Fortuna Major

While I’ve spent the last month or so packing and moving and settling, I’ve not been idle. Or rather, I’ve not allowed other people to be idle.

I’ve had people testing my latest sock pattern. It’s so easy to miss potential issues either by thinking you’ve done a thing (and haven’t) or by assuming the instructions make sense because you know what you mean. Testing is a way of catching those problems.

All the testing has been done, the wrinkles have been (hopefully) ironed out and it is available on Ravelry

Fortuna Major is the first password of The Prisoner of Azkaban. Harry and his friends are back at Hogwarts for a new year and start new classes – Divination and Care of Magical Creatures.

The main panel of the sock is a feather motif inspired by Buckbeak, the hippogriff Harry meets in his very first Care of Magical Creatures class. The side panels are tendrils of steam that rise from the cups of tea essential for tasseomancy or the reading of tea leaves.

I’m pleased with the result and would like to thank Constance, Marit and Nadia for their time and feedback as my test knitters.
