Re: This week's post

::waving to Andromeda:: Right back at you, Slytherin pal!

I just finished your socks (YAH!!!) but am still waiting for a couple of items to come in the mail. Not sure if they will get here in time, but they were extras so if they don't make it, I can still mail out.

I've had so much fun finding or making things that related to Slytherin. It's really amazing just what is out there. And, of course, how things be re-purposed to fit a universe that they didn't come from.

I am so looking forward to your reaction when you get your package. I'm just not sure which item I'm most looking forward to your reaction to! LOL

Um .... be careful when you open parts of the package ... there's something soft and slithery in there someplace .......... I just can't quite remember where ........

Weekly Update

I honestly don't remember if I popped in to post this week, so here it goes. Not much going on. Still knitting away at the socks. It would have gone faster if I hadn't caught a cold from the oldest child. But I am not worried. So here is a big "Hello!!!!" to my Gryffindor pal. Hope your weekend is going great.

Happy Birthday Grandma Beth!

Happy Birthday and Cake and Butter Beer for Everyone! Party in the Greathall! And please no one hide any canary creams or puking pastils in the cake! But since it's Grandma's birthday I don't think we'll have any problems she is our resident trouble maker!

Weekend pass

I got a weekend pass for my birthday! See you on monday. (My 52nd b-day) Grandma


If you are having a birthday during this swap let me or your prefect know that way we can celebrate it hogwarts style !! :)

Petrificus Totalus

I feel like I have had a petrifying spell placed on me. I have yet to graft the toe of my first sock and move on to the second sock. Will someone please find a reversal spell so that I can get back to work?

organized and calm

well sort of calm as i ever get anyhow. *slightly hysterical giggle and hair tugging*
i took all of your good advise and came up with this plan to keep track of my swaps and gifts to be made and stuff like that. i made a folder and put tabs in it each swap or gift has a tab. inside each tab area are sheets that say stuff like "rules" and "spoilee" where i can put all the things i know about the swap and my swap partner. i also put in sheets for ideas (because usually i doodle out my ideas and make lists of all the possible things i COULD make till i decide on the best ones) and a sheet for patterns (where i can keep any pertinint patterns.) each tab also has a check list with a hopefull date to finish each item. in the front i printed some calendars so that i can see what hard deadlines are comming up for mailing etc. i also set up my phone to do reminders a day before the actuall mailing date. yay! i really do feel much better now and have no fear that anything will get forgotten even durring my big move to california. :0) how about a pic of my supper spiffy folder? ok.

Click Click go my needles

I have finished my shopping but am still working on the socks. I think my owl is getting anxious!


I finished my socks this weekend and started some cookie a pattern pomtomous and it is great but I still need to go shop for some sweet goodies for my buddy. I am excited. I am just past the heel on my first of the new socks and I am calling them my rainbow fish socks because they are made out of pagewood farms crayon color yarn and the pattern looks like fish scales they are more awesome then I could have expected and the pattern is easy to follow at work between calls :) aimee

Almost ready to go

The socks are done, goodies are ready, and I have a box. Now I just need to get everything in and make it to the owlery. :D

I have finally decided that I don't like the original pattern that I chose. So I have ripped everything out and am going to start over.

too much homework

i am having a very hermioneish frazzled sort of moment. i can not find my time turner either. so i am in a few swaps and they are all harry potter related :0). its like a sickness. hahaha. i am in this swap and i have everything done plus some for my spoilee, except for the socks i did decide to take them out and start over after all but i am part way through my first one (again). i do love the way the yarn is knitting up. i am doing the HSKS6 too. i am very excited about it and they are really active over there with the chatting and the games. they also have a dueling club that sounds like fun. i might have to pass on that though because i would hate to take on too much and be all stressed out. i feel like if you are hating making something because you are too busy or whatever then those vibes get in your project. if you make something you should make it with love in your heart and that gets in your project too (ugh, my hippie muggle parents DID rub off on me. sheesh). anyhow i am also in a transfiguration swap. where you take an altoids tin and transfigure it into something else. can you say "fereverto"? i have a pretty good idea for that one but havent started it either and its due by the end of the month. plus i am moving back to california from colorado by the end of the month. how do you guys keep track of all your swaps and due dates for swaps and challenges and the like? just curious. i am just feeling like i am forgetting something. i dont want to let anyone down. i like to be a great swap partner and make something really nice you know. i dont feel like i am overbooked for the swaps (i have done more than this and had no prob at all) i think it might just be the moving. can someone please make me a claming draught? *wrings hands*

Quote Quiz

so confident am I, that I've already got the next quote ...
"You gave Mr. Malfoy quite a fright"

Okay who said it, to whom, and what were they speaking about???

Quote Quiz

OK here it is: Tell me who said it, what book and when.

"First think of a person who lives in disguise,
Who deals in secrets and tells naught but lies.
Next, tell me what's always the last thing to mend,
The middle of middle and the end of the end?
And finally give me the sound often heard
During the search for a hard-to-find word.
Now string them together, and answer me this,
Which creature would you be unwilling to kiss?"

Extra virtual brownies for the answer to the riddle. Grandma

#2 is half done :)

Well, sock #2 is nearly ready to turn the heel. I'm pleased with the look of the pattern, especially for a Slytherin partner. Can't post pics, so I hope my partner will not only post pics of what she gets, but of what she sends, as well.
