These are the seventh socks in the ‘When Vampires Knit Socks’ club.

These socks are inspired by the St Marco Festival which is taking place in Volterra when Bella arrives to save Edward. The colour is the red of the cloaks of the people attending the festival, with darker flashes for the folds in the fabric. Down the front and back of the sock are the hoods that the people gathering in the square are wearing and traveling down the sides are the banners they carry, twisting and rippling in the breeze.
