Getting in the spirit of Hallowe'en. A time for mischief and magic and little pumpkins socks.
::Regia Silk Sock Yarn::

::2.25mm Knitpicks dpns::
::Knitpicks small ridged cable needle::
Pattern free on Ravelry by Sheepaints (Sabine Rupert). The link to her site will give you the option to print the pattern as a pdf file in American English.
I heard about this pattern whilst listening to the Stash and Burn podcast and when I saw this lovely pale pumpkin coloured yarn at my local yarn shop I knew I was going to cast on.

This was a wonderfully quick project to knit. The yarn is soft and warm and the design is fun and different. I think I may have enough yarn left to make a second to give away this Christmas.
Pattern instructions were easy to follow and the only changes I made were to use a smaller needle for the frilled edge on one edge and to pick up on the wrong side for the second edge so that when folded the picking up would not show.
