Gryffindor Digitessa

Pattern is La Digitessa by Yarnissima. I've finished half the first sock isn't it lovely? The yarn is by crazy for dyeing colorway Gryffindor. You may remember I got this yarn and pattern from my pal in the Hogwarts Sock Kit Swap 5. I'm really enjoying this pattern and the triangular toe up gusset is amazing. Thank you Yarnissima for this construction method.

Next Exchange

hello -- I was wondering if there has been any word on if there will be a 5th year sign up soon??

I know it was going to wait until after the Holidays -- um, I guess I'm getting kind of anxious as I have bought plenty of yarn for dying this time ;-D

Okay I think I can wait for the reply .... I think .... well maybe ....

sigh ....

oh look a new spell!


Ewwwww .... it must have been on of Lockhart's left-overs .... oh geez ....

what color is that?

Off to find a reversal spell ...

maybe an antidote ...

oooooooh ...

It came!!

So after many issues thanks to the pranksters in Gryffindor, ;;points at the guilty parties:: you know who you are, my package from Belladonna Boomslang arrived on Sunday by owl, good thing that the owl was sent back before the snow started to come down!

You can find pictures of the faboo package she sent me with pictures and explanation of the uber-geeky (geek is a good thing, seriously!) socks Bella designed for me on my blog. Thank you Bella don't worry about it being late, I didn't mind waiting.

Better photo

Okay I had already posted a photo about the sock my partner, Queen Frysia of Gryffindor aka Maran, sent me but played with the photo a little bit so they are easier to see ... they are really comfy -- i tend to wear them everywhere these days (socks from partner of HSS2 are my 'house socks' to keep my totsie's warm).Same photo as before but I used my Corel Photo-Paint to clean it up a bit ... dang digital camera. The color is quite nicer than the photo gives it credit for.

I found my package today! It had probably arrived sometime last week, but apparently Erol was sent and he has very bad aim. The package was found on the ground beside my deck. I wouldn't have noticed it there if I hadn't been hanging Christmas lights today. The box was soggy from snow and rain but the contents inside were fine. I love the socks! They are perfect Gryffindor socks and they fit wonderfully. I also got some great sock yarn that I can't wait to knit into my second pair of socks! There are two sets of needles, a mini sock, some Harry Potter gift bags and some yummy DQ chap stick! What a great package! Thank you Head Mistress! Thank you for adopting me when my partner decided to drop out! Thank you for taking the time to make an extra package and for being patient with me with my slowness and imperfect first socks. I hope you enjoy your package. I love mine :)

Thank You to our head mistress and

every one who made this a GREAT! swap

Big thank you to Celestina Crookshanks

Sorry it took so long to post about my package from Celestina Crookshanks. She sent me a wonderful package with Sees Pumpkin Spice Suckers, nuts, chocolates, yarn from Sunshine Yarns, a journal, fabulous socks (they fit perfectly and I love the color and pattern), sock pattern ( can't wait to try) and rosewood knitting needles. I received my package 10/23/08. I have been working a lot of hours and didn't have time to post.

Celestina was a wonderful partner. Sorry there are no pictures, but I couldn't find the cable to my camera after I took the pictures. I will post them if I find the cable in the next week.

Thanks again Celestina for being a great swap partner.

Next swap is when?

I'm going to presume, considering the time of year and all, that we can look forward to the next swap in the new year. Yes?

Re: From Slytherin to Gryffindor

Oh, I'm so glad you took pictures and posted them!! I *did* take pictures .... but neither my husband nor I can figure out where the devil he PUT them!! We've found every other picture we have on this muggle device, I swear, we've found 'em all TWICE! But NOT the pictures I took of my package!

I love the colors, and the pattern is really neat. You say that's a Pygmy Puff, huh? Would have sworn it was an owl! It's up among my other stuffed friends and seems to be quite happy there.

Great job Slythrin! You guys won the house cup!!!! Send me an email by the end of the week and let me know what colors that you would like your yarn!!!!


Thanking Head Boys/Girls & Prefects

Is there a very polite way of saying thank you to our headboys/girls & prefects?

I think they deserve a little something special for all the work they did ... making quizzes, tracking postings, gathering house points, helping with any little matters that may have popped up that we don't know about ...

A little something for the Head Mistress would be great too!

Whatcha all think?
