Last week I bemoaned the lack of truly fabulous, Dumbledore-inspired sock patterns on Ravelry.
Yesterday I went to a local boutique that’s closing to use up a gift certificate while it was still in business, and found these:
Now THESE are socks worthy of the great and fabulous Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore.
It’s actually two pairs of socks; I just wore one of each to double the fabulousity (and in homage of Dobby). The colors didn’t come out quite as well as I would have liked (they should be warmer overall) but I think we can all agree that they are Dumble-worthy. And just in case you too would like some faboo socks, you can find them (and many other sparkly, brightly-colored things) in Laurel Burch’s online store.
The next segment of Ursa Minor will be up later, after my weekly teens-and-telescopes adventure. Not that I’m really looking forward to it in this weather, but hopefully the fun will outweigh the heatstroke…
