Sock on the Water

(and other miscellaneous adventures in footwear)

The long-lost inchoate sock (last seen at Rhinebeck) surfaced and sallied forth bravely with me today in search of a suitable entry for Stephanie's contest (international freestyle category, of course, since the chances of my getting to Toronto any time this decade are on a par with the likelihood that George W. Bush will admit to ever having made a mistake). And we did get some pictures, but I really can't decide which one to use.

Rubber duckie, you're so fine...

Come sail away with me.

The town conservation chairman thinks I am a bit, um, unusual, but is willing to share some local history with the sock.

There's nothing like a well-stocked public library.

Susan the reference librarian thinks I am perhaps a trifle strange, but appreciates the sock's scholarly aspirations.

The sock works on its circus act...

...and exhibits a sense of the macabre.

Any opinions? (Not that knitters have opinions or anything.)


  • I do have a fondness for rubber duckies...

  • Hmm...rubber ducky or the skull. Of course, I like the skull because I just used one for my Sock Madness 2, Round 1, Zombie Socks...LOL (http://www.angelfire.com/planet/hayshandcrafted/index.blog?from=20080313)

  • I see a great contest opportunity here. Get everyone to have the reference librarian hold their sock!

  • I'm a fan of duckies, not surprisingly.

  • Maybe my sock mojo would return if I showed it as interesting a time as your sock is having.

  • For translation in the medium, I like the duckie and also the cannon. The look on the face of the town conservation chairman is priceless, though.

  • The Duckie!!
    For sure!

  • Wouldn't that be a "well SOCKED library"?

    Bad puns aside, this is a post of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy: personally, I like the look on the Conservation Chairman's face. And poor Yorick.

  • The entire composition of the duckie shot is so appealing. The color, the reflected bare trees, the haunting strains of "Soooock on the water" I'd go with that.

  • I concur, a well SOCKED library!

    And the duck shot, imho, is the very best of the lot. ;-D

  • Oh my it's too hard to choose. Sail away :) the skull :)

    That was too much fun for any one sock.

  • Oh, the ducky one is THE ONE, no question.

  • Has to be the ducky. That is one terrific picture.

  • ~snort~ "And I'm glad that you are mine!" Guess which is my fave?
