Need a good spell

For knitting more than one project at once. Like maybe, um... six. In my defense they are not all socks. Only four of them. The other two are fingerless gloves and a summer top that I probably won't finish before summers end. It's like knitting socks in the summertime when it's too hot to wear anything on your feet.

Behind in my homework

I just realized that I am about to fall behind in my homework. Can't forget to post every week- ack! I know it's Wednesday, but the week goes fast.
What have I been doing instead of my homework? Knitting of course! Socks, socks and more socks.

Holy Hippogriffs!

I got my amazing, awesome, extra supercool package from Patonga. Holy hippogriffs did she ever out do herself! Best kit nominations are in order!

See, I was good. I took pictures before I tore it apart. In the box.
Fresh out of the box- still wrapped up.
Everything out for you to see. Check out the Blood Pops and Chocolate Frogs! I will share them with my underage wizards. I can never find any Honeydukes sweets in my Muggle village.
The best knitting bag ever! The fabric is really cool knitting fabric. The whole bag is great, I can fit loads of stuff in it and it's so well made. I love it!
Will you look at that. Two sets of Knit Picks Harmony dpns- yay! A handturned wpi tool in a really lovely wood, some great owl stitch markers that Patonga made, 4 oz of Maine Woods wool blend roving in perfect Slytherin-y colors. Of course the best part- the yarn. Made by Patonga herself. I love her yarn!
The Merope sock pattern. Could she have picked a more perfect one for a Slytherin? It will be great in the yarn she sent me. There is a really cute owl pendant on top of my very own Defense Against The Dark Arts notebook! The book is so awesome, once again the perfect choice. And see that awesome green spotted coffee mug? It's handmade! It's also a really great size for my hands to hold, and the spots are great. Patonga has been spying on me- she knows I have coffee or cocoa every morning!
Close up of the most perfect Slytherin sock yarn ever! With the owl stitch markers.
Wow, did I ever get spoiled. What an amazing, thoughtful, amazing, perfect, amazing package. Thank you so much Patonga. You took such time and care putting this together I hardly know what to say. I truly love everything. I am a very lucky witch to have had you as my partner. Thank you very much.


Is not good for me. The Muggle post says that my partners package made it to her village, so I hope she got it. Waiting always kills me. Will she like it or not??? Ahhh! I have no idea if my Slytherin mini sock partner has her owl either. On Saturday I came home to a message from my Muggle postman that I have a package they tried to deliver but I was not home. Now I have to go pick it up- I wonder what it is...

03 July, 2008

Owls Away!

I sent off two priority owls yesterday. One to my Slytherin mini sock partner, the other to my HSKS5 partner. I hope they make it alright!

02 July, 2008


Slytherin House decided to have a mini sock swap amongst the house members. I got my package just the other day. It came from Arabella Moody- check it out.

Not one but two mini socks in Slytherin colors. Some size 0 dpns for mini sock knitting and a bunch of mini skeins of yarn to knit mini socks from. One of the yarns she spun herself and I think two of them are yarns that she dyed herself! Arabella pays attention in Potions- they are lovely.
Thanks a bunch Arabella!

30 June, 2008

Am I Done Or Not?

I finished my pals knitted item, and then made her another one. I've been going through the things I have for her package. I thought I was done, but maybe not. I read her blog this morning and now I have a bunch of ideas for more stuff to tuck in there. Decisions, decisions...

25 June, 2008

Knitting Spell Mastered

I think I have finally mastered a knitting spell for a knitted surprise for Ophelia. I'm sure it's not what she will be expecting, but I think that will be good. I'm working on getting all the little details for her package ready for my owl to deliver. I do hope he makes the trip alright, he will be flying to someplace terribly hot. I'm sure Ophelia will perk him back up before sending him off to fly home.

I really must get working on my mini sock for my Slytherin mini swap pal. I still have to pick the yarn... I do have some treats for her though!

