Harry Potter Socks - Fawkes

I started to obsess about Harry Potter around last Wednesday. I spent Thursday night looking at sock patterns, and I downloaded the 3 off of Socktopia as well as Horcrux. I then raided the stash for "proper" colors.

I really wanted to work on a pair when I was waiting at Barnes & Noble. So, around 6pm Friday night I cast on for Fawkes. I worked on it for about 45 minutes during the "Midnight Magic" wait. I didn't work on them again until Saturday night, after I finished the book. Surprisingly, I finished them last night.

Fawkes - Lorna's Laces Bittersweet

Here is some detail....

Fawkes - detail

It's a little more red and orange in person than what it looks like on my computer. I wish I had had Lorna's Laces Flame or Claudia's Poppies, but I was determined to use stash.

One down, several more to go.

Your FAWKES look great! I am knitting them right now in the LL Flame colorway. Isn't it a fun pattern? Do you plan on knitting Nanini and Bellatrix?
