Default Photo challenge #179 'Knock your socks off!'

Photo challenge #179 'Knock your socks off!' Time for a fun challenge. Don't get me wrong, they are all fun, but this one especially so! We've featured shoes in the past; this week we will be taking photos of socks. My friend's daughter is really into colourful socks and her fashion statement is to wear two unmatched socks. Several times when I have visited, I have been wearing my most colourful socks, which are lime green with red dots, and she wants them! Yesterday, as I was hanging up my wash on the line, I just thought they would make an interesting photo.

Photo Challenge Rules:
~ Have FUN with this! There are no right or wrong photos.
~ Take as many pics as you want, share the few you like best.
~ Please share only current photos, taken after the challenge was issued.
~ We CANNOT upload our photos to the SCS galleries. You may upload them as an attachment or host them from your blog or any online photo hosting site. Just provide the direct link to the photo in your post and also make sure that it is not from a password protected album.
~ Just a reminder that we are a family-friendly site if you are sending others off this site to view photos in an album hosted elsewhere.
~ Please jump in and join us in the photo challenges at any time!
~HAVE FUN

One more. This is my grandson's little sock. I have small hands, so that gives you an idea how small those socks are and these socks are quite a bit bigger than the ones he started out with 7 1/2 months ago.

Mine are going to be very boring - but I'll dig deep and see what I can find! I had some darling flying pig ones, but they wore out. And to think that only yesterday I nearly bought a gorgeous pair of black and white striped ones in the Guinness store.
The picture of the little sock is just sweet, Ina.

This is a bit of a tough one since I don't own colorful socks probably like the rest of you do. Let's just say my husband doesn't either... LOL!!! 99% of the time I'm in sandals (even in the winter). I own a few pair of dress socks but most of my socks are white sport socks to wear with tennis shoes. Sooooo, I decided to take a photo of the toes of the socks since they have some type color other than white! By the way, I grabbed a couple of pair of dress socks, one pair burgandy and the other beige to hopefully add just a tiny pinch of color to the picture... (Unfortunately it didn't help much with color!!) LOL!

PS... I love all those colorful socks on the line and that cute little baby sock!

White socks are great too, great for wearing with tennis or sports shoes. And when most of your socks are white, you can always find a matching pair!

Grins. I think I take matching my black socks a bit too far. They fade differently as they go through repeated washes, and I can't always get the same ones, so sad as it is, each time I buy some new ones I add few stitches in different colours of embroidery thread to each pair, so that I can match them properly. I don't bother with all DH's dark socks, mind you, just my own.

Y'all are so funny about your socks! I do like the polka dotted ones. I have TONS of different socks and will put them together for a photo session, I'm they would love to have their pictures took.

Wait til you see my other socks! Sometimes I think I have developed an obsession with socks.

Do we need to plan an intervention?

Sometimes I think so. I really do struggle when I see socks I bet I could probably go three months or longer without washing any socks, shameful.

What a wonderful collection of socks! I loved the Moody Eeyore especially .

I haven't forgotten - it's just that I don't wear socks in the summer. I will pull some out over the weekend, though, such as they are.

These are my non-summer socks and holiday ones. The last three socks in the last photo are old hiking socks. I also have a bunch of socks with those grippy things on the bottom that I wear around the house in winter. Do you think I might have some kind of sock problem?

Love all the sock photos! Just recently I was telling my friend, I could not believe I have summer socks and winter socks. I had to change out my sock drawer, put my winter ones in the bottom drawer and my summer ones in the top drawer. I don't think I had ever stopped to think that I had different socks for different seasons. I mean isn't there something wrong with that? Like we have too much? Anyway I don't think they would make a good photo. But I will look tomorrow. I sure like all your photos!

So many amazing socks Audrey! My favourite is in the second photo........the one with the Arizona scene and cactus, but so many others are outstanding too .......the Tigger ones and the blue Santa sock with face and belt. Such fun!

I like the Arizona scene too!
I'll have to make an effort and pull mine out - but since I don't wear socks from May to September it's not at the front of my mind. And right now we are having what passes as a heatwave here - pathetic by North American standards, but hot for us.

Yay, I've made it at last.
Not with socks of my own, but I spotted this display in town today when I was on the way to visit my aunt in hospital.
