Welcome to Socktober! In addition to knitting a pair of socks for donation, my goal is to also knit as many pairs as I can for myself. I'm in desperate need. Ten plus years ago I went through a sock knitting phase where I obsessively knit nothing but socks. Once that phase ended, I haven't been able to force myself to knit another pair. And being that I walk around in my sock feet, even outdoors... Let's just leave it at, yes, I'm in desperate need of some new socks.
For my version of Socktober, Christmas stockings count as socks too. I have a few of those to knit as well. October is going to be a very busy month!
Since Socktober starts on a Thursday this year, I thought I'd share a few Halloween sock patterns today. I highly doubt I'll be making myself any of these since my goal this year is quantity, not quality. Or cuteness. But I wouldn't say no if someone wanted to gift me a pair of these. 😊
Halloween Skull Socks from Fir Tree Knitwear. That's a lot of design work considering the pattern costs less than three US dollars.
So, are you participating in Socktober? Will you be knitting a pair of Halloween socks? While writing this post I've been thinking about how strange Halloween will be this year without trick or treating, or parties, or even me having to work. Maybe I do need a pair of Halloween socks after all.
