Hogwarts Sock Swap Show & Tell

Knit, knit, knit.... I have finally picked a pattern for my Hogwarts Sock Swap Pal. As you can tell by the colors, my pal is in Gryffindor. I won't hold that against her. Hope I don't sound too much like a Slytherin because I am actually in Ravenclaw. Anyway, I picked one of the patterns from the Sensational Knitted Socks book. It's the Garter Rib pattern. But I am doing it toe up instead of cuff down as I only have one hank of the Gryffindor yarn. I used the Aloha Cast On method from the Queen Kahuna Crazy Toes & Heels Sock Book. It is chocked full of pictures which are a great help for a visual learner like myself. Well worth the cost of the book.

The yarn came from Cosmic Fibers. It is hand-dyed and I absolutely love it. I actually have two hanks in Ravenclaw colors for myself. Right now I am having too much fun admiring the Ravenclaw yarn. One day both hanks will be socks for me. There is a very good chance that I will buy the yarn from there for the next Hogwarts Sock Swap. Yes, there will be a second round of the swap. So if you missed out on this round, mark your calendars for July 14th. That is when sign-ups open for Hogwarts Sock Swap II.
