Candy Corn Socks

As I told you yesterday, I finished a pair of socks over the weekend. That is no small feat these days as my sock knitting has been rather, errrrr, slow this year.

There’s nothing like a looming deadline (hello Halloween!) and a few gentle reminders from a friend who happens to lurve Halloween to inspire a race to the finish line, though.

And so, I have new Halloween socks for my friend, Anne.

The yarn is Knitterly Things Vesper Sock Yarn, and the color is called, not surprisingly, Candy Corn.

Of course I had to pick up a bag of candy corn for the glamour shots. Would ya just look at those fabulous stripes? Perfectly matched and not because I did anything special but because Julia is a-freakin-mazing at dyeing striped yarn.

Normally a pair of socks this pretty would be mighty hard to give away but for a friend like Anne? It’s a piece of cake. Or maybe I should say, it’s a piece of candy corn.

    Those cute socks make me want the yarn…..maybe for next year, now. And, I have your pattern, haven’t made them yet, and don’t remember – (I’ll have to hit my pattern stash to find it) – are the heels like these? Love the heels! Love the socks. Thanks for making us drool 😉
