Vamp and Circe – October 2013 Sock Club

October’s shipment featured a deep red yarn that recalls witches, vampires and other scary Halloween folklore. Dyed by Pagewood Farm in southern California, the Glacier Bay yarn has been a favorite of mine since I first saw it years ago. With a very tight twist and merino composition, it makes for sturdy socks. The generous yardage is great for slightly larger projects too. I’m surprised it’s not easier to find!

Vamp 2

Worked in deep blood red colored yarn, the Vamp socks feature diagonal twisted cable panels that join
in a V at the top of the foot. The V is both for Vampire and perhaps a vampire fang. The panels also form a diagonal frame with nested knit and purl diamonds.

Circe 1

The Circe socks feature a swirling leaf pattern which is created from the biasing of the lace pattern. Left and right socks are mirrored, and the asymmetrical gusset shaping is formed using decreases within the lace pattern and one decrease in the usual gusset area.

The Vamp and Circe patterns are exclusive to the Cookie A Sock Club until October 15, 2014.

I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
