Loaves and Fishes
Loaves and Fishes
"and they all ate and were satisfied."
Mark 6, 42
"a lad here has five barley loaves and two fish. But what are they among so many…."
This is one of the original half dozen design which began Holy Socks in 2000.
We’ve used a few different verses and have written many stories for it over the years.
The current version, in adult sizes, shows what Jesus had to work with (five loaves and two fish) formed into a cross on one sock and on the other, multiple loaves and fishes - what Jesus did with what he had to work with.

Here's the first story that was written for the Loaves and Fishes design.
"a lad here has five barley loaves and two fish." John 6,9
A Tale of two Friends.
“I can't, don't be stupid, he'll laugh at me.” “No he won't. He's not like the others. They'd laugh, but he won't. Go on, take them up. You’re lucky to have something to eat.”
“Well I always share with you.”
“Yes, so why don't you share with him? Take it up to him. Look at it like this, at worst, it'll be your five minutes of fame!”
“Five minutes of ridicule more like .... this is no good to him. Five wee rolls and a couple of tiddlers - I couldn't even catch a decent fish this morning.”
“Look if you’re so worried about giving it to him in front of all these folk, give it to one of his sidekicks. They’re standing around doing nothing. Nobody will notice you doing that. They'll think you're asking if you can go to the loo! That's Andrew, isn't it? You know him from fishing. Look, will you get a move on or this lot are going to starve, and you don't want that do you? I wouldn't want that on my conscience.”
“Well if you’re so worried, you give it to them.”
“I can't, its not mine to give - it's yours.”
“Oh, all right. I'll get no peace until I do.”
“And they'll get no piece until you do. Get it .... good one, eh ....."
“Andrew, Andrew. Is this any use to Jesus?”
