Halloween Socks

It has been nearly a year since I’ve knitted a pair of socks, it isn’t because I don’t wear them or like them; I just seem to stall as soon as I reach the heel. There are several pairs of socks sitting around my house in various stages of completion, mainly at the heel or just before. I was determined to beat my sock slump and knit a pair of Halloween socks to wear on Halloween as I passed out candy. Several years ago I picked up a skein of Vesper Sock yarn in ‘Witchy Woman’ that was begging to be a basic toe up sock.

After doing short rows on my little owls I was confidant that I could pull off a short row heel that would actually fit! I began knitting them on October 14th and took them to Chicago as a simple project to knit on the plane and trains. They were finished by the 29th and are completely perfect!

We didn’t have many trick or treaters this year; being that it was the first time we were in the house for Halloween I’m not sure if that is the norm, but it was still fun wearing them around the house to get into the mood of Halloween. I also loved playing with Picnic from Flickr.




I wish my all of my Halloween photos came out, these are just the few that weren't so horrible.   I was lazy and didn't grab the tripod, but our house was decked out in creepy ghouls and goblins
