I have a lot of things flying off of my needles recently and my Hermione socks are one of those things. I had been wanting to knit them for a while now and a KAL seemed to be just the thing to get me to start them. The Hermione sock KAL was hosted by knityorkcity on Kollabora.
With the socks I used some leftover sock yarn from another pair of socks I had made the yarn is poems by wisdom yarns. I really like the yarn, but my skein seemed to have a few yarn breaks where the yarn was tied together and it was a thick and thin yarn, and well the jury is still out on how I feel about thick and thin yarn. I had to modify the pattern because I decided to knit needle size US 2 and the first time I started them they were to big so instead of casting on 64 I cast on 56. I was much happier with the size of the socks after that. Working with the 56 stitches wasn’t bad I just had the split even between the two needles and when it came to working the heel I just subtracted 4 from whatever the original total was, so all in all my modifications didn’t cause me too much grief and made me a perfect pair of socks.
