I'm so thankful for my lovely hand knitted socks at the moment, they keep my feet so warm and toasty, just the thing for the cold weather we're now experiencing. I've knitted quite a few pairs of socks, many for other people, but I've got a new pair to add to my own sock drawer.
These are Hermione's Everyday Socks by Erica Lueder, inspired by the Harry Potter character. I really like the pattern, both to knit and to look at, and it's available free on Ravelry.
I shall definitely be knitting these socks again, however, I'd like to knit them in a plain coloured yarn. I don't think a variegated yarn shows off the pattern as well. I've used Laughing Yaffle yarn in Mango Tango colourway on this occasion.
I've got another pair of socks on my needles at the moment and this time they're for Mick, they'll be the first pair of hand knitted socks I've made for him.
