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?

  1. 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?

  2. 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?

  3. 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

  4. 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)

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
