Back around Halloween I decided I needed a pair of Halloween socks… I had some Three Ewes Twisted in Fiber sitting around and decided to cast it on. Somehow I managed to lose the tag for these socks, but I believe it is in the Ewephoric Sock yarn with the Green-Eyed Monster colorway…thus the green-eyed monster socks.
I cast on 68 stitches and did an afterthought heel. They quickly became the socks that ride around in my purse.
My poor socks took a backseat.
I finished the socks this past Saturday and while I love the way they look, they don’t quite fit right. I have used the afterthought heel tutorial from TheKnitGirllls a few times and I never manage to make the foot long enough before starting the toe. I am determined to get it right eventually.
For now I stand by the “the yarn will stretch” mentality, but overall they worked great for the one day I wore them.
