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!

Head over to Tami's Amis for more FO Friday posts!

  2. That is so super cute. How I do not also own a mini keychain sock blocker is a mystery to me. In fact, why to we not all own one? They are so super cute.

    1. Every time someone learns to knit or crochet, they should get one. :)

    1. I have a sweater key chain (I didn't make it) and it is SO CUTE! If all my keys had sweaters, I might die from the cuteness. :)
