Harvest Sock Swap

I finished putting together my swap package for the Harvest Sock Swap. I decided to follow a Halloween theme, partly because with the temperatures being in the 80's and today being 90 it just didn't feel like October to me, I wanted to have a sense that autumn had arrived. The questionnaire was a wealth of information when putting together the treats and extras that I included. The witch sock bag is a hoot, I included stickers, pins, two treat bags and of course the yarn and pattern to knit the other sock, I needle treated by including Lanter Moon Sox Sticks. The pattern is the Crooked Cable Socks by Sock Bug, which I adapted quite a bit and included a separate adapted pattern to use.

The Sock is knitted using Seacoast in Cobbler,

I think it turned out rather pretty.

I think I will post the package this weekend, as I want it to arrive in time for Halloween enjoyment.

The weather man just informed us that this is a new record breaking day in Pittsburgh, 90 degrees we shattered the old October 8th recored set in 1916 of 86 degrees. Come on Friday, I need to feel those 60's.
