Socks you may want to see.

I thought I'd post all my Potter Socks for people in the current swap to see. They still are not up on Ravelry.

This first sock was knitted for a Hufflepuff, and is inspired by the three challenges in Goblet of Fire. The top is false flame stitch, for dragons; the middle is bubble stitch, for the lake, and the foot is the maze pattern, a mosaic. I designed this sock.



This next sock was knitted for a Gryffindor whose favorite character was Hermione. I also designed this one. The ribbing is hourglass ribbing - for her time turner, and for the points she was always getting for the Gryffindor points hourglass. The first colored section at the top depicts the canaries she sicced on Ron... The middle section represents both the coins she charmed for the DA and the SPEW badges. The foot is as close as I could get to little beaded handbags. You do need a bit of imagination there, but now that you know it, can't you see it?



I did NOT design this sock, which is called "King's Cross" after the station, but I felt King's Cross did fit the Potterverse so well. I got the pattern from the blog of a Raveler called "wollehun" although I am probably spelling that incorrectly. I will try to edit with a direct link tomorrow - I love this pattern so much I have already knit it twice and will be doing it again.



I would love comments. I am writing up the patterns for the two I designed and wonder what people think.

I remember seeing your socks before, and it is nice to see them again. They are beautiful. I would love to see the patterns for them.

They're great, you're King's Cross!
Thanx for knitting the pattern!

Hi Belladonna thanks for the birthday wishes. You wanted to know where I got the really cool mug for Cass G-P (i got one for myself as well) I picked it up over at the HSKS store. I put a link to on it on my most recent post and how to change to the morphing mug option. I found the store link on the Hogwarts Sock Kit Swap website. Have fun!
