“The woollen socks ”, a short story in the "Lyalya's Stories" series takes the reader into the distant and unique world of childhood. One feels the aroma of Kazakh apples, the atmosphere of the multinational Asian market of Almaty, the coziness of always welcoming home and the warmth of socks knitted by a loving grandmother’s hands.
These socks are so dear to the heart, because they are not just handmade, the soul, the hard life of a hungry and cold childhood is woven into the yarn and of course the unconditional love and care. 
In the most ordinary things it is the history and the memories of what is truly precious and important.
