This is what I came up with. I will make little tassels to hang down over the sides. I think it's going to be super cute. I wish I could write the pattern but I'm not good at things like that. I know what to do, I just don't know how to explain it. Or, here's the thing, maybe I just don't have the patience it takes to explain it. That's probably more like it.
The deal with the kilt thing is this... my son-in-law's sister is getting married next month and the whole wedding theme is a Scottish thing. The groomsmen will be in kilts and there will be bagpipes (the groom plays the bagpipes) etc. I am trying to picture my 6'4", former college football player, son-in-law in a kilt. I'm not seeing it. But I guess I will see it. Kelly thought it would be fun to dress Colin the same. Hence the socks. It's going to be a surprise for the family so I hope they don't read my blog! I don't think they even know I have one. If anyone reading this has any blackwatch plaid fabric laying around anywhere, I might be able to use a little tiny piece of it. I'm going to play around with a little fabric tab under the tassel on the sock. I'm undecided about that but I'd like to see what it looked like.
I'm looking at my schedule and I don't have one appointment this weekend. No appointments. Nothing I have to do. Nowhere I have to go. I can't believe that I might be able to get some housework accomplished. And laundry done. And gardening. This can't be true. Oh well, it's early yet. Something will come up to put a wrench in it.
