Today's picture, and Product placement/socks

My Old Farmer's Almanac calendar's offering for this day is
Wear mismatched socks to bring good luck
And today Hazel Nina showed up in these socks!


They come from a terrific Vermont company called Solmate Socks whose motto is
Life's too short for matching socks

  1. A friend of mine gave me some similar socks last year. These are too cute.

    1. They are cotton, Sallie so you could wear them even in Florida!

  3. Too funny. I still think there is a secret place called the "hose-zone" in my washer.

  5. I'd not heard that particular piece of advice before, but I like it :-)
    Hazel Nina's socks are cute, they remind me of some of the ones my Mum makes (and currently has on offer in her Etsy shop, accessible from my blog's sidebar).
    Your header photo is so beautiful!

  6. I don't believe in luck - but I just clicked your link and bought two pairs of these delightful socks - one pair for me, and one pair for my husband. . :-)

  8. Oh, those are precious.
    There is a trend hereabouts with middle school students (6-8th graders), which is to wear mismatched socks. I love it - but, really love Hazel Nina's. Hmmm. . . off I go to the website. :)

    1. And Les just wrote about her granddaughter wearing them who is that age! Amazing.

  9. I was afraid these were wool, which I don't wear for ethical and itchy reasons, but the web site says they're recycled cotton. Yeah! So, I looked up the stores in my area that sell them. Not really expecting them to have them in stock, I walked the three blocks from my house to my local natural foods store - and bought myself a pair just like Hazel Nina's! I have three grandnieces (ages 2, 2, and 4) who will be getting these for upcoming birthdays or Christmas. The ones for little kids come with THREE socks - because one always gets lost! Love it!

    1. So happy you found some, and so close! That's great about the third sock. Great company!

  10. They are adorable. A friend of mine has told me you can get yarn that is colored so that it makes a pattern when you knit socks, but I haven't seen it in any of our local stores.
