I selected Priscilla’s Dream Socks , from Favorite Socks, for my Hogwart Pal because it is supposedly a well-fitting sock and easy to knit. My pal’s feet are wider than mine and I wanted to make sure it would fit her feet…..I guess I will find out SOON! My pal is a Slytherin so I knit her socks in the Slytherin colors of green and silver.
Unfortunately, I have been in SHORT-ROW HEEL class all day long! After several leaps into the frog pond, I finally decided to look on-line for a tutorial and found one on Purlwise’s site. This will not be the first time her well photographed tutorials have helped me climb out of that wretched frog pond! So as of 3:00 this afternoon, I have successfully knit my first short-row heel! YAY! I have one more short-row adventure waiting for me at the end of the foot, a short-row TOE!
These socks need to be flying by muggle mail this weekend to my pal. The owl is on sabbatical.
