The End of October
We have come to the end of Socktoberfest and, well, I am not mentioning the cursed socks. They are not finished--the first awaits kitchenering the toe and the second is only at the heel turn.
They are making me hate socks.

But then I looked at this non-cursed sock yarn:
I got this skein from Jeanie at UFO August. It is the "Cowboy" colorway of Hill Country Sweet Feet yarn. So yummy and soft!
And so I cast on for another pair--and in a last-minute fit of Soctoberfest energy, knit to after the decreases last night.
My faith has been restored!

In addition to this frantic-but-happy sock knitting, I spent part of my Halloween listening to Franklin Habit's phenomenal Poe-inspired performance on Brenda Dayne's podcast Cast-On. Go check it out!
