Socks

I've nicked a load of stuff from Mugglenet here. Sorry guys, it's just really good important stuff. I won't do it again!

Book 1

  • We learn that, in the past, the Dursleys have given Harry an old pair of Uncle Vernon's socks for his birthday.
  • The very first time we meet Harry he is in his cupboard looking for socks.
  • Dumbledore tells Harry that in the Mirror of Erised he sees himself holding a pair of thick, woollen socks.

    Book 2

  • At The Burrow, Mrs. Weasley is "fussing over the state of his socks."
  • And also at The Burrow: "Mrs. Weasley dashed about in a bad mood looking for spare socks"
  • When Dobby explains to Harry that, for a house elf, clothes means freedom, he says: "The family is careful not to pass Dobby even a sock, sir"
  • Harry tricks Lucius into giving Dobby Harry's sock.

    Book 3

  • Harry uses Uncle Vernon's old socks to cover his Sneakoscope: "I never wear those socks if I can help it."

  • On Christmas morning, Harry gives Uncle Vernon's "foul," "mustard-yellow," and "extra knobbly" socks to Dobby.
  • Ron gives Dobby an unwanted violet pair he got from his mum. Dobby is ecstatic. Ron (looking embarassed) says: "They're only socks..."
  • Dobby gives Harry a pair of socks; one red, with broomsticks, the other green with Snitches, that he knitted himself.
  • Harry resolves to buy Dobby "a pair of socks for every day of the year."
  • On the morning of the first task, Harry dressed so inattentively that it was a while before he realized he was trying to pull his hat onto his foot instead of his sock.
  • While Hermione is arguing with Hagrid about S.P.E.W, Hagrid is putting on socks.
  • Harry and Ron have fun in Hogsmeade picking out strange-looking socks for Dobby including "a pair patterned with flashing gold and silver stars and another that screamed loudly when they became too smelly."
