Wicked Enjoyment

A brief frustration with symbol confusion drove me away from Spring Queen. Let's just say that the symbol key has an upside down triangle and a right side up triangle and leave it at that.

I switched over to Something Wicked with the vague idea of finishing off the text...and just finished the whole thing.


While I think this spiderweb is adorable, I wonder how a shoe that is being worn can gather it! I guess it's just magic.


I'd like to once more express my love for these cool stripy socks! IRL all my socks are the exact same black one. I bought out every pack in the store. No need to match and it doesn't matter if the laundry monster eats one ;)


In the real world spiders give me a start and while I don't head for the nearest weapon, I prefer to keep my distance. However I adore cartoon spiders and enjoy looking at spiders that are separated from me by glass/cage/etc. I am also very pleased that they have the correct number of limbs!

I love it Blu! I love the green stripey socks, I wish I had a pair. Mine are all plain boring white, and all the same kind too, lol.

Looks like a fun design to do and you did very well on this.

I love colorful socks! I have plenty and no matter how old I am (43), I still wear them :-D

Now that looks like a fun stitch. I love when bloggers explain the details. When I look at finish, I always miss a lot of those.

Vonna said...

A terrific finish! I think this is one of my all-time favorite holiday related finishes...I bet it will rate right up there for you too!

Sally said...

Love your finish! Love the socks and those spiders!

Pumpkin said...

LOL! Great finish Blu :o)

Lonneke said...

Great finish!
I understand your triangle frustration. Arrows are also such a joy. They go up and down and left and right and they love to hang out together!

Ziggyeor said...

Awesome! Perfect since it's half way to Halloween ;)

I hate those symbols too. I had a pattern that didn't have very many colors but they still chose capital and lowercase letters and one was S :p Finally looked at the front and figured out what I had done wrong.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

What a great finish!

Anti-spider tip - put conkers in the corner of each room. My spider-phobic friend swears by it!

Annette said...

Nickname.. thank you so much for the tip!! I'm so afraid of spiders....
Great progress..

Good luck with the luck!!
