So on Sunday I finished my Sock of Doom for ... Sock Wars! They're made from Rowan Tapestry, which is a 70% wool, 30% soybean fibre yarn. It's a beautiful yarn in the ball, but DAMN does it fuzz up when you knit with it. I guess that's what I get for knitting with a single ply yarn. It's very soft, though, and my Victim seems to enjoy them. The striping works a lot like Noro in that it doesn't seem to follow the same colour pattern, behold:

Definitely fraternal socks.

Ceres was not fond of the socks. Luckily for her, they got sent to Maryland.

Here are the socks inside their fiendish packaging (remember the post about being a Halloween junkie? ;)):

These were probably the quickest socks I've ever knit. Size five needles and sport-weight yarn just FLIES by. I'm guesstimating that each sock took me about 4-5 hours. Unfortunately, it looks like my assassin has got her socks in the mail, so I'm DOOOOOOOMED!

October is coming soon, and I'm thinking of trying to do a bit of a Halloween theme. Maybe I'll review some spooky books, some spooky movies, and maybe even some spooky music. As I mentioned before, I'm bit of a horror movie buff. If you, dear reader, like the same sort of thing, check this site out. It's run by two sisters who review horror movies and make the Best Cakes Ever.

Tomorrow: Hell if I know. It's been a long week, and it's only Wednesday.

Your socks look great! I'm glad to see you have a cat too just on the off chance my kitties may have snuggled your socks when I wasn't looking.
