Wee Tiny Sock Club - September 2011

“Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead is celebrated in Mexico and other parts of the world at the beginning of November. Families create altars (called ofrendas) and decorate them with marigolds and other bright flowers, candles and incense, and the favorite foods and drinks of loved ones who have passed away. These colorful altars are a way to celebrate, honor, and connect with the dead. Another tradition of Day of the Dead is the sugar skull or Calaveras de Azucar. Molded from sugar and decorated with colorful icing, foil, and flowers, the sugar skulls inspired this wee tiny sock. Marigold flowers are knit separately for the eyes. The nose and lopsided smile are made with yarn overs. I hope you’ll knit with good memories in honor of your departed loved ones.”
