Easter Egg Socks
I finished some socks just in time for Easter. The yarn is Yarn Love Juliet in the color Lovely. And they are. Lovely. Won’t you sing along with me?
Never saw you look quite so pretty before.
Never saw you dressed quite so lovely, what’s more.
I could hardly wait to keep our date this lovely Easter morning,
And my heart beat fast as I came through the door for
In your Easter bonnet socks with all the frills upon it,
You’ll be the grandest lady in the Easter Parade.
I’ll be all in clover, and when they look you over
I’ll be the proudest fellow in the Easter Parade.
On the Avenue, Fifth Avenue,
The photographers will snap us
And you’ll find that you’re in the rotogravure.
Oh, I could write a sonnet about your Easter bonnet socks
And of the girl I’m taking to the Easter Parade.
For some people it’s a bonnet but for me it will always be socks. No surprise there, eh?

Do you make the foot wider than the leg, or is that appearance an artifact of the photography? If so, do you just reduce less through the gusset?
Very pretty. They look so springy!!
Socks seem so much more fashionable than bonnets these days. 🙂 Yours are great!
I love your Easter socks! And I love the song…..good for you
reminding us of days gone by. BTW, do you start your socks
from the cuff down? And how to you do that picot edge?
And they just seem to say “it’s spring!!” Gorgeous!
No surprise at all! The little edging is very springy.
Hats aren’t in right now, but socks ALWAYS are.
I got this song in my head reading your post. 🙂
Isn’t she lovely
Isn’t she wonderfull
Isn’t she precious
Less than one minute old
I never thought through love we’d be
Making one as lovely as she
But isn’t she lovely made from love
your feetsies are all ready for easter!
Very cute! Esp with the picot edge.
You’ve outdone the Easter Bunny!!
O.k., I had to look up “rotogravure”. Wikipedia says: “In the 1930s–1960s, newspapers published relatively few photographs and instead many newspapers published separate rotogravure sections in their Sunday editions. These sections were devoted to photographs and identifying captions, not news stories. Irving Berlin’s song Easter Parade specifically refers to these sections in the lines “the photographers will snap us, And you’ll find that you’re in the rotogravure.””
I’ve learned something new today! (p.s. love the socks)
I though I was the only person left that knew all the words to the Easter Parade song!! Love the socks and the picot edging really looks great on them.
Luverly socks, just the thing for an Easter parade!
No surprise at all. Lovely socks!
A coworker just gave me a chocolate bunny. Quite a big one, about seven inches high. Resist! I keep telling myself. I think it will be easier to resist if I regift it.
Woo! They look great!
They really are lovely. Well done, Carole! And well timed.
They ARE lovely socks. The picot edge is perfect.
Nope, no surprise at all. Pretty new socks!
I love those sockts – they look so spring timey! I’m more about the socks than the bonnet, too…
Love the socks – makes me want to learn to knit some. Can you suggest a book?
Very Eastery, Carole. Trust me. You don’t want me to sing. 🙂
Truly lovely socks!
I love the pastels! Happy Easter!
They look eggcellent. Perfect colours for Easter eggs and Spring flowers
Very pretty spring colors!
Awwh.. they are so perfectly Easter, too! Have a grand time wearing them in your own personal Easter parade.
Those are great! Love the colors…
Pretty socks. The yarn is perfect for Easter.
love me those socks!
nothin’ beats ’em!!
Pretty pretty! And they look so soft! You’re making me want to knit socks, which hasn’t happened in months! Danka!
Perfect! The picot edge with the fine striping is excellent. How many pairs is it so far this year? You inspire…
OH! I love the pooling at the gussets – it definitely makes me think of dyeing Easter eggs. Well done!
