FO - Hermione's Everyday Socks

Ooof there's been so much rain in the UK over the past few days. I went out for my run yesterday and was literally wading through streams instead of the road I usually attempt to run on. I was soaked to the skin, my trainers were wet through. It was grim :-S


However, I now have another pair of colourful socks to keep my feet cosy so whilst I'd love the weather to warm up and the rain to reduce, at least I'll get lots of use out of my socks lol. I like these ones a lot more after a quick block, the texture of the stitch pattern looks neater. I'm looking forward to getting them on my feet :)


I used the Hermione's Everyday Socks pattern to make these but used the Fish Lips Kiss heel as I like the fit of it on my feet. The yarn is from Flamboyance yarns who are no longer trading and the colourway is called Firebird. The pattern is very easy to remember and makes a change from plain stockinette socks. Definitely one I'd use again.


I'm still working on my Blueberry Waffle socks. Another straight forward pattern and it's working nicely with the yarn. I'm hoping to get the heel done today although my knitting has slowed a bit after I took a slice out of my finger with a bread knife. It doesn't hurt weirdly enough but it's right where I have a tendancy to push the needle tip so I'm having to take a bit more care over what I'm doing. This is my first day in over a week where I don't have anything on so I'm going to enjoy chilling out with Pippin.

Linking up a bit late with Keep Calm Craft On and Yarnalong


  1. Love the striping on the heel, neat effect. I am chilling with my boys and the laundry, and we are in a 3 day rain shower event, so we are just about as soggy here!

  2. OMGosh, LOVE how these Hermiones came out. They are so cool! Damn, you go girl running in the rain. I totally use the rain as an excuse to not run. We, in the South Bay, are still waiting for El Nino to hit!

  3. I really love those blueberry waffle socks, such a gorgeous blue. And I love the pooling in your Hermione' s.

  4. Enjoy your knitting! Hope that the next time you are out you don't get so wet! xx

  5. I love your color choices for your socks. Simply gorgeous! I'm working on a pair of socks for my daughter. I'm thinking of using handspun yarn.

  6. I'm working on my second pair of Hermione socks, I love them. I'm going to have to look into the blueberry waffle pattern, it looks so comfy!

  7. Those socks are stunning, it is the one thing I have never had a go at. Rain has been a permanent fixture here this week.

  8. How funny: I sliced one of my thumbs cooking this week, too!
    Sorry about the rain. I'm not a fan. Give me snow any day.
    Those are two of my favorite sock patterns!

  9. Oh the rain this week was insane wasn't it! It flooded two of the three roads out of our village which made life interesting!! Love the socks, they've got some amazing pooling!!

  10. The blueberry waffle's are looking great! Ach, the rain...but this weekend has been beautiful. I so hope you had a gorgeous few days too. I'm so ready for Spring...We've earned it after this miserable British winter. Hope you found some knitting time too

  11. Ahhhhhhiiiiiiiii! The bread knife! Worse than the weather.

  12. I really enjoyed making the Hermione pattern too!


Thanks for visiting, I love comments :-)
