This is the first sock for the ‘When Vampires Knit Socks’ club.

These socks are inspired by the green and lush setting of the town of Forks. All the rain and clouds that make it an ideal place for sparkly vampires to live, mean that the landscape is full of trees, ferns and moss. These socks have a full moon and tall trees growing out of moss covered rocky ground, which leads to the river that runs through the forest (and down the foot of this sock). On the back of the leg is a lace leaf pattern, to represent the thick foliage in the woods which surround Bella’s house, Edward’s house and many other places. At the beginning of the story, Bella moves to Forks from Arizona, the contrast between the dry, brown desert and the wet, green woods is something that takes a long time to get used to!

Size: Foot circumference 8-10 inches. This sock will fit a variety of sizes due to the ribbed nature and the lace.
