Hermione's Everyday Socks

And I finished another pair of socks. I decided to start my Christmas knitting and to make a pair of socks for some of my closest relatives, so this is the first installment into the Christmas socks box. I posed with them shortly before I wash them, block them and put them away for six months.

Pattern: Hermione's Everyday Socks
Yarn: Alize Superwash 60 g, hand dyed
Needle: 2.5 mm
Time to knit: 2 weeks

Hermione's Everyday Socks by  Erica Lueder is a simple, free sock pattern on Ravelry, which creates lightly textured socks. I made these with my usual 60 sts instead of 64 sts as the pattern calls - the texture of the pattern is elastic and the number of stitches should be the same as in plain vanilla socks, IMO. I knit them with my favourite Addi circular needles, using magic loop. The heels are Fish Lips Kiss Heels. The cuff is finished with invisible elastic bind off, using a tapestry needle.

  1. This looks like a pair Hermione would wear herself. Great job. I'm thinking of trying magic loop and TAAT for my next pair.
