I like Harry Potter. I wear socks. Hmmm...

So, you know, I'm not much of a joiner, but something made me--no, compelled me to join the Hogwarts Sock/Scarf Knit Swap 3 (say that three times fast) or HSKS3 for short. I figured it would inspire me to actually finish a pair of socks, and I like meeting people and getting packages. I have not heard from my prefect, or anyone else for that matter, about who my swap mates are, but I don't want to lose points for my house--Hufflepuff--so I'm including in this post:

the swap logomy house logo

and my answers to the questionnaire.
1. What Hogwarts house have you been sorted into? Hufflepuff
2. List your favorite double-point needle brands, including size and length. Or would you prefer circulars? I really like the Knit Picks needles, any sock size and no longer than 6" please; or the Bryson flexible needles. I tend to be a tight knitter and my bamboo needles are all getting warped.
3. Would you like to try a new brand needle? If so, which brand? Size? Length? I'm so easy to please. Anything would be great.
4. If you are a RAVENCLAW, do you prefer the colors in the film or the book? Do you have a strong preference? does not apply
5. Do you have any allergies? Yarn allergies? Just angora and camel, but they're not exactly sock yarns.
6. If you are swapping scarves - what is your desired length for the pattern? This will help your partner find the pattern that is just right for you and buy yarn accordingly. Socks for me.
Please don't take points away from Hufflepuff because the logo is not in my sidebar. My blog template was custom-made and I don't know how to add anything without ruining it. (and my designer is far too busy for me to burden with the task)

I am really hoping to hear from someone soon so I can go shopping this weekend and get started on the kit.

Wilikers! It's those socks I wanted way back in Calgon Alley! Who did this? Who could it be? Was it... McCormick Softcastle? Wink Wink, Harry, Wink Wink.

That was Softcastle McCormick, and don't you forget it.

This is a knitting thing. You wouldn't understand.

Laurie - Have you checked you spam filter box? I sent your swap partner details out as soon as I had them, (about 12 midnight Weds). I sent them to your gmail address. I know people have had problems with spam filters. I'm so sorry I haven't picked this up earlier but just assumed you had everything OK as I hadn't heard from you. I shall re-send the email now but if you dont receive it, please email me asap.

And I hope Nacho gets better soon.

Take care
Adele - Hufflepuff Prefect

(I've also sent 2 emails out to all the Hufflepuffs which I assume you haven't received either? Oh dear!)
