Who Changed My Socks

Or maybe I should ask when did my socks change. We now have socks that make a statement, or support a cause, or may change lives.  I used to be concerned that mine kept my feet warm and dry, but they are so much more now. The only time socks made a difference earlier was Donny Osmond’s purple socks.

Today socks are stripes or polka dots or both and celebrate holidays. It is also OK if they don’t match your outfit or each other.  This is a whole new world. This is true for men, women and children.

My favorite socks of all time, sadly I don’t have a  photo of them.  They have Halloween colors of purple and black and say ” Trick or treat, smell my feet.” I do wear them year round and they are pretty worn, but I am sure I will keep wearing them until I find a replacement.

As with most things I relate to quilts, I was not sure how that would be possible, other than a quilted Christmas Stocking.  Recently I found a quilt made from those socks that have had half the pair eaten by the washer or dryer. Simply cut the sock in half lengthwise and stitch it to the top of a quilt.  Amazing how clever people are.
