So yesterday, Sunday knitting at Panera's was the occasion for casting on halloween socks.
I still haven't perfected the candy corn motif I want to add and besides, the idea has been enlarged, and moved.
It will be a sort of clock on the side of the leg, not a band on near the cuff. There might be some knit 3D candy corns to dangle from the cuff, too. (I took a cyber trip to MochiMochi Land, and was inspired!) Mine won't have eyes.. but aren't they adorable?
This is a pair of toe up socks (the last few socks it seems have been cuff down, and it was time for a change) –with mixed (Fibonacci's numbered rows) stripes; 8 purple, 1 green, 5 black, 2 orange, and 3 yellow. Each set of stripes-- (19 R's)-- is
I don't obsess about the jog that occurs when striping—I make a small effort to minimize it.. but for the most part, I live with it.

Oh—Yeah it's one of those weeks! I work on the Sunday NYTimes crossword puzzle every week—and every 9 to 10 weeks—I complete it! Tthis week is one of those half dozen times or so every year that I solve it (every cross!) --I didn't start till last night, after dinner, (after knitting!) and I had it done before bedtime!
