7 of Hearts & Ravenclaw Socks

See I did finish some stuff. Now I am working on some cotton blend socks.

This first pair decided that it would rather be a wedding gift for my sister than a Christmas gift for my mother. Who am I to stand in its way. The significance of the name comes from the fact that she is getting married on 7-7-07.
Yarn: Art Yarns Supermerino
Needles: US Size 3s
Pattern: Seven of Hearts
Marathon Yardage: 210 yards
Total Mileage: 1.78

I am currently looking for test knitters for Seven of Hearts. I have the pattern written out for these already. They are fast and relatively simple.

Next up the Ravenclaw socks:
Yarn: Gems Merino Fingering Weight in sandalwood and french blue
Supplier: kpixie
Needles: US Size 1s
Marathon Yardage: 305
Total Mileage:1.96

These are relatively simple, but I think they would make excellent quiddich socks or just socks to wear under your robes in drafty hallways and classrooms. Now to finish up the last touches on my package.

Really nice 7 of Hearts socks. I would volunteer as a test knitter if you wanted a size 10, high arch foot! I usually have to make the heel flap longer, but your heel construction looks interesting and possibly quite forgiving.
