Doing the sock dance

Here is the sister who had the honour of wearing the socks that I made for her sock dance. In my post of June 28, I mislead you. It is only the unmarried older siblings who must perform the dance. How is that for being singled out! Yikes!

I think the custom was started centuries ago in an effort to show off any older sibling and give them a chance to become married.

The sister thought the socks were adorable and she was a good sport to wear them for the remainder of the evening.
Have a great day

The socks look great on her ;) I wouldn´t like to be the older sibling not married and have to dance but every country has it´s own traditions.

How fun and what a good sport. My little sister was married before me, though she was only 16! I would have worn the socks and danced!!

It looks like the socks were a big hit.

The carved duck is beautiful. Your brother did an amazing job on it. That will be a wedding gift that will be treasured forever. Just like your quilt will be treasured and enjoyed forever. Those are the best kind of wedding gifts.

What a wonderful sister. That socks look great on her. I don't see being unmarried and the older sister an issue. She's just looking for the right guy! Would rather see my daughter unmarried than married to a jerk.
