One Blink For Yes Socks
My first Christmas sock pattern! And Stranger Things themed as well, my inner geek approves 😉 The ‘One Blink For Yes’ socks are inspired by a specific scene from Stranger Things Season 1, where Will is trapped in a different dimension, and his mom Joyce tries to communicate with him via the christmas lights in her home.
When Joyce asks Will what to do, he uses the lights to spell R-U-N, because the monster is coming!! I found this scene so iconic that I wanted to knit some socks inspired by it, so my socks have three strings of christmas lights around the leg, and I’ve embroidered the word ‘RUN’ onto it. As Stranger Things is my absolute favourite series of the moment, I love that I finally have Stranger Things inspired socks!
Of course you can make them generally christmassy by embroidering ‘Merry Christmas’, ‘Happy Holidays’ or even ‘Twinkle Twinkle’. The choice is yours!
Kari from Show Reel Studios yarn has lovingly dyed up kits for this pattern, they will be available from her Etsy shop HERE. Use the code NEWLEAF20 for 20% off on all of her yarns! Go and get yourself some beautiful yarn and make a small business owner happy 🙂
