Slytherin Socks in progress!

It's been quiet around here!!

I cast on the Heir of Slytherin socks right after Christmas.
Heir of Slytherin socks

Yes, I'm behind, but OCD enough that I will get ALL of them knit, and I will do it in order!

Not a bad sock, overall. I was in doubt if the construction would work. Starting the increases 3 inches past the toe? It seemed like either the foot would be way too short or way too big around, but, miraculously, it's turned out to be exactly the right length and width! I guess the key words here are "Trust the pattern", because it totally worked!

Even though you can't see from the picture, I'm knitting both socks at the same time. It's been a challenge, because of the shifting that has to happen before and after the heel, but now that I'm on the leg, it's going well.

I'm not sure what I think of the pink and purple striping, but I'll certainly keep going with it!

This sock makes me excited to try some of the other Cat Bordhi constructions!!

Ooooh! Is that the cable coriolis pattern that calbeguy did on ravelry? (or similar to it?)

I'm going to be working my POA socks at the same time using both carrie's pattern and the Bart's Tantalizing socks pattern.

What's your username on ravelry? I'm graphitequill. I'd love to friend you! (:
