Way back in April, I was skimming threads in the Ravelry group, Sock Knitters Anonymous, when I saw a post announcing a sock design contest by Lorna’s Laces.
After reading the rules, I remembered I had some leftover Shepherd Sock from the Slytherin socks. It seemed like a perfect project to work on during the forthcoming [...]
The past two weeks have been pretty much a blur. I had an infected ankle (of all things!) during the Memorial Day weekend. It all started with itchy feet. No fun.
p align=”center” I’ve also been itching to start a new project, but restrained myself to Ornette. And now I can show you them, because they’re [...]
For the past few days I’ve only been working on these.
That’s how many pairs of socks I knit while writing/testing this pattern! You’ve already seen the green and gray pair I knit for my Hogwarts secret pal last year. Here’s a better picture of the stitch pattern that I didn’t show you at that time. Amelia’s socks were size Medium.

It took a long time but I finally finished the socks for Amelia, my Hogwarts Sock Swap TWO pal. We had exchanged emails at the beginning of the swap where she indicated that, because she received a pair of Gryffindor socks in the previous swap, she was open to receiving a pair of socks [...]
I’ve finished both cuffs/legs of the sock for my pal in the Hogwarts Sock Swap. Today is Show and Tell Friday, and we get House Points if we blog about our socks-in-progress for our pals. Go Gryffindor! One more quick thing, Rebecca plans to host a Hogwarts Sock Swap TWO later this year (Aug [...]
This is Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in Bee Stripe from a kit. Actually, there are a couple problems with it…
Another pair finished! I’ll update my sidebar after this.
I used a lone Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock skein in the Bucks Bar colorway. You can see in the below picture how subtle the colors blend and stripe.
I finished the sockettes on Saturday night, but even though I bound off loosely, they wouldn’t fit over my heel. Which means they wouldn’t fit Grandma. So…. I undid the bind-off and tried a loose crochet bind-off. Didn’t work. Undid that, and tried a very loose sewn bind-off. It helped, but not very much. Clearly, I needed [...]
Madder Ribbed Update: I’m experiencing that sneaking feeling that I will be frogging these. I’m keeping them in their travel bag for a couple more days until I take a good look and make my decision.
A few days ago I said I was going to take a break from socks… at the time I typed [...]
