Sundays with Harry

Potter that is. One of my favorite series and I hope you have had the chance to enjoy them as well 🙂 I noticed next to my bed this morning a stack of 3 books from back in the fall when I was reading almost a book a week. This stack was Harry Potter & the Prisoner of Azkaban, HP & the Goblet of Fire, and HP & the Order of the Phoenix.IMG_0991

I started rereading these back in the summer and got stuck on the Prisoner of Azkaban. I already know about the double crossing rat and I don’t want to see him escape. Again. So I stopped reading and haven’t picked it back up. I distracted myself with other books and series like the Sookie Stackhouse novels. I’ve had many a friend suggest I just skip it, but it doesn’t feel right. I’m very much someone who likes to finish things in their entirety before I can say they are finished.

This brings me to my dive into the stash.

This gorgeous skein of Striping Sock by Poste Yarn in Bravery. They are the gorgeous colors from Gryffindor. I bought this online from the Simply Socks Yarn Company. There was this gorgeous Halloween color a few years back and to make it so I had enough yarn for free shipping, I snapped up this beaut.IMG_0990

I’m not quite sure what to do with it. Initially I just think socks! I put the yarn into the Rav yarn search and looked at all the projects people have made and I just think socks. Probably just vanilla socks. Or maybe my staple ribbed top simple socks. But I think anything else wouldn’t do the stripes justice.

Anyway, what would you do with it?

  1. If not some nice plain or lightly ribbed/textured sock pattern to show off some Gryffindor pride, I’d make a fabulous pair of fingerless mitts!
