Challenge: Geronimo Challenge & Astronomy
House: ravenclaw
Project: more socks

two completely identical socks.... in honour of the weasley boys, and of course the twins of the zodiac Gemini  Grin



Actually, I had some difficulty keeping these matching. Even through I used the same wool from the same colour batch, the variegations didn't happen in the same places (including the sudden jump to navy that I put at the heel - it ended up there naturally on the first sock which I thought was perfect, but then not on the second sock) - any experienced knitters know why that happened or how I can avoid it? I really can't work it out as I'm sure i did exactly the same thing on on both socks!

They look pretty great to me!  What sock pattern did you use?  Is the yarn dk weight?  They look so comfy and warm!

They were knitted on a circle loom, with 32 pegs. I just use a standard heel method (it came with the loom. ditto the toe method) and make the ankle/foot part as long as necessary for the intended recipient.
I used Sidar brand 'Indie' wool in tahoe 166
It's super chunky wool, which is really too chunky for that loom - it wasn't easy to knit it - but I really liked the colours of the wool so I thought I'd give it a go Smiley they have come out very dense, wearable but I am glad they will be worn in big heavy hiking boots by my brother who is a forest warden. Back to chunky for the next pair I think! It's a shame as I felt the chunky wool didn't give quite a thick enough finish and I can't find an inbetween weight.

So much great stuff guys!  I've been crazy busy, what with Hallowe'en and then I had to travel for a week so baby girl could meet her godparents and some of DH's family.  I only just got back!  I have so much crafty craziness to do in the next two weeks: finish baby's stocking so I can decorate on the 1st, make my NaKniSweMo sweater, make some more photo props for a friend, and hopefully make a Christmas wreath!

Hi debzie.  Welcome to the Craftalong!  Everyone is welcome to participate in the HPC as much or as little as they wish.  As noodle-bug says the first page has all the details about the Craftalong.  You are welcome to create crafts for any, all, or none of the classes, challenges, or detentions, as your heart desires.  There is a "header" posted in the first post of this thread, that shows how you should go about posting a project here, as well as idea prompts for every Hogwarts class, and if you scroll down a bit, you'll see other fun things like OWLs, Detentions, and Witch of the Week awards for extra-awesome craftiness.  Please feel free to PM either myself (Deputy Headmistress), or our fearless leader pinkleo, at any time if you have questions.  There are also Heads of House for Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw & Slytherin who would be happy to help you find your way around.  Cheers & welcome!  Kiss
