Ghoul-Toe Tuesday: Halloween Edition
Just in time for casual Halloween costume Friday, my Halloween Socks are finished. The clogs really set them off, don't they? These were very quick to knit, aided by a couple of long flights and a shorter than usual cuff. I used about half of the giant skein of Vesper Sock Yarn (in the Great Googlie Mooglie colorway), so maybe next year I'll knit another spooky pair--maybe with contrasting toes & cuffs, or combined with the other Vesper Halloween colors in the stash. Hmmm. . . . maybe some witchy wristlets, or a little shawl with Evil edging?
When I took the photo above, I opted for a dark-ish location, well after dark. More Halloween-y (and less waiting for daylight, which I've barely seen in the last couple of weeks), I suppose. But spookier by far than the socks is this haunting, grainy shot of Frieda, who had to get in the middle of things:
I'm not sure what's going through her tiny, pea-sized brain, but I don't think that it's good.
