Molly Weasley Socks
After I finished my resoleable socks, I got to thinking that even though they were fairly tall, I still had a ton of yarn left over. Now I really do accept the fact that I am not unduly endowed with height, but for the first time this has come to my advantage! With my small feet, short legs, and modest calves I figured I just might be able to squeeze out a pair of knee highs if I used a coordinating yarn for the heels and toes. And indeed it is possible, though I only had a few yards left in the end.
Yarn Suppliers: Webs and Knitting Treasures
Needles: US 1s / 2.25 mm
Pattern: cuff down, 72 st cast on/64 st after calf, and heel flap heel
I am so pleased with these. I wore them all day today, and they really stay up. Plus I think they will be perfect for extending my skirt wearing season through the fall and then wearing as an extra layer of wooly warmth in the winter.
