New Socks, Two socks, New socks, Blue socks

Well, wasn't this fun? Susan at "I'm Knitting as Fast as I Can!" published a knitalong for these socks last week. I didn't find the knitalong until it was practically over, but I pulled out 100 grams of worsted weight wool (Patons "Classic Wool", size US 5 needles) and worked up the socks anyway (and they were a great project to pass the time during the U-Texas Regional Science Olympiad, at which our high school team placed second, thankyouverymuch!). The pattern is as yet unnamed, although hints dropped seem to have something to do with Harry Potter. Lightning bolt socks, maybe? Socks of the Horcrux? Can't-wait-for-July-and-HPVII socks? How about "Socks-That-Must-Not-Be-Named"?

CIC Knits, Jan 2007

Bottom-up raglan sweater in about a children's size 12. Knitted from one strand worsted, one strand sport weight on size 9 needles. Socks knitted in assorted wool yarns as I tried to perfect my short-row heel.