Why Harry, Ron and Hermione in Hagids giant pumpkin patch? Just because I like it. The huge pumpkins are awesome, I love Hagrid, and POA is my favorite of the books and movies. I thought the post deserved a picture.

Need A New Spell

I have frogged the project I started for my parnter. I'll have to go digging through my spell books to find another idea. I hope it doesn't take me too long to figure it out!

12 June, 2008

I Started

I finally got started on my project fo rmy swap partner yesterday. I don't know if I like it, so I might end up starting over or doing something totally different. Perhaps I'll discover what I'm supposed to do in Divination, I'll go read some tea leaves or something.

09 June, 2008


Homework for Professor Hagrid. The Slytherins and Hufflepuffs have care of Magical Creatures together this term. So far it's gone rather well, no trips to the hospital wing anyway. We're supposed to write six inches on a magical creature we have spent time with, or one we would like to spend time with and why. Here's my creature:

The Kneazle

My great grandmother Broomtwigs had a kneazle. I don't know how long kneazles are supposed to live, but I think he was old when I met him and he's still alive and prowling about. Orion kept my great grandmother company for many years, poor thing he had to put up with Muggles thinking he was an ordinary cat all the time. Now Orion lives with my family. His favorite spot is in my knitting basket, where he can see both the front and back doors. Kneazles are funny that way, always wanting to know what's going on. He has been known to bite at the ankles and tear the pants of door to door salesman. Such a sweet boy. Oddly enough Orion has no interest in the men in the family, he ignores them and would be perfectly happy without them around. He has always been close to the women, and has been terribly useful to us, as well as loyal. He's caught a thief under an invisibility cloak, and digs his claws into the back of those who are lying. He does have one talent that is rather peculiar, even in Kneazles who are terribly smart. I am the only witch in the family who knits. Orion has the ability to detect when I have made a mistake in my work, he sits on my lap and bites my yarn to let me know. He has saved many socks and jumpers from the frog pond. Perhaps he has learned about knitting to have me avoid the frog pond. He eats them every chance he gets and probably would prefer I didn't know about it.

05 June, 2008

Ugh- homework

The Hufflepuffs and Slytherins have been taking Care of Magical Creatures together this year, so this assignment is for both Houses to complete.
Professor Hagrid has asked for 6 inches of parchment (say 200 words) about a personal experience you've had with a magical creature (outside of Hogwarts), or about the magical creature you'd most like to have as a pet. Of course if you chose the latter option, you should write about why you'd like to have such a creature as a pet, but also the potential problems of domesticating that magical creature.A listing of Magical Creatures can be found in your textbook, Fantastic

Yuck, I hate writing reports. I wonder whose idea this really was because I know Professor Hagrid would never assign this on his own.

So I guess I'll get to thinking about what to write about, but I really don't want to. I far prefer the other homework assignments we've had so far this term.

03 June, 2008

Need to get to work

I have everything for my swap partners package. All of the delivery owls have arrived. They even all made it off again without being fed any Weasley products by my own owl, who seems to have a thing for them now. She's definitely a Slytherin-y owl:)
All I have to do for my partners package is to make her something. She says she doesn't care what kind of something. I have no idea what I'm going to do, but I'm sure I'll some up with something. Perhaps a trip to the library is in order...

Partners Assigned

Yay! I received an owl from Hogwarts telling me about myHSKS5 partners for this term. I will be creating a kit for a Gryffindor, a little ironic since that's my former house. I've already done some shopping by owl post, I can't wait until they arrive! I still have to decide what handmade item to include in the package. It's always hard to knit for a knitter.

I'm so excited for start of term. It looks like we have a least one new professor this time, he looks very interesting...

Let the games begin!

