HSKS6 Pals

Ack! Somehow I just realized that I have not yet mentioned much about my pals for this term. This round I get to spoil another Ravenclaw of the name Molly Crookshanks. I am really excited about my package for her, but I am still pulling together final details. I am also lucky enough to have Pandora Phelps of Gryffindor for a pal, who is totally an inspiration as far as swap pals go. She is so good about checking in with me, I have to admit it makes me feel a little guilty about my own correspondence.

Sneaking in Sock Time

I have been busy sneaking in time between classes to work on a new pair of Slytherin house socks for me.
I have finished the heels of one of these, and am now turning the heel on the other. That magical researcher Cat Bohrdi must have been the cleverest witch of her year. I am working on her River Bed pathway, and it is absolutely inspired!

Slytherin House Quiz 2

  1. Are you a sock knitter?What are your foot measurements? Yes I like to knit socks. I wear a size 6.5 shoe US Women's shoe, and my foot is about 9 inches long
  2. Do you have a yarn winder and/or a swift? Yes, both.
  3. Where/how to you keep you needles/hooks? In clear zippered pouches in a drawer. I really want to make a hanging circular case though, where the needles can hang out so that the tips stick out on either end.
  4. Do you collect anything? I have several small dragon figurines in my bathroom, but I am not actively collecting them. Probably what I collect most are hobbies...
  5. What is your favorite type of music? Are you MP3 ready? I really like acapella, happy hardcore, vocal trance, operatic rock, wrock, musicals, and most music with good female vocals. I have a nano iPod, but also listen to a lot of podcasts from my computer.
  6. Do you like sweets? What are your favorites? I really like gummy things, mint-flavored things and of course chocolate.
  7. What is your living situation like? Any pets? Children? I live in a tiny apartment that fits 2.5 people. We have an african fat-tailed gecko and a 9 year old little girl for pets. I mean children. I mean... nevermind.
  8. Do you have an online wish list (Amazon, Etsy, Loopy Ewe, etc.)? Not really. I may have to think about that.
  9. Favorite Harry Potter movie character? It changes regular, depending what fan fiction I have read recently. I have been playing with Pansy Parkinson recently though, since she isn't a character we get to know terribly well in canon.
