zombie walk



I couldn't resist -- I finish one pair of socks and just have to cast on another! Simple stockinette ones this time, but I'm going to change it up a bit and try Cat Bordhi's Sweet Tomato Heel. My mom has been knitting socks using this heel and seems to love it as much as everyone else who has tried it, so it's time for me to give it a go!



I cast on in the new Miss Bab's yarn that I got in the mail in the colorway Zombie Games. I love how moody this colorway is while still featuring bright pops of green, teal, and burgundy. I think I'll love this pair. I'll be looking for a way to double-strand or reinforce the heel -- any ideas?



I forsee knitting a lot this weekend while watching Falling Skies, and hopefully during The Walking Dead, too. Do any of you watch The Walking Dead? I read the comics after the first season -- I'm very addicted, which surprises me, considering how zombies are my biggest fear ever. Irrational, I know.

  2. I loved that when you shared it in the hank, and it's gorgeous knitted up too!

    I watch Walking Dead (just watched the most recent episode last night) and think it's so good even though I normally don't care at all about zombie things. Though I do like post-apocalyptic scenarios.

    1. Have you watched The Road? One of my all time favorite post-apocalyptic films.

    1. I have mixed feelings on it at the moment. It makes it hard to try the sock on as you go -- I am trying to get enough of the foot of the sock done to see if it even fits. The method though is super easy to learn! And she is basically teaching a new way of short rows without wraps, which will come in handy.
