need a sock? or was it a granny you were after?

thanks to GreenJello I came across this link, which must surely be classifiable as the most marvellous link in the history of the internet

I found myself thinking "oh doesn't she look young to be a granny" and wishing some of them were a bit more grannyish somehow - I imagined wearing socks made by the cross looking ones and got a bit frightened. Interesting how some take so much longer than others to knit the socks too - does that mean they are less bored and lonely and manage to get out and about that bit more, or are they just crap knitters (would you risk a sock by one?)...

I'm a bit suspicious of the animated socks - I think they would be very tiring to wear (though maybe good for bedtime, might keep the old tootsies warmer with all that movement I suppose, and you could avoid looking at them by keeping the covers tightly pulled)

I'll be back tomorrow with some of my own creations, but for now "may the grannies be with you"

love it!

I agree with you; if I ordered a pair I would select one of the cross looking ones. I'm glad you liked the link.

Aw? No, the grannies look so sweet. I'd rather have them bake me cookies, than work their fingers to the bone knitting me boring socks.