06 May, 2008

It's That Time Again

I gave in and signed myself up for HSKS5. This time around I am a Slytherin! The headmistress decided to limit the number of students per house this term so the numbers would be more even, so some of us needed to switch houses. Well, having been a Gryffindor for a goosd long time I decided to transfer to Slytherin. I've never been a Slytherin before, but I did have a Slytherin partner for HSS3. It'll be fun. OK, I decided on which house I would switch to because I like green:) No need for any truth potions! There are loads of good Slytherins. All I have to say is: GO DA!!!!

A Very Tired Owl

Holy cats! A very tired owl landed on my doorstep yesterday carrying my package from my HSS3 pal Mafalda Bagman. Anne is her Muggle name, and she's from Finland. No wonder that owl is tired! Her owl is resting in the cage with mine, I'll feed him lots of owl treats and water before he takes off on his return trip.
Oh wow, did I get spoiled! Thank you so much for everything! Anne sent me an awesome package despite many problems she went through last term. She was sick, she moved twice, the list goes on. It makes me feel even more special that she took the time to put together such a great, thoughtful package when she was so busy.

So check out the Hogwarts goodness:

My super cool Gryffindor socks! She designed the pattern herself. There are all kinds of cool details to them. They have an owl feathers pattern on them. how cool is that?
A bit closer up- you can see the stitch detail better.
They fit perfectly! I'm so happy. I put them on yesterday and didn't take them off until bed time. I love them!
Here's the box as I opened it. I'm so proud that I managed to get a picture before the excitement got the better of me.
Here's everything all spread out- the socks are peeking through the bottom corner.
A close up of the kitty approved package (see that white furry thing behind the bag of candy)
You see candy chosen because of its Gryffindor colored wrappers, a package of really cute napkins that match the box everything came in, some really nice Pony dpns 3.0mm size, four chocolate bars (yummy), a children's book from Finland. My poor stitch markers were snatched by Death Eaters! But she got them back, along with the tin box they put them in- they're so pretty, Gryffindor colors of course. There's a pretty angel bookmark- to protect my reading! The sweet letter she wrote me is tucked in there too.
I got a wonderful skein of Opal sock yarn in a pretty heathery-green color. I think it's a wool/bamboo blend. Since I don't speak or read any of the languages on the ball band I could be totally wrong, but I know it's wool. There are four post cards. One is a post card of the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Finnish book cover- cool! Two postcards from her beautiful home town. Everything is covered in snow on the cards, but she assures me that it is Spring there now and the snow is nearly gone. The last post card is of a Moomin character, from what I understand Moomin is a very popular author. You can also see the children's book she sent me- great illustrations of cars and boats. I love it and so do my kids.
A closer up shot of some of my goodies. The post cards, book mark, stitch markers, and Death Eater tin.
Thank you so much for everything Anne! I love it all!

11 April, 2008

I got an owl from my HSKS4 partner Olive Bladvak yesterday. Marty the owl arrived during like a rather large spring snow storm, he was tired tired after his flight from Okinawa, Japan! I let him rest and gave him some owl treats before he insisted on taking flight to return to Olive. I am so spoiled! The box was a little wet from the snow, but nothing inside was harmed. The box was packed with so many knitters wizarding treats I didn't know what to look at first! A good bit of the treats are from Japan, so there was a lot of stuff that I have never seen and never would have seen if she hadn't sent them to me. Everything was all done up in Gryffindor colors with ribbons and labels- so creative and fun! Check out all of my Gryffindor goodies:

