Le Manoir du Diable Socks

My thirteenth pair of socks for the year, and they're appropriately spooky. The pattern, Le Manoir du Diable (free Ravelry download) is named after a silent movie from 1896, believed to be the first horror movie. You can find it on YouTube. It's only three minutes long, but I don't have the patience  to sit through the whole thing.

I made a couple of mistakes with this pair. The yarn is too busy to show off the stitch pattern...but they weren't hard to knit and I would've wanted more than just plain stockinette and ribbing for this yarn anyway. The eyelets are supposed to go all the way down the foot, but I got distracted and stopped paying attention to the chart.

I've only knitted a few hats, but I have a hankering to try socks. Everyone says it's not that hard, but I just can't bring myself to invest the time to get started on a pair. Maybe someday - yours sure look cozy!

Oh they do look snuggly! I think I prefer the socks to the sound of the horror film - even 3 minutes is too long for me!
