Harry ran down the dark corridor. He caught up with them at the top of the stairs. "Mr. Malfoy," he gasped, skidding to a halt, "I've got something for you --" And he forced the smelly sock into Lucius Malfoy's hand. "What the --?" Mr. Malfoy ripped the sock off the diary, threw it aside, then looked furiously from the ruined book to Harry. You'll meet the same sticky end as your parents one of these days, Harry Potter," he said softly. "They were meddlesome fools, too. He turned to go. "Come, Dobby. I said, come." But Dobby didn't move. He was holding up Harry's disgusting, slimy sock, and looking at it as though it were a priceless treasure. "Master has given a sock," said the elf in wonderment. "Master gave it to Dobby." "What's that?" spat Mr. Malfoy. "What did you say?" "Got a sock," said Dobby in disbelief. "Master threw it, and Dobby caught it, and Dobby – Dobby is free."

Description: This was another yarn I had to think about long and hard. In the end I chose to use dark grey and black for the corridor the scene takes place in, with added green and white for Malfoy’s Slytherin heritage and allegiance. I spun in grey cotton fabric strips to represent Dobby’s old pillowcase, sock charms, and the same matte green beads I used for Dobby’s eyes in the very first yarn of this advent calendar.
