Hermione's Socks Complete
Have you knit Hermione's Everyday socks? I think everyone has but me, well until now!! I had a delightful time knitting these up. I loved the simple texture pattern and the sense of accomplishment as I finished each step.
The heel flap is a new to me experience and I loved the slipped stitches along with the garter edge. However, I like my own sock recipe better, the fit is perfection and these pair of socks are sort of loosey goosey around my skinny ankles and feet (I have skinny ankles and narrow feet, not the normal foot at all). So I think it's me and not the pattern :)
I had a burning desire to do a contrast heel and toe. I love the way the sock looks, I feel stylish!

love these :) I made a very garish pair in some multicoloured yarn but I fancy making another pair in a solid or semi solid colour. Like your contrasting heels and toes, might steal that idea lolReplyDelete
Beautiful! I have not knit Hermoine socks yet, so perhaps I am the last hold out! HahahaReplyDelete
Love them! I haven't knit this pattern yet either, but was just looking at it a few days ago and considering it for my next try at socks. I'm very grateful you shared about having thin ankles/feet - my son and I both have narrow feet and thin ankles/lower legs and my first pair of socks is too big all over, even knit in "my" size. I only wear them at home on cold days when I can bear that extra material sliding around on me, which isn't anywhere near as fun as going out places with my friends and having someone ask if I knit those socks. ;)ReplyDelete
I've made these as well, but I like you version with the alternate heels and toes better. And I just used my usual heel recipe when I knit mine.ReplyDelete
Congrats on the finish. They are very pretty.ReplyDelete
I'm working on a pair of Hermione's right now. :-) It's a great pattern.
do you know i still have not knitted up a pair of grown up socks.. baby booties yes... but not socks!! i will have to work on that!ReplyDelete
ps - your "socksers" as garren used to call them - are lovely.
Lovely! And so addictive! I want to make so many more of these!ReplyDelete
They are gorgeous! I love that soft color. And you are the only one, I haven't knit them either, and considering I lost the sock bug long ago, likely never! LOLReplyDelete
I've not done Hermione's sock either. But after I saw yours in progress I put it in my queue.ReplyDelete
Now THOSE are fun . LOve the purple and the whiteReplyDelete
I love the color combination. Hermione's sock pattern is such a grateful pattern, it can be knit in so many ways, monocolored yarn, variegated yarn, contrasting heels and toes. Yours look splendid!ReplyDelete
Yay! What a goodlooking pair these are.ReplyDelete
those socks are so cute! very nice!!! (just catching up on things, lovely weekend you had, you look so nice in that dress! :)))) )ReplyDelete
Wow! I've never knit Hermione's socks. I've seen 100's of photos of them & have always felt sort of 'Meh" about them. But your socks.... something about them is making me want to go knit a pair.ReplyDelete
I really enjoyed adding contrast toe/cuff in my last sock. Your Hermione's are beautiful!ReplyDelete
I was just looking at that pattern to try and knit my first pair of socks. Yours look great!ReplyDelete
I haven't knit a pair of Hermione's yet although the pattern has been in my queue forever! I love yours the contrast looks great.ReplyDelete
