The title is what attracted me to click! Smiley I'm so curious now though, how did that dance get it's name? Why sock hop? Did they wear specail socks back then? I must know.... Huh

As I understand it, they would have dances in school gyms, so to save the wear and tear and prevent marks on floor, the would dance in socks.

this is how I heard it from my mom, who went to many a sock hop as a high schooler

but! the added slipperyness of a well waxed gym floor combined with socks (no nylons back then - at least not for teenagers) created opportunities for extremely wild and crazy antics while doing things like the jitterbug, and then of course they all threw their shoes in a pile in a corner by the door so everyone had to go through that looking for thier shoes, which added to the social aspect of the occassion!

also - it saved the girls' toes from the heavy foot coverings that guys tended to wear back then as 'cool' since sneakers were NOT cool back then - heavy black boots with steal toes, cowboy boots with metal tips, or wing tips that were hard soled to the max on guys; while girls were in open toe pumps, those little strap on flats, soft penny loafers, or the occasional black and white lace up - sock hops came about for many reasons, and while saving the gym floor might be the party line I think it was the girls not wanting crushed toes that made it really happen, LOL!

Princesspimp81 and I didn't decide on a theme we are just going to craft away and fill a box up for each other.  I have already started on some smalls for her and found the PERFECT extras to toss in the box.

I can be so dense sometimes. I got the e-mail notification that a new swap thread had started.. only looking at the title, I thought it was a sock swap and I was secretly admiring anyone who wanted to do that with a tiny time limit.

BUT, alas, thank god my partner has her head on straight and told me that the thread had started. Prepared to be spoiled, sewknitter!

I'm trying to decide if I want to do this one. I've only got one open swap space, but I just finished up three. AND...I'm on spring break this week and will be starting summer vacation before send outs.

Really tempting...

Geeeeeez, Deana!  Smiley  I have definitely started something for you and I fully intend on working a lot on the stuff this coming week (don't have to work or teach at all!), but I need to finish up my tree swap package first.  Smiley 

Well, and we don't even have to send for almost 2 months, so... Cheesy
