Great Psychedelic Scot!

What's this? It's orange and variegated and dark blue, and it looks like it almost glows in the dark.


Great Psychedelic Scot, it's a sock!
Imagine a bunch of hippie Scotsmen under the influence of hallucinogenic substances. Now imagine said Scotsmen trying to pick tartan colors. Maybe this is what they would have come up with.
It's bright and obnoxious and I love it. Not to mention that these socks are using up all sorts of leftover sock yarn. Bright-as-all-getout socks and stash reduction, all in one go. Gotta love it.

Speaking of stash reduction, this is one Christmas Foot, aka Fuzzy Foot, out of more leftover yarn. Yes, I'm really serious about my yarn reduction for 2009! And yes, it's sideways. Silly basic camera software... won't let me rotate images.


My excitement may have affected Morgana. Look closely. Yes, there is a cat in this box.


Both ends are open, it's the perfect cat tunnel. When they were smaller, they both used to fit in a Coke box. Now, one Coke box fits one cat. And this box is pretty darn big... it contained a whole cat bed!

Wow, that sock is quite something! I dare you to wear them school-girl style with a plaid skirt ;)

Wow, what pattern are you using for the sock? Love Emilee's idea, and love those colors. You have me wishing right now that I had more (some, any) orange in my wardrobe!

I love how the colours are coming through on the sock,I would wear these bright and cheerful thats how I like them. I am working my way through UFO x-stitch projects and making a small knitted project in between, it is hard to resist starting a new one. Cats do love box's to hide in, so funny. best wishes Julie.C

Awesome projects for stash reduction. Gotta love the bright socks! I've started a simple garter stitch blanket with my left-over sock yarn.

I gotta a giggle out of this blog post. They are awesome socks. Can't wait to see them done up.

Maybe I should consider buying a Kuddle Kup box for my kitties.

Love that you are using your stash. Scot sock is amazing! My hubby would love the color combo too! Cute kitty pic! I love when they get themselves in the strangest places!

All proper cats avoid the actual cat beds, and show their owner what they think of such things by sleeping in the cat bed box :D

Cats must be like kids - they don't care what's in it, it's the box that has all the fun!
