What’s this? A Gryf Sock?

GRYFFINDOR?

I have been incredibly busy but it hasn’t been this GRYFFINDOR sock that has kept me so.

My lack of posts has not been because I have been knitting, although there has been ‘some’ knitting, but not much.

My lack of posts has been completely due to the scheme I had to get my soon-to-graduate daughter to dive into the world of knitting socks and sock swaps. I didn’t really think this clever little idea of mine would completely take over my life. Nor did I realize how many Harry Potter fanatics there were in the world of knitting! But, I quickly found out. The Hogwarts Sock Swap exploded within days of listing. In fact, I turned the sign-ups off after only ten days because we had already reached 100 participants. And THIS is why I have not had time to post on my blog or look at any of YOUR blogs for two weeks. I’ve been busy sorting, well I guess the Sorting Hat did the sorting, these eager knitters into their Hogwart Houses and giving them a pal to knit socks for.

The whirlwhind is over. The Prefects have been assigned. Life should get back to normal. And blogging should resume…………….SOON!

As for Jennifer – she was the last to join the Hogwarts Sock Swap, but she JOINED! And, I finally convinced her to set up a blog. Three more weeks and she will fall into the wonderful world of knitting bloggers and actually have time in her life to knit, the very best hobby in the world!

  1. Haha… thanks for the (multiple) links to my site. I didn’t know I was the last one to join the sock swap! Good thing I know the headmistress 😉

  2. I know when I first saw the note about the sock swap, it was already closed – and it had hardly been open that long, from what I could tell!

    So … you are making certain that the next generation continues in your footsteps – good for you!

  3. This Harry Potter fan will be watching with an invisible cloak on! I was so tempted to join…..! Wish my initial swap experience had been more pleasant – will give it another try someday, I am sure.

    You all should have lots of fun! Me – I will be jealous, I am sure….
