Hogwarts Sock Swap 2!

Woo, signups began on Saturday (July 14th)! I can't wait to find out who my pal is! I've never done a swap before, and this one sounds like so much fun! Come check it out!

Hogwarts Sock Swap Questionnaire

1. What Hogwarts house have you been sorted into? Gryffindor

2. Shoe size? Women’s US 9W – I have big feet, sorry!

3. Foot Length? 10”

4. Foot Circumference? 9”

5. List your three favorite double-point needle brands, including size and length. Umm…I’ve actually never knit socks on dpns, I prefer magic loop, so I have no idea what my favorite brands are. My favorite sock needle size is US 1.

6. Would you like to try a new brand needle? If so, which brand? Size? Length? I’m up for anything!

7. If you are a RAVENCLAW, do you prefer the colors in the film or the book? Do you have a strong preference? Not applicable - go Gryffindor!

8. Allergies? Nothing that would be aggravated by fiber, although I would prefer smoke-free if possible.
Will your knitting be exposed to smoke or animals? Yes, I have a long-haired cat who gets hair all over everything, despite my best efforts.

9. Are you an international participant (outside US)? Are you willing to have an international Hogwarts Sock Pal? I live in the US, but I would be fine with having an international pal!

Now I'm gonna be forced to actually complete a pair of socks again! Of course, that means I'm going to have to get sock yarn in the appropriate house colors. Can't wait!

In other news, I have a corner border and a top border done on the blanket. Class was huge tonight. Lifeboat tech starts tomorrow. I think I might go see Harry Potter again tonight, after a shower. And food. Definitely food.

Hello Augusta (HSS)...I was wondering, how did you get the Hogwarts button to work on your site? I can't find how to do it.

Just to let you know, you are listed on the HSS2 page as a first year Slytherin (the first name).

Woo another Central Coast Hogwarts Sock Swapper! How very cool. We should meet up and knit our pal's socks together.

I too have a Ravenclaw partner, which is rather convenient since I had a ravenclaw in round 1 too. I'm probably going to use the remainder yarn from those socks (plenty for another pair I think).

Oh, and I love you Rogue hoodie! I've got the pattern, but haven't found the right yarn for it yet. What yarn did you use? Or should I just stop typing and go check Ravelry?
