Pattern: Key Chain Sock Blocker Sock by Debbie Jennings
Yarn: Shibui Knits Sock in Kiwi and Rainy Days & Wooly Dogs Laudanum-GothSock in I'm a Very Neat Monster
Needles: US 1
I've had a naked sock-blocker key chain for a few years now. I got it for Christmas from my friend Amy. I've intended to knit the little sock for it for...ever! Finally, the Harry Potter Knitting and Crochet House Cup offered me just the incentive I needed. Slytherin was down in Quidditch and the more people who knitted or crocheted mini socks, the more points we earned! I whipped out some yarn and went to work.
It only took a tiny bit of yarn. I had a tiny little ball of Shibui Knits Sock that I thought would be just enough for one sock. I think I could make another! The two-toned sock you may recognize from my Dexter Socks. I thought the two-toned sock would be my favorite, but I think it's the green one. They are both incredibly cute! John thinks so too. I may need to get him a key chain. :)
Slytherin tied Hufflepuff for first place and now I have two socks for my once long-naked key chain (and there will be more!). Win-win!
