For the final day of this year's Nova Scotia Fibre Arts Festival I've filled the line with socks!There is nothing that feels better on your feet than a pair of homemade wool socks! Here are some beauties made mostly by others, but some by me (I've given away most of the ones I've made!). On the left, these fancy colourful socks were knitted by Beth Munroe of Mrs Pugsley's Emporium Inc, a woman of many talents! The next two pairs were made by Lou Harrington, who is seldom without a pair of needles in her hands. The red ones with the tulip embroidered on the heels are the best socks I've ever worn, and sadly they are showing how much I've enjoyed them. Next to Lou's teal pair are a trio made for hubby by family members. His sister Fay did the variegated spiral socks, and his Mom made him (and everyone!) a pair of fine wool cable socks every Christmas. If you zoom in you can see where he has darned the heels and toes on one pair. (Imagine: a man who darns his own socks!!) The next 4 pairs were knitted by my Mom, the smaller ones for the boys and the red toed ones for me. When she finally had to hang up her needles, I knit her the natural coloured ones to wear in bed to keep her feet warm. The final 3 pairs on the right are also made by me, the heavy wool socks for hubby's curling shoes. And yes...there are needles sticking out of the pair on the right as they are NOT QUITE finished yet! (Second sock syndrome is real.)
I hope you have enjoyed the clothesline fibre art show this week, and have been posting your own projects!
