Favorite Thing Friday: Hermione’s Everyday Socks

Standard

A late summer decision to re-read the entire Harry Potter series clearly inspired my latest knitting project – Hermione’s Everyday Socks. This is not my first time with this pattern. Last Christmas I made a pair of “Gryffindor Socks” for a gift. Two years before that, I made a pair for myself, but they felted so much the stitch pattern disappeared.

Between gifting and felting, I needed to make myself a new pair of Hermione’s Days Socks! I settled on my go-to sock yarn, Paton’s Kroy Ragg Stripes in Brown Rose Marl. The color choice came from watching Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban not too long ago. Hermione wears a rose pink hoodie in the movie and my yarn stash had the perfect shade to go with that hoodie!

Do you think Hermione would approve?

Hermione’s Everyday Socks

I knit these up on my KB sock loom, using 52 pegs. The pattern is written for double-pointed needles but it transfers just fine to a sock loom as long as the number of pegs allows for the pattern repeat.

My next project kicks off the Christmas knitting season. Several family members have put in their “orders,” which makes it all the more fun!
