So it seems I got my holidays confused or something.  I knit a pair of halloween socks when it’s almost Christmas!

Slippery Socks (3)

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!!  😀

  1. Hi there! Nothing wrong with colorful socks!
    I have been on crochet/knit hiatus, but I am still hanging around. *Yawning*
    My DH is watching “Tropical Thunder” and Tom Cruise should be banned from watching Soul Train!!!

    Take Care~

  2. I call these types of socks “Happy Socks” because bright, loud colors you can see from half a mile away make me happy. I hope she loves them!

  3. Hot damn! Those socks make me want to grab my crotch, drink some Pepsi and accidentally light my hair on fire.

    Hopefully in a few years I won’t buy a monkey….
