First Socktoberfest Socks!
And...unless I knit like the wind over the next few days, my ONLY pair for this month. Work's been busy so the knitting time has been scarce but I'm happy with how this pair came out.
These socks are yet another example of the kindness of Knittyheads! The yarn was a RAK from the fabulous ZKnitter and the pattern was a sneak peek from the soon to be published, Soap Fiber Gal!
The pattern is called Scales Skin Socks (S.S.S) aka Snake Skin socks and has a picot edge cuff.
The yarn is Sunshine Yarns by Dani and in the Dragonfly colorway.
Cary wants to give a shout out to the St. Louis Cardinals for winning the World Series! Even tho' we're Oakland A's fans, Cary is grateful to the Cardinal's Manager, Tony La Russa, for co-founding the incredible ARF (Animal Rescue Foundation).
A few years ago Cary was on death row at a shelter somewhere in central California when he was saved by ARF volunteers. They took good care of him until the day he was adopted me 2.5 years ago. He's still a little shy from his life on the streets but has adjusted to his current life of sleeping in the sun, sitting in the window and stealing balls of yarn quite well.
