Lately, I've been lucky enough to have some quiet evenings to indulge in my two passions, knitting and reading. Oh, and did I mention that these indulgences have been completely guilt-free? I've been devouring novel after novel and knitting on vanilla socks with glee.
Since I caught the sock bug, I've been stalking sock patterns like crazy and started to notice a fun trend which has inspired something I'm going to call The Heroine Chronicles. I'll be knitting sock patterns named after female literary characters and do my best to chronicle my progress. First on my list is one of my favorites: Hermione from the Harry Potter series.
So far, on Ravelry at least, Hermione's Everyday Socks have been knitted over 3,600 times. If that isn't a testament to both the love of Hermione and the pattern, I don't know what is.
I'll be casting these on this weekend with my recently gifted Patons Kroy Socks FX yarn, and I'm excited to see where this chronicle takes me. I've already come across a few other sock patterns named in honor of literary heroines but if you know of any, please leave the pattern name in the comments.
