Argyll - Argyle

'Argyll and Argyle are different spellings of essentially the same word. (It corresponds to the Scots Gaelic Oirer Ghaidheal, country of the Gael or erra Ghaidheal, coastland of the Gael; the Irish Gaelic form is Airer Goídel, country of the Gael. "Early settlers called the area Ar-gael 'the Eastern Gaels', according to Everett-Heath, 2005.
The proper noun - a place in western Scotland, formerly a county, is Argyll. The aristocratic titles, 'Duke of' and 'Earl of', which imply territorial rights, are also always spelled Argyll nowadays.
Both spellings are known amongst holders of the surname.
It is best to reserve the spelling argyle for the pattern of colours applied to textiles, notably knitted garments like socks and pullovers. This is a pattern of large diamonds, usually of two colours, sometimes more. It is named after the tartan worn by clan Campbell.
Many of the places named after Argyll, including many street names, are spelled Argyle. (This applies, for example, in Glasgow - whose citizens might have known better.) Good writers will always be careful with such details to follow the accepted usage in the area about which they are writing.

For some reason I have always hated ladies pop socks whatever shade. They work with slacks and healthier than tights I suppose but there's just something that I have an aversion to. It could be the fact that they look like glorified cut off stockings or the elastic inprint left behind which takes most of the evening to disappear, horrible things they are!

Now, you can and this is true make a "prison match" with wool socks. This is how it works, you pick off fibers of the wool, scrunch them up into a loose ball, hit it with any spark and you got fire. Wool socks can be used for all kinds of stuff.

In a tear gas attack, wet a pair of wool socks, adhoc gas mask ...

wool socks make a half decent water filter also. If you have a mud puddle in the woods and you are lost and need water, dig a hole next to the puddle, the water will filter up from the bottom of the hole (IE muddy water but filtered by dirt) you can stuff the sock with muddy water and wring out a drink or two ...

not advisable but will safe your life, that is if you are ever stuck in such a situation ..

Hasn't been much at the Cornwallis military base that isn't civilian since 1994 when it closed. There is the small "Pearson Peacekeeping Centre" which is a small non-profit organization, a conference centre and a customwer call centre. Many of the base houses and residences were sold off at a fairly low price - some are used as retirement and summer homes.

I still have a pair of grey socks that were issued to me at the Canadian Forces Recruit School in Cornwallis, Nova Scotia, in November 1974. They are 80 percent wool with 10 percent nylon for strength and 10 percent barbed wire to prepare us to face the Commie hordes when they came thundering through the Fulda Gap.

Each sock has a cute little name tag sewn in the top cuff and an even cuter darn in the toe. I keep them to remind me how wonderful it is to be a civilian, first class, who is entitled to wear the socks of her choice.

I make my meager living by coercing people into buying my pottery at art fairs and festivals. I use old socks as reusable packing material for mugs and the like. Pottery needs to be wrapped in something so it won't be broken during transport to and from shows. A whole sock covers a tall narrow piece like a goblet, and a sock cut into two pieces covers two coffee mugs. Popping a sock over a pot is quicker than wrapping it in newspaper or bubble wrap, and socks can be used over and over.

90% of my socks are black - old marching band rule that I still live by. Our uniform pants and shoes were black and with black socks your legs all blended in and the judges had a difficult time telling if you missed steps...much like the dancers mentioned above.

The rest of my socks are brown for when I wear, well, brown.

I hate white socks, nylon (slippery)socks and wool anything. In fact, my favorite time of year is April through November, when I wear no socks at all!

Can a person be defined by his/her socks?
   Unlikely I would think, but open to persuasion.

What are your favourite and less favourite socks?
   Medium weight wool with nylon to improve wear, dark navy blue ankle socks. I buy 'em about 3 pairs at a time, depending on bargains available when I'm in the mood (and place) to buy, maybe annually. I dislike cottons, 100% synthetics, and socks with toes. As I no longer dance I don't need white knee-socks any more. Old ski socks fill my boot-sock needs, doubt if I'll ever need to buy any more.

How old are your socks?
   No real idea, my buying method means I have some I imagine may be about 20 years old, but I couldn't prove it. Mostly rather less. Some of the ski-socks will be even older.

Do you save the one-sock-not-lost (if so, for how long)?
   Never have more than one odd sock. Either another vanishes (or wears out) or the missing one sneaks back, having realised the error of its ways. This may take a month or a year, I don't care, as long as there are enough socks in the drawer they can please themselves.

Do you have an alternate use for a lone sock?
   Key/coin bag when indulging in watery activities.

Do you wear wool socks, sport socks, diabetic socks, bed socks,
designer socks, knee high socks, designer socks?
   Wool yes, rest no.

Do some socks "annoy" you?
   Any kind of 'sock-based fashion statement' is well on its way to raising my ire. I view them as almost entirely a functional garment. (Almost, because I have fond memories of a spell in the 70's when some very good female legs were enhanced by thigh-high brightly coloured socks. Unfortunately not all were as good, but you can't have an omelette without breaking eggs)

Are you guilty of sock "faux pas" in public?
   I repeatedly wear unmatched (by knit) socks, but if I can hardly tell them apart when holding them by a window I doubt that any one catching a glimpse of them in situ is any the wiser. I don't wear socks with sandals.

Are you annoyed by any sock faux pas (knee high white or black socks with with snow-white sneakers?
   Annoyed, no. I merely lament the fate of a species that so lacks my exquisite good taste. (Ah, come on, everyone needs somebody to despise.)

You buy a dozen pairs of identical black socks.

After a few times through the washing machine you end up with nine socks of different styles and colours that you never bought in the first place.

You have to bin them and buy another dozen pairs of identical black socks.

How does that work?

There was a well-known bar in Pensacola called "Trader John's". Trader John (the man, not the bar) always wore mismatched socks. In fact, he had a standing offer of a $10,000 reward to anyone who ever caught him wearing socks that matched. He died a few years back with nobody ever claiming the reward. As far as I know, he was buried wearing mismatched socks.

Oh, dear me!

NEVER wear dark coloured socks or underwear. Well, if you just HAVE to, stay with the dark socks. Dark underwear (anything other than white) is a health hazard.

Don't ask and I won't tell.

Hmmmm... just had a thought... if you had dark underwear and crabs... well... you know, eh?

Heheheheee... you know who you are. Hahahahahaa... Sorry... struck me funny... >;-)
