Progress on the second Snake Skin Sock (or the SSSS or S^4)

So, I didn’t manage to finish a pair of socks during Socktober – never mind! I’ve really enjoyed looking through all of the photos posted to the Flickr group. However, I did manage to acquire some sock yarn though!

Kiwi tonal and Evergreen tonal from Socks that Fit.

These are for a sock pattern that’s been bouncing around in my head for about a year! They’ll be destined for my mum, at some point.

I’ve made progress on the Mystery Shawl border (although I’ve managed to make a mistake in the stitch counts I did to show myself that I was making progress. Never mind, it should all work out eventually!

Well, I’m now going to sit in the dark and pretend I’m not home in the hope that this silly Trick or Treat nonsense will go away if I close my eyes and wish hard ehough! (I’m a fun person to be around, I really am!)

  1. Socktober, Schmoctober!! What beautiful sock wool. No need to hide here: Halloween Trick or Treaters her at all. We had a Halloween Knitting Coven (How appropriate!) with Ghost Meringues, Candy Corn and a Gingerbread Haunted House though!! Do UKers really celebrate Halloween???


  2. Yep. No tricks or treats here. No requirement to provide the dead beat neighbourhood kids with treats they don’t deserve.
    I did scare my class for Halloween….I told them they would all be in my class again next year as well. A mixed bag of responses….some thought it a great treat( silly fools) and some though the Spanish Inquisition ( that no one ever expects) would be a better prize. They really really hoped that was a trick .
