Dumbledore socks


I finished these socks just before Mother's Day. Just took a long time to post the pic. The two socks don't quite match. There is a slight pattern that isn't visible in the pic. And they are made of acrylic, I won't use acrylic to make socks. To hard and rough. I call them Dumbledore socks because in Book one Sorcerers Stone, Dumbledore said that the one thing he wanted the most was socks.

Now onto my shawl.

Are the whole socks acrylic, or just the cuffs?

w/o labels to verify, but utilizing my memory bank of how long the yarns have been stash. I'd say yes all acrylic from the 80's- except the eyelash. That was a recent thrift store find.

Yarn from the 80s...

The thought of it is quite scary!
