Sock finish and stitching start

This is a photo of the pair of socks I finished using Socks That Rock yarn. I really, really, really love this yarn. It is incredibly soft and a real pleasure to work with. Unfortunately, these socks can't qualify for an official Summer of Socks pair as I misread the blog and thought the official start date was June 1st when it was in fact June 21st! Oh well, I've started a new pair and they will count towards my tally - once they're finished that is!

I also started two new cross stitch projects - one I can show and one I cannot. I went to a stitch in at my friend Nancy's house on Saturday and she was showing me all the wonderful projects she has started. By the time I got home, I had the bug to start something new so I went through my charts and decided to stitch something for Halloween. I chose HIH's Halloween Medley as I thought it would be a quick and easy stitch. Here is my progress as of last night. This is what it will look like when it's done.

I am thinking I will either frame it as shown or I might try my hand at making it into a wall hanging. I am on a mission to increase my Halloween decorations and I thought this would make a good start. I love Heart In Hand designs, especially their Halloween pieces.

Hi Patti! Isn't that HIH Halloween pattern the cutest thing! I love Halloween! Your socks rock too! I am quite impressed with all your crafty efforts. Have you seen the knitted bead bracelets on Legacy? They are too cool! Check it out in the Finis section. Vero knitted them. Talk to you soon!
