Dark Passenger Socks
(a.k.a. Halo Socks)
Pattern: Garter Toes by Karen Harper
Yarn: Propaganda Yarns Nadya in "Dark Passenger"
Needles: US 1
Ravelry Dexter Forum about this Dexter-inspired colorway, saw it and the stitch markers (duct tape roll, plastic wrap roll, blood spatter tile), and ordered it without a second thought! When it came in the mail and I saw it in person, I knew: socks for John. I had queued the pattern weeks before and knew it would be perfect for the colorway. I was right! She sells a blood orange colorway that's pretty awesome, too.
The only modifications I made to the pattern were to up the stitch count for his larger foot. You can see all my mods on the project page. He'll be getting a few more pairs out of this pattern, I suspect. He really likes them. But he says that about everything I knit. :P I told him he can't have this pair until we start watching Season 5 of Dexter. He's thinking about it. :)
Now back to Christmas knitting! What are you making for Christmas?
