Horcrux Socks

These were from the Six Sox KAL two patterns ago. Time flies! The name comes from Harry Potter's scar. The designer was surmising that she thought Harry's scar was a horcrux. Of course, now that the last book has come out, many of us know whether that was true or not. ;)

The pattern was really fun and fast to knit. Although, I'm not crazy about knitting ribbing down the whole foot of the sock.

The yarn is Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in the Misty Moor colorway. I liked how the colors matched the covers of the last couple Harry Potter books (before Deathly Hallows). This yarn is so soft! It's very apparent when you just sit there trying on socks and taking pictures for your blog all in a row. These were the softest socks by far. I'm concerned that it may pill, though. I finished these after it was warm out, so I haven't worn them all day yet.

My oldest daughter is trying to steal some of my other CTH sock yarn for herself. The stinker.

Those are cool! I am halfway through Deathly Hallows, haven't learned if the scar is a horcrux or not yet! :)

Oh for Heaven's sake! You need to take E shopping for her own yarn! LOL! I like the pattern in this one.
