Elizabeta is a lace knee-high sock designed around the 1992 version of Bram Stoker's Dracula. That movie has an all-star cast and it was beautifully shot. It's my favorite Dracula movie, and I wanted to do a sock based on it last season but I ran out of time. As you may recall, I was on a bride kick (Bride of Frankenstein was one of last year's releases). But it turned out that this design was able to stand on it's own, and I think that the extra year it spent rattling around in my head turned out to be a good thing, because it went in a fun, different and amazing direction. Plus, look at these incredible photos!
As usual, this design is exclusive to the Super Sock Scarefest and will be released to the general public after the 2012 round wraps up (roughly mid-November). Send me an email if you would like a personal reminder when it goes on sale.
And finally, I'd like to give a special thanks to Barb Brown, who's book Knitted Knee-Highs took the mystery out of designing and knitting knee-high socks. Thanks for sharing your knowledge with the world, and encouraging us to knit more knee-high socks!
For more photos, check out my project page. And again, tomorrow I'll be posting some fun behind-the-scenes pics and talking about the shoot.
