FO Friday..........Hermione's Everyday Socks.

I hope you have all had a good week, I'm back today to show you what I've been knitting over the last week.

There's a group on Ravelry called A Yarn Loving Mama, they are having a KAL this month and the pattern was for Hermione's Everyday Socks which is a free pattern.

I joined the KAL quite late through the month but I wanted to get them finished quick as they were for a friend's birthday. The pattern is worked from the cuff down but since I've discovered  toe up, I worked from toe up which was easy enough to do with this pattern and did short row heel and toe.

My friend, Pinda, is always cold whatever the weather so I've knitted them in Artesano 100% angora, which is so soft to the touch and very warm. I will recommend that she wears them as bed socks or when she's snuggled on the sofa, she could wear them for everyday use but been angora they won't be as hard wearing as something with a nylon blend.

I gave them to her yesterday and she was absolutely thrilled with them, I bet she wore them for bed, last night!!!!

If you'd like to see more FO's from other people, check out Tami's blog.

Have a great weekend.

I love that pattern; I made mine in purple, too. I've never made socks out of 100% angora, though, luscious!
