FO: Thanksgiving "Hermione's Everyday Socks"

Project: Hermione's Everyday Socks by Erica Lueder

    Needles and Yarn

    US 1 - 2.25 mm, US 1.5 - 2.5 mm

    1 skein = 400.0 yards (365.8 meters), 100 grams

    Socks are too loose. Needles might have been size US 2, not US 1.5. 
    The pattern is simple and straight forward. You can memorize the stitch texture pattern rather easily and pick up the sock after weeks of hibernating it and still know what to do.
    I chose to do a slip-stitch heel for this pair, plus a 1x1 ribbing for the cuff. That's always my go-to ribbing for sock and mitten cuffs. 

    I used yarn from a trade done years ago with Erica Lueder when I used to sell yarn. I fell in love with this colorway because it was so fall-like. I felt like this would be the perfect colorway for Thanksgiving socks.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Our 50% off all KUAS Designs pattern sale for Black Friday week starts tomorrow! I'll post the details tomorrow!
