WIP: Hermione’s Everyday Socks

I am so unbelievably excited to say that I’m working on this project! I’ve mentioned it before in several entries, but I don’t think I ever told y’all that this was the pattern that made me want to knit socks in the first place. So successfully working on it now makes me feel like I’ve achieved sock knitting perfection. (Which is totally untrue! I’ve only knitted 1 1/2 successful pairs of socks before, ha ha!)

IMG_1986I also found that it’s really hard to take good pictures of in-progress socks. I just couldn’t find a good angle to show off the texture while showing my current progress. I’ll post some better ones once I finish up!

It’s actually been a while since I took this picture. This is the first sock; I’ve since completed it and am now working on the foot of the second sock. I’m almost to the toe, and I’m sooooo excited to finish these up and put them on my feet! Nothing feels better than finally getting to wear the project you’ve been working so hard on~

The yarn I’m using was actually picked out by T. (Doesn’t he have good taste?) I was walking around the craft store with an arm full of yarn that I couldn’t choose from. He took a look and selected this. And it’s been so nice to work with! No splitting, no unraveling, no mysterious knots, and I love the colors! I hadn’t thought about it when we first bought it because I couldn’t see the color pattern until I worked it up, but the colors totally remind me of the Tardis!
(And the yarn is Premier Yarns brand Wool-Free sock yarn in Oceanic, in case you wanted to know. πŸ˜‰ )

I’m hoping to reach the toe today and see if I can’t finish it up. Hopefully I’ll have a couple FOs to show you in the near future. πŸ˜€

    1. Thank you! πŸ˜€
      And I know, right!? I’ve only just started and I’m already addicted. I have 4 other sock patterns picked out, and I ordered a ton of sock yarn from Knit Picks since they’re having a sale. I can’t wait to start them. πŸ˜€
