Finished Hufflepuff Socks!

I finished the pair of socks for my Hogwarts Sock Swap pal. The second sock seemed to zoom off the needles even more quickly than the first. I finished it last night (and have already started on the second Monkey sock for my Sockapalooza 4 pal). I really love these socks and part of me doesn't want to send them away.

Finished Hufflepuff Socks!

The yarn used was KnitPicks Palette. Needles are US 2. Basic cuff-down sock pattern with a short-row heel (my first cuff-down one!). I devised the stripe pattern myself and carried the yarn along the back so that there weren't many ends to weave in.

Finished Hufflepuff socks!

I used less than one skein of each color to complete the pair. The socks are very cozy and I really hope my pal likes them.
