The land of mismatched socks.

Lost Sock Memorial Day

When : Always May 9th

Lost Sock Memorial Day recognizes your drawer full of unmatched socks. Each unmatched sock represents a missing sock. We never throw away our unmatched socks. After all, it may show up someday.

On Lost Sock Memorial Day, we suggest you spend a little time (as little as possible) searching for those missing socks.  After a (very) brief search, and in good “Memorial” spirit, spend a minute reflecting upon how warm and comforting the missing socks were on your stinky toes. Then, by all means, get on with your life. Today is also a good opportunity to toss out all of your unmatched socks.

P.S. It doesn’t matter what happens, if the socks are handknit I’m not throwing them away!

    I have to laugh at this picture, because somewhere I have a picture I took of you taking this photo. LOL.

    Perhaps for the handspun socks you could ravel the toes and cuffs of two and swap the yarn to reknit the toes and cuffs and then have a pair of mismatched socks?
