Lionheart, Part 2

I finished my Lionheart socks and I could not be more pleased. I’ve been rereading the Harry Potter series this summer in anticipation of the new book coming out in July (among other reasons- hint, hint).

Neville Longbottom Socks

This particular pair was made using Lueder’sย Neville’s Socks pattern and Knit Picks Stroll Sock yarn – it’s been a while since I used a solid sock yarn and I really like how it lets the sock pattern shine.

Lionheart, Part 1

I really enjoyed the last Erica Lueder sock pattern I madeย so I decided that my next pair of socks would be Neville’s Socks. It’s a subtle stitch pattern that’s easily memorized so these are just flying off my needles.

At first I thought I would make them in green as a nod to Neville’s love of herbology, but the more I thought about it the more I realized how much Neville truly embodied Gryffindor’s core values – so red it was! The yarn is Stroll in Firecracker Heather.

Hermione’s Everyday Socks

It’s been over a year since I’ve knit myself a pair of socks (that last pair is preparing to be frogged, so they don’t count), so I headed into my stash and pulled out some Patons Socks Kroy FX in the Cameo colourway. I’ve had Erica Lueder’s Hermione’s Everyday Socks in my queue for quite some time – she’s ย got great sock patterns inspired by all sorts of Harry Potter characters and places and there are about half a dozen or so in my queue.

Love the texture

These are a really easy knit so they’re moving a long quickly. Now that I look at it, the colours really remind me of my Sid Cowl from earlier in the year.
