Sunshine Yarns has been running a Harry Potter Sock Club. My last installment which will be self-striping Gryffindor yarn should arrive sometime this month I think. The two previous colours have been sock club exclusives (for the moment). The first was "Just another Weasley" - lots of browns and reddish straw colours. Then a few weeks ago, "The colorway that must not be named" turned up on my doorstep.
So it seemed appropriate that this yarn should make its way into a pair of Horcrux Socks. I love the zig-zag shape that goes down this sock which seems so reminiscent of Harry's scar. Given that these socks were designed before the release of Deathly Hallows, this design reflects a pretty accurate understanding or prediction of where JK Rowling was going with her plotline.
In other knitting news: I've finished all the knitting and sewn in the ends on the shawl for Baby A. It needs blocking now before I try and work out how to best photograph the sucker.
In news from the links:
We played 9 holes of golf this morning. It was raining pretty steadily when we first got there so we sat and had a coffee until it eased off. By the time we'd played 4 holes, the sun was out, the temperature was going right up and things were getting pretty steamy. November just seems too early to be getting too many 30+ days. I scored 50 for my nine holes (par was 29) which is my best score so far. My next goal is to make par on at least one hole. I came close today, but my putt did the swing around the edge of the hole instead of going in.
