New Socks. Two Socks. Whose Socks?

Here's an easy game to play. Here's an easy thing to say.... New socks. Two socks. Whose socks? Sue's socks. Who sews whose socks? Sue sews Sue's socks. Who sees who sew whose new socks, sir? You see Sue sew Sue's new socks, sir. That's not easy, Mr. Fox, sir.

                                                                                                  ~Dr. Seuss:  Fox in Socks          

It's been a while since I've shared some hand knit socks with you. When I assembled the ones I've been making lately while it was too hot to do anything else, I thought of Dr. Seuss and his tongue twisty book, Fox in Socks. Here are the socks that have been flying off the needles lately. Lucky for me, my sister and my youngest granddaughter are fans of brightly colored wool socks, too, because otherwise it would be hard to find room in my own sock drawer for all the pairs I've been making.    

The next challenge will be to combine all the bits of yarn I have left over to make some ultra-colorful socks. Stay tuned.

The mulled wine is a nummy color. Can't you see them in front of a fireplace, getting warm while the wearer is reading and enjoying the evening?

Love the socks! They look to cute hanging up on that line. I sat next to a knitter on the airplane last week and thought of you! She was making a sweater for her grandchild.
