I can’t stop staring at these socks. A pair of very, very old socks made in Egypt sometime between A.D. 250 and A.D. 420.
No matter how you look at them, those are seriously oddly-shaped stockings. #ancientaliens indeed!
Make sure to check out the rest of the stocking series on Smithsonian.com linked to in the above article itself.
And to all my American and expat American readers, wishing you a happy and filling Thanksgiving! I’m thankful for each and every one of you that stops by to spend a little time on my site. Yarnaholic Confessions has been online for 14 years this week. Thanks for making it a part of your day.
