Zombies!

I had been hoping to have these special socks done in time for Halloween, but I didn’t quite make it.  Two years ago one of my favorite dyers Beemiceelf released a special Halloween colorway in her club, Zombie Invasion.

I managed to find someone who didn’t love theirs and purchased it. I held it in my stash, hoping one day I would spin well enough to turn it into socks. That didn’t quite happen.

Earlier this year a good friend Sarah and I decided to swap handspun yarns. She offered to spin me some sock yarn and I spun her something a little chunkier. I knew immediately what to send her. And she absolutely did not disappoint:

I absolutely cannot say enough good things about her mad spinning skills – this yarn was PERFECT.  I used a fairly simple toe-up sock recipe designed by another one of my favorite dyers David.

Now I’m gonna go watch The Walking Dead with my toasty Zombie toes!

    I am such a sucker for anything zombie themed. I love the colors (and the socks)!
