So it seems I got my holidays confused or something. I knit a pair of halloween socks when it’s almost Christmas!
Mary Ann (knittingleftie) had an extra skein of Wollmeise sock yarn in the Thriller colorway. Since I only had one other skein, I decided to buy it from her.
I was in the mood to cast on for new things with new yarn so I immediately cast on for these Slippery Socks from Knitty. The pattern is well written and easy to follow. I also decided to use dpns instead of magic loop for these (since I was on a roll with my dpns from the last project). AND…..these are knit TOP DOWN!! I hadn’t knit top down socks in quite a while. In fact, I usually turn top-down patterns around and knit them toe-up.
Once, I’d finished these socks and put them on, I said to myself, “Now, really Rosi, are you going to wear these LOUD ASS SOCKS???”
I sold them to my coworker for the cost of the yarn. She said her daughter will love them. I hope she wears them in good health.
BTW, the winners of my Scramble contest are: Karen S. Denise D., and Jen C. Congrats, ladies, and thanks for playing!! 😀
