do all that, and they look great at the same time. Read on to learn why we picked out these amazing products to join our ranks!
Benefits of Compression Socks
Put simply, compression socks apply pressure to your feet and legs to improve blood flow. They have been around for decades, usually recommended by medical pros for folks who were prone to circulation issues, but in recent years they have surged hugely in popularity as all kinds of people have realized their benefits.
They are a great choice for:
Prolonged periods of sitting or standing.
Other circumstances that might lead to your feet being sore, swollen or excessively tired.
For instance, compression socks are extremely popular for nurses who spend long shifts on their feet, runners and other athletes who want some extra support, and people who fly frequently.
How do they work?
Compression socks apply firm but comfortable pressure in graduated panels to different areas of your lower legs and feet. This prevents blood from pooling in the feet, which can cause swelling, soreness and fatigue. Pretty simple, huh?
Many people who try out compression socks tend to be surprised how such a simple concept can make such a huge difference in their comfort. A little bit of moderate pressure can be enough to really boost your quality of life.

Have you heard of seamless toe socks? We’ve been getting some questions from our beloved customers lately about these special socks, so we thought we ought to dive deep into what they are and why they are a great choice for folks who prioritize comfort. The language used around these socks can get a little inconsistent and confusing, but worry not! We’re here to clear things up!
What does the term “seamless toe” mean?
“Seamless toe” socks are designed without a seam inside the end of the sock that might irritate sensitive toes. In most cases, there is still a seam at the toes, but it is a “barely there” seam that is very flat and minimal, not noticeable to most people.
If you have friends or family who knit — or if you are an awesome knitter yourself — you may know that there is a way to weave a sock with no seam at the toe at all, but that is not easy to accomplish on standard sock manufacturing equipment on a broad scale. Therefore, the sock industry standard has been to call any style that makes an effort to close those toes up minimally a “seamless toe” sock.
Why is this important? For comfort, of course! We are all about rocking fun and funky patterns here at The Sock Drawer, but we know style doesn’t matter much if your feet don’t feel comfortable in the first place. We offer a selection of seamless toe socks that look as good as they feel. Depending on what we have in season at the time, these socks may have very minimal “handlinked seams” or “smooth seams” or they may be truly seamless.
We understand that for some people, a comfortable toe is especially important. Those who have certain conditions such as arthritis and diabetes and others with extreme sensitivities to irritation often search for seamless toe socks. Athletes such as long-distance runners and those who have to wear a certain style of snug shoes also prioritize toe comfort. Imagine working a long shift on your feet with an obtrusive seam rubbing your toes. That’s not just annoying — it’s painful!
Let the fur fly! Our cat socks are taking on our dog socks in a battle of the beasts! OK, maybe “beasts” isn’t the right word. It’s more like “adorable, loveable fur babies.”
We sock fairies down at The Sock Drawer truly can’t decide who comes out on top in this one. We love all animals, and that’s especially true for the ones that live in our fairy houses and snuggle up with us.
Who could choose between these? They’re all so great! Here are some of our all-time favorite cat and dog socks, plus some of our newest feline and canine designs. These make a perfect gift idea for the cat or dog person in your life … or for yourself!
