I love August; the heat of July is over, and you can actually feel the changes in the air as the temperatures start to get just a hair cooler, especially in the evenings, and the sun starts to set earlier. The anticipation of autumn is palpable.
In keeping with this theme, I moved my wool yarn bin to the top of my stash area, over the cotton bin. I have them both in our guest room closet, so it's tight quarters in there. I can only have 1 in the easy access point, and it's definitely time to break out the wool to begin toasty fall projects.
This got me to thinking about fall holidays/events, which led me to think about Halloween. This led me to think about candy corn, which led me to think about knitting candy corn inspired socks. This may not be the course of a stream of consciousness for a normal person, but it is mine. In searching for the perfect sock yarn to knit candy corn socks, I found this etsy seller who has some Halloween themed yarns that she hand spun and dyed. One of them is a self striping candy corn colorway. Xanadu!
Needless to say, I snapped it up. Candy corn socks! A lifelong dream. I can't wait for the yarn to arrive so I can start knitting them.
