Lord of the Rings Sock pattern

There is another Lord of the Rings inspired sock pattern available before the LotR sock club kicks off.

This is the Bombadil Sock:

This design was inspired by Tom Bombadil from the Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R Tolkien. He was a great character, but was not included in the movie (probably for the sake of length!). Anyway, according to Tom’s song: “Old Tom Bombadil is a merry fellow; Bright blue his jacket is, and his boots are yellow.” Tom’s wife, Goldberry, the River’s Daughter first appears in the book dressed in green. Hence the colorway of this yarn! I love the way the colors wind around the sock like Tom’s paths; and if you look closely at small sections of the ribbing on this sock, you may see Tom’s hopping footprints as he leads the hobbits to safety.

Tom was one of my favorite characters in the book, and although he couldn't be in the movies, I couldn't leave him out of the club!

This pattern, and the yarn used to make it is available for purchase here.
