In my experience, creation falls into two categories: quick and slow. Whether one is writing a story or building a piece of furniture, some things come together in a flash of frenzied inspiration, while others must cook for a long, long time. This sock pattern falls into the latter category. I have noodled out and knit up versions of it since December 2008 when it made it’s debut as a multicolor striped slipper sock for my brother’s girlfriend.
Although I love the funky multicolor stripey-ness, this early sock needed to be knit at a tighter gauge to be more durable.
First I had a detour into some Harry Potter themed House Socks, which gave me the name, but were still too loose.
A few years later, I got around to reworking the numbers and quickly had these!
Before giving them over to the whole wide world, I had some friends test it out. Thank you, friends!
