FFN: Accidentally on Purpose

January 16, 2018

One of my favorite directors is Wes Anderson, known for his stunning visuals and quirky stories, his movies offer a unique and pretty signature style. There is a thread I follow on Reddit, because it makes me ridiculously happy, called Accidental Wes Anderson, which as the name suggests are photos of everyday people, objects, or scenery that look like they should be a part of a Wes Anderson film.


So when I discovered that Nomadic Yarns had a ready to ship order of the colorway, “The Life Aquatic” I jumped on it as fast as I could. Which resulted in a pair of rather long (for me) socks getting knit, and the pair of Christmas socks for the Giant to be cast aside like yesterday’s trash. Don’t worry I am still working on his socks….slowly but surely.

(To be fair they were finished on Friday, but I lost the light and didn’t get a photo until today.)


The socks mark my first finished object for 2018 and I am so happy with them. I wore them on Saturday before a proper bath and everything. They are a quite a bit longer than I normally knit my socks, however I still have just under half the skein left (to be clear I do have small feet and the skein was generous.)

The yarn was lovely work with and I can definitely see myself purchasing more from Nomadic Yarns in the future.

Now I just need to give them a bath so I can wear them while watching their film’s namesake.

  1. Your socks are so nice, I love the stripes and the colors together.

  2. Great Colors

  3. Love the colours! Pretty.

    Beautiful socks. But the real winner here is sharing that link! I’ll start looking for more Accidental Wes Anderson in my daily life.

  5. Excellent socks!!
