The Weasley Homestead, Pt. 1

The other day I noticed that I don’t really have any mindless TV knitting. Actually that’s a lie – I do have my Golden Girls afghan, but it’s too hot to have a a giant pile of wool in my lap right now. So you can see that I needed a new project on the needles.

I’ve had this pretty Lana Grossa Meilenweit Aloha in my stash for a while now and it was just begging for a chance to be socks.

Lueder has a whole line of sock patterns inspired by Harry Potter and I think I’m going to have to work my way through them all, you might remember that I already made the Hermione and Neville socks a while back.

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). So I plan on making many more of Erica Lueder’s Harry Potter themed socks in the near future.

Neville Longbottom Socks

This particular pair was made using Lueder’s 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.
