These are pretty much identical to the pair that I knit in October of 2014.
When I finished those, I was kind of bummed to discover that I'd bought the same yarn twice. Because, as gorgeous as it is, who needs two pairs of matching Halloween socks? And what is there to do with this yarn but plain stockinette and ribbing?
A friend's injured foot and love of Halloween, which gave me the perfect motivation to knit these up on a tight deadline... although if I could make the choice, I'd definitely wish she was pain free and the yarn was still in my stash waiting for a purpose.
