Potholder Mania

Back in May, it was potholders and hotpads all the time, as I worked feverishly to finish the set of five I needed for this swap. Even though I dithered about it at first, I couldn’t resist joining Hot Pads! And Potholders – The Swap. We had to crochet five potholders, and we could use any [...]

Two and a half

That’s how many pairs of socks I knit while writing/testing this pattern! You’ve already seen the green and gray pair I knit for my Hogwarts secret pal last year. Here’s a better picture of the stitch pattern that I didn’t show you at that time. Amelia’s socks were size Medium.

Slytherin Socks

It took a long time but I finally finished the socks for Amelia, my Hogwarts Sock Swap TWO pal. We had exchanged emails at the beginning of the swap where she indicated that, because she received a pair of Gryffindor socks in the previous swap, she was open to receiving a pair of socks [...]

Three old ladies knit the socks of death

Today’s post title is courtesy of Rick Riordan’s The Lightning Thief. I thought this chapter heading was too cute not to use. (The book is first in a series about a boy’s modern-day adventures with the Olympian gods, demigods, creatures, and monsters. If you are familiar with Greek and Roman mythology, it’s easy to [...]

Hogwarts SS2 Questionnaire

We’re in the middle of Harry Potter mania with the newly-released movie and the soon-to-be-released final volume. I enjoyed the Hogwarts Sock Swap and after much deliberation decided to sign up again for Hogwarts Sock SwapTWO.

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??
