If you are looking for a really intense DIY project and also consider yourself to be a big fan of Harry Potter, this sock holder will pique your interest and probably make you cry. Inspired by Dobby the house elf, this mismatched sock line is a place to post socks without a pair. The lost sock holder consists of a line with clothes pins to attach the left behind hosiery and a tear-jerker of a placard reading 'Save Dobby.'

For those who don't know, house elves are like slaves in the world of Harry Potter and must be presented with clothes to be freed. In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry tricks Dobby's master into freeing him by hiding his own dirty sock in a book. Dobby then accumulates an impressive collection of mismatched socks throughout the remainder of the series before his untimely demise.
