Halloween Socks

A few months ago, I participated in a Love in Stitches membership swap.  I loved the yarn that I sent to my partner so much that I suggested we knit socks together.  And she was game!  So I cast on my Halloween socks in September and finished them in two weeks!  

The Yarn

When asking my partner what yarn she liked, she responded with “fall colors.”  And I immediately knew what I wanted to send her.  I’ve had a skein of yarn that I’ve been dying to cast on from EuphoriaKnits.  I bought this skein at the last East Texas Yarn Festival and, let me tell you, it exceeded my expectations in every way.

To compliment that yarn, I decided on a skein of orange Candy Skein yarn that I was given in swap.  This yarn, too, exceeded my expectations.

For a mini skein, I used some yarn that I’ve loved and loved – and used in three projects now: Cat Sandwich Fibers in Italian Ice.  This skein of yarn is still one of my favorites, ever.

The Pattern 

I used my vanilla sock pattern from Charlene Schurch for these socks.  I casted on 72 stitches on a bigger needle and decreased to 70 after the cuff.  Then, after the heel, I decreased to 68 stitches.   I think these may be my new, favorite stitch numbers!

These socks were such a joy to knit.  Both yarns from EuphoriaKnits and Candy Skein were delectably soft.  I immediately wanted to buy more!  And the colors in the EuphoriaKnits yarn were incredible!  I am so in love with these socks!

Though Halloween isn’t my favorite holiday, I’m so happy to have knit these!  And I loved them so much that I cast on another pair with the colors inverted!  So be sure to look for those on the blog soon!  I can’t recommend these yarns enough!
