With all the hype of the newest Harry Potter book release and play I'm got Potter on the brain. I just finished reading the new book and have the illustrated version prepped and ready to read. My knitting just seemed to follow along. My latest FO is Bellatrix Socks by Monkey Toes.
This sock pattern is part of my 12in16 club (mentioned here and here). This is pair #5 and I'm so in love with them!
The yarn I received as a graduation gift and I didn't have much of a plan for it. The yarn is Done Roving Yarns, Frolicking Feet in the Razzberry Brambles colorway. Frolicking Feet is a 100% Merino base and so springy! This yarn was so nice to knit with! I love the way the colors work in the dropped stitch sections, this was a perfect yarn for the pattern!
I did find that the drop stitches made the leg a bit loose. Because of this I decided not to use the drop stitches on the top of the foot. I used my regular US 1.5 needles and Eye of Partridge heel flat and turn, this combo couldn't be better for my foot shape! Toasty feet for fall for me!
They look so comfy!!! The drop stitches create such an interesting effect!ReplyDelete
My mom is so in love with the drop stitches she wants to dye up a similar style yarn and knit the same pattern!Delete
What a gorgeous colourway. Beautiful knitting!ReplyDelete
I LOVE how the colorway knit up! Too dark for a shawl but just perfect for a pair of socksDelete
What a lovely pattern...they look great.ReplyDelete
Thanks! The pattern was really straight forward and they're Harry Potter inspired so that just made me happy!Delete
That is a good tidbit to know about how the drop sts affect sizing. I am still hedging on reading the newest book. I love the original seven and don't want to be disappointed. I just hosted a Harry Potter family birthdays dinner last weekend. We had fun.ReplyDelete
