Socks in the Wild

Welcome to "Socks in the Wild". This time we'll be following the adventures of a tribe of wild socks and witness their narrow escape from their natural predator.

In this image we see the female sock approaching the male. Notice her bright patterning and flirty ruffle.
Wild socks enjoy close relationships that are reinforced with tactile contact and %20 nylon.

Ah, but look. Their offspring has joined them. It looks as though the little one has been frightened by something. Notice how the parents protect their offspring. In this image we can also see the the young one's felted appearance.

Aha! This is what scared the little fellow. It's the wild sock's natural predator. A snake in the grass.

These creatures will wear a wild sock down to a thread before tearing holes into them and finally lining their nest with the remnants.

The sight of the snake in the grass sends the sock tribe into a panic. The young one appears frantic.

It doesn't look good for the wild sock tribe. But wait! What's this? It looks like the alpha male has arrived to scare off the predator. Notice his stature as he defends the tribe.

With the snake in the grass gone, the young one seeks some reassurance from mom before jaywalking through the grass once more.

The End.

    Now this is funny and imaginative. Very good, I'm impressed.

  2. Umm, Laurie, maybe you're getting a little too involved in sock knitting. Just a thought.
    Thanks for the laughs - good to see those projects I've seen you working on all grown up and living their own lives out in the wild.
