Finished Socks and Socktoberfest
I'm really glad that he loves to wear handknit socks in the Fall and Winter, it's nice to knit for someone else sometimes :) I used two balls of Panda Cotton in the Blue and Gray colorway and US size 1.5 dpns (my standard sock needles).
Since I love things with fun and silly names, I'll be participating in Socktoberfest this year! I keep saying that to my husband and I think he thinks I made it up or something ;) If you haven't heard of Socktoberfest, it's a fun and casual celebration of sock knitting in the month of October. It was started by Lolly and there's even a Ravelry group for it. Basically, if you knit socks in October or wear the socks that you've knit, you're in! I cast on last night for my Socktoberfest project, a pair of socks that I'm calling my Mummy Socks:
The pattern is called Destin and it's available as a free download on Ravelry. I'm using Panda Cotton (yes, again!) in the Sahara Colorway which reminds me of mummy bandages so there you go, I always love to work in a bit of spooky knitting for October :) Oh, and thanks everyone who commented on my skull stitch marker in my last knitting post, I made one for myself just like the ones the Skeleton Crew set in my Etsy shop.
Anyone planning a project for Socktoberfest?
