Wet owl has arrrived

I just got my Goblet of Fire yarn...yay! Verrrry preeetty! I love the colors, perfect saturation hues.

I'm a little confused about the 'extra'....are they horns to wear? Dragon teeth? *is puzzled*

Hope everyone's having a nice holiday time - we're getting rained on at the moment, and we're supposed to get rain/ice/snow tomorrow night. Yech. Sounds like knitting weather to me.

Different Sockitechture for POA socks?

Hello! I'm up this early 'cause I can't stop thinking about socks! XD

I'm nearly done my last pair of Christmas present socks (just gotta' BO the other side of the cuffs and sew in about.... 9 ends total on all the gifts- not bad, really) and I've been thinking for a while about how I want to work these Sirius socks.

I was very lucky to pick up Cat Bhordi's book at the end last month, and have been wanting to cast on just about anything from that book. I'm currently working on the little sky learning sock, which will be my first ever cuff-down sock.

Considering that this particular sock has a pattern down the side, I'd have to re-distribute the stitches on my circs to get the pattern just right, and yadda, yadda, yadda. That in and of itself almost seems intimidating, as I've never had to do that before.

So, the end question is this: do I modify Bartholemew's Tantalizing Socks with the Sirius pattern? Or not? (The pads at the bottom of the sock confuzzled me at first- I didn't realize they went on the bottom!) Thanks! :D

How is everyone doing?

I have one of the Sirius Black socks done and the 2nd one is on row 45 of the leg chart. My DD loves these socks and has claimed them for herself. They are sooooo soft!!! I hope to have them done by next weekend. However they are going in the box with her Christmas PJ's!

Have a great weekend & btw I can't wait for this months owl!
