Yesterday, it sank in that it was the 10th of October (Today is the 11th), and that Halloween is three weeks away. I had ordered some Halloween themed sock yarn I want to get knit up, washed and blocked before Halloween, so I can wear them this Halloween.
I still have the second Heirloom Pumpkin Sock, on the needles. I am still working on the leg of this particular sock.
That being said, I decided to switch over to my Halloween sock yarn, and make sure I get them done in time.
Yesterday, I did a couple gauge swatches, to determine which size needles to use for these socks. I made swatches with my 2.5mm size 1 and 2.75mm size 2 needles.
I am using my 2.75mm size 2 needles for these socks.
As of writing this post, I am still working on the cuff, of my first sock. The yarn I am using is the Creepy Crawlers colorway, on the Sock Yarn base from KnittedWit.
I normally don’t wear my handmade socks to work, since I work stock crew, and don’t want to be wearing my nice socks that takes so much time to make, as well as costs more than store bought socks. With the wear and tear I put on my work clothes (including socks and shoes), I don’t want to put my hand knit socks through that wear and tear.
