Better be … Gryffindor!
After spending many years trying not to get swept up into Harry Potter mania, once I finally read the books, I was hooked. I love to get lost in the magical world J. K. Rowling created. So when I saw the opportunity to design an HP-themed accessory, I jumped right in!
The Ascendio socks, worked from the toe up, use 2 complementary colors and slipped stitches to create an allover stair step design inspired by Hogwarts’ magical, moving staircases. As the 2 colors blend together in spots, the steps seem to disappear and reappear. Knit them in your house colors and wear them out on the Quidditch pitch or just to lounge around the common room—100% Hermione approved!
