Somewhere Over the Rainbow...

My tendons are better. I have been able to knit a little here and there, so I finished the rainbow-colored knee-high bed socks for my sister. They are going out with the big package o' knits that's been sitting on my wardrobe, waiting to be mailed.


They work as knee highs... or as slouch socks. Psychedelic slouch socks. Yeah!

Boring details:
Pattern: Helless Bed Socks from Knitting Vintage Socks
Yarn: Schoppel Wolle Zauberball in Frische Fische
Needles: US #1
Comments: A fun knit. Because I usually knit socks on 0's, these practically flew by.

The other thing that flew by... 2 ounces of corriedale. Here they are, all spun up, waiting to be plied. And look at my cute project bag! Not surprisingly, it's a Halloween theme. With spiders.


I get most of my stuff around Halloween. Best time for bat- and spider-themed stuff.

Those colors are marvelous, and the socks are delightful - bright and cheery for wearing on a cool fall day! I love your spider bag, too. Need to get to the fabric shop - Halloween fabrics are the best.

Wild color socks!! Nice looking handspun too. Cute bag. How's the needlecase working?

Soo pretty, I love the slouchiness of them too! Awesome for hanging around the house!!

Hallo Batty,
Deine Kniestrümpfe sind so toll geworden. Sie sind viel zu schade für Bettsocken.

Liebe Grüße
Mary

OMG! I don't know which I love more - those awesome socks or that fabric!! Like you, I love Halloween stuff. I've already picked up two new Halloween fabrics this season. :-)

Oh wow, those socks are awesome! That colourway might be one of my new favourites!

And gorgeous yarn! I wish I were patient enough to spindle useful quantities...

Nice socks!!

You know, like Turtlegirl and the turtles, I find myself finding a lot more bat stuff outside of Halloween b/c of you!

I'm glad your arm is better!

Wonderful! I'm making some Regia color silks for DH...on 2s. Ha! I started yesterday and I swear the first sock is almost half-way done (n.b. this means that I will cast off on the second sock on December 26th.)

Your sister will love them. What a terrific gift. =^..^=

I totally read that as "Hells Bells Socks" at first. Apparently, I need to go to bed.

They're so pretty!