There's the whole lot of it together. Look at all the time she took wrapping everything up and making it all look wonderful.
Another shot at all the wrapped up goodness.
She sent me two sock spells, a pair of bamboo needles from Japan, Knit Picks Harmony dpns in the 2.5mm size, and some really great yarn. The yarn is hand painted 100% Merino by All the Pretty Fibers in the Indian Summer colorway. Perfect Gryffindor yarn, and it is also the perfect yarn for the Firestarter sock spell- fitting for a Gryffindor. I didn't have any 2.5mm dpns, so they are just the needles I needed!
Here are some non-knitting goodies. Look at all those sweet little tea cups and mugs from Japan- how cool are they? Each one was wrapped in gold tissue paper and tied with a scarlet and gold ribbon with a label telling me where it was from or what it was for. The mug in the middle was filled with tea for Potions. The red cup is filled with assorted candies from Honeydukes International. The flowered cup has lemon (gold) and cola (red) Gryffindor Goodies. I can't believe that nothing was broken on the long trip, Marty really is a talented owl!
These were tied up with a ribbon that said "Imports from a wizarding village in Asia" Three sets of fancy chopsticks- all very pretty. Two skeins of Gryffindor colored yarn form Japan. I have no idea what fiber it is for sure or anything, the only thing on the labels that's in English is "Space Dyde Knitting Yarn" yes, spelled just like that. I need a spell or charm that will let me read in Japanese for a little while! The chopsticks are great and I love the yarn.
Some treats from a Japanese wizarding village I imagine. Broomstick Snacks, Chocolate Wands, and some really cute little suckers in the shape of cows. I have shared all of my treats and candies with the underage wizards in the house, but not all of them. I'm keeping some for myself! Maybe if I magically lock my trunk they won't find them...
Remember that cute yellow box with the fabric to hold it closed? It's really cool. There are three different sections to put things in. I opened the top and found some darning needles (how did she know I misplace mine a lot?) under that I found a compartment with a box of Gryffindor colored paper clips, and under there I found some beautiful beaded stitch markers in a little pouch.
These four cards came in a package marked "Owl Post" I suspect Olive made them herself- the owl on one of the cards matches the owls that were stamped onto the box all of this came in. Each card is different and they are really well done. Love them!
Last but not least the bag Olive made me. It's big enough that everything in the package was in the bag when I pulled it out of the box, so it's going to be great for keeping knitting in. The fabrics are really great. Not only are they perfect Gryffindor colors, but check out the print on that red- it's fireworks. They remind me of sparks shooting from wands! I love this bag.
Here's the inside. More cool fabric and a great little pocket.
Thank you so much Olive! I couldn't have possibly asked for a better or more fun swap package. Everything is just wonderful. You did a brilliant job on your first swap! I feel so spoiled, it was like Christmas for this knitting Harry Potter geek!
Thank you!!!!

02 April, 2008

Mischief Managed

Now I can rest easy. Both my HSKS4 and HSS3 partners have recieved their owls. Unless they're telling me stories they liked everything too. I was most concerned about my HSS3 partners package. It had to get all the way to Finland! Then I didn't know what would be silly to send or if some things would be good because she couldn't get them there. The spring IK (Muggle knitting magazine) was evidently a good choice. All was well recieved though, and the socks and wrist warmers I knit her actually fit. Yay!

24 March, 2008

Owls Away!

I'm ready to send off the owl with my HSS3 partners package today. It will have to fly overseas so I chose a particularly strong one. I sure hope my Slytherin pal likes everything!

19 March, 2008

-Grimmauld Place
-Luna Lovegood
-Dolores Umbridge
-Extendable Ears

That was a tricky one, good thing Gryffindors are rather clever! Number three was particularly difficult due to a spelling error, but it all worked out. I can't believe it's nearly the end of term. I bet the owls really start flying now!

The Owl Made It!

My Ravenclaw (HSKS4) partner has her owl! She says she likes everything I sent her, even the special Luna-esque stitch markers. There's nothing better than knowing that your partner likes what you sent to them :)

In HSS3 news... My socks are all finished. I have to check through my collection of treats for my Slytherin pal, but I'm pretty sure that I'm ready to send her package by owl post too. I wonder what types of owls do overseas deliveries?

05 March, 2008

Owl Post- for real!

I sent these owls off to my HSKS4 partner yesterday afternoon. They don't have too far to fly so they should be there by the end of the week or sooner. I can't wait until she gets it, I hope she likes everything!
