But Hobbits don’t wear socks!

Still busy, busy, busy moving, but I just saw this and had to share — hobbit socks (courtesy of Boing Boing). Of course, Hobbits themselves don’t wear socks, and rarely wear footwear of any kind (though Bilbo did don a pair of boots during part of his travels). Still, if they did wear socks, I’m sure any Baggins, Took, or Brandybuck would love a pair of these! Heck, I wouldn’t mind a pair myself! Very cute, and nicely made. Complimentary color scheme and design elements from Tolkien’s dust-jacket design for The Hobbit, too, as you can see here.

Actually, they match the color scheme of my blog, too. Easy on the eyes. You’re welcome! ;)

    Good luck with the move - they always turn up interesting things - I remembered when I moved from US to UK I found my old Ewoks Christmas Special Juice Mug - a rare find!!

    Cheers, Andy

  2. Quite a find indeed! I’ve got a friend who collects Star Wars memorabilia, and he’d probably be most interested in such a thing. I still have Star Wars cards, but that’s about it — and not for long.
