Goblet of Fire

Owl Post made a delivery last week! I eagerly opened up the box from my Hogwarts Sock Swap pal Tanya to find several packages wrapped in purple and green, natch. These colors have nothing to do with Hogwarts, but happen to be one of my favorite color combinations. Which to open first??


Lets try the purple bag…


Goblet of Fire “First Task” socks in Gryffindor colors, a little sachet, ChiaGoo DPNs (yay!), and emergency sock yarn “for when you aren’t quick enough.”


The little bag and the stitch markers are gorgeous! (The maroon beads look much darker than they really are.)


In another bundle, I found some Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans (I dared to taste one without looking at the flavor chart, it turned out to be Soap! Blech!), cinnamon candies “to breathe a little fire,” and a Gummi Pet Rat (Scabbers anyone?).


The lavender dragon on this notebook cover is perfectly accessorized with her lime green socks. Tanya also gave me my very own mini sock blocker keychain!


There was one last thing in the box… a skein of TOFUtsies in a blue-purple colorway! I’ve long wanted to try this yarn.


The socks? They fit perfectly!


And I absolutely love them!


Thank you Tanya for the wonderful dragon-themed package! : )

    Hey – those socks are a tad “Gopher-ish” in their coloring, aren’t they?
