Homework Completed!!!

I finished the second Gryffindor sock yay!! I decided to make these socks my priority knitting so I can get my pal's kit out as soon as possible. Now I just need to wash and block them and put some final touches on my pal's package then it's all done! I can't believe how fast I managed to get everything done this time and that I wasn't hit by the procrastination curse that normal finds it's way into my needles when I have a deadline.
Here's the socks, if you are a Gryffindor they could be yours! I made up the pattern as I knit them, I wish the color changes were a little neater but hey I tried really hard.

Gryffindor Stripey Madness Socks
Pattern: my own
Yarn: Elann Esprit ruby and inca gold
Needles: US size 1 addi circ (used magic loop)
Size: slighter bigger than my own ;-)

Stripe Madness -- Could this be your sock?

So I've finished the first sock for my Gryffindor sock pal Here's a sneak peak on what it looks like. I'm slowly working on the second sock it's not going as fast as the first did. I'm having fun getting goodies together and have so many plans, but so little time.

Yay for Etsy! I got some great goodies when I have more time I'll try to get links up to these fantastic Etsy sellers that I got some HP goodies from.

Not much knitting going on

Thought I'd drop by here and post since it's been a while. I'm sick with a horrible Muggle sinus cold, so I haven't been working on my partner's socks. I have been trying to find goodies for her package though and found some things on etsy that will be flying here by owl in the next week or so. I have all the things I need to make my pal's stitch markers -- gold and dark red (still wondering which house I'm knitting for?) Knit on or in my cause Cough on!

What's in a name?

Oh my, I really want this. There's a picture of the logo on the right. It's an Anti-craft shirt. I'm in love with the damaged t in black and the Edun Live Ladies T. I think I may order me some goodies!

The reason why I'm drooling over Anti-craft t-shirts, besides the fact that I've been oogling them for a while Silly me I forgot the Imbolic issue would be out!

Look at this cute little fella' It's our favourite elder god in cuddle form. Sooooo cute!
I tell you you need one, everyone needs one. There's even a pattern for those who *heart* Buffy. Go now, my little ones and learn to crochet follow the patterns then use them to make your own fantastical creations. Go, go forth and multiply your crafty hookers!

Dragon Love

This is the lace project I'm working on currently before I leave for Hogwarts. I'm not sure if I'll finish it at home or in the Slytherin Common Room either way it's beautiful. I love dragons, so this is the perfect thing to wear when I'm not flashing my house colours. It's the Dragon Scale Scarf and I'm using Handmaiden Sea Silk in mineral. It's a dream to work with so soft and I swear it gets softer, the more you knit, tink and frog it! Also you can see my beautiful stitchmarkers from zero at Etsy in Slytherin house colours. Oh did I mention the needles? They are KnitPicks Harmony size 3.25mm (US size 3) and a must have for any knitter I love the needles!! I ended up getting 32' circs in all sock sizes plus the interchangables. If you work with bamboo, silk, soy silk or any other lovely luxury, slippery and/or spility yarn these lamented birch babies are the only way to go. Eventually I want to have two pairs of all the sock sizes (yes I use up to 3.25mm for socks -- think Cascade Fixation or Elann Esprit, also perfect with my sock drug of choice Crystal Palace Panda Cotton so yummy) so I can do two socks at a time on two circs. I haven't done that yet and really want to do so. It will help with SSS (single sock syndrome) Well back to my knitting I swear this yarn and needles give me a yarn-gasm.

What can I say I love luxury and I'm somewhat limited in the yarn choices due to being cursed with allergies. At least I'm not allergic to dragons.
EDIT: I couldn't post this on Thursday because Blogger won't take the pictures now it won't take explaination marks in tags argg. damn muggles and their faulty technology
