So I have talked a lot about the HPSK swap. Now it is time for the good stuff.

Not a whole lot of knitting went on this week, but there is some yarn pron.

So I knitted the 3rd square for scarf circle 1. I used a raised eyelet stitch that I found in my favourite knitting magazine called Simply Knitting. The pattern was really simple, but very, very pretty.

I also knit some more on the Drop Stitch Vest. I am now up to 18 inches, so only 6 more to go and I will be all finished! Sqquuueeeeeeee.

The yarn pron is gorgeous with gorgeous colours. I ordered off two ebay sellers that are based in the UK. I also ordered from Dharmafey who is an Etsy seller.

I ordered some Ravenclaw yarn off Dharmafey. It is really pretty with deep blue and silver colours. The yarn is self striping so that when it is knitted up it gives a prison bars effect. This is based on the Prisoner of Azkabhan film.

I also bought some Rowenna yarn from the Natural Dye Studio on Ebay. The yarn is a little thicker than what I would of thought but it is still really pretty colours. One of the two harry potter yarns will be sent as part of the HPSKS gift.

The other yarn I bought was from an ebay seller called katy11knitting. The yarns I got off here are gorgeous. The colours are really vibrant. I have a ball of Regia knitting yarn, I think it is self striping in Canyon. This wool even has a 10 year guarantee against felting or piling. The other yarn is Sockina, in a lilacs and purples colourway.

I also have some other news in that I have found a knitting group that is local. I haven’t been yet. I will go next Tuesday though and post about my experiences.

That is all for now….trying to catch up on the knitting for next week….

So below you should see the first Harry Potter Sock Kit Swap Challenge that I am setting the students I watch under my beady eye – you know who you are!

By my calculations there are 5 weeks before the deadline date of the 21st June, therefore I plan to set 5 challenges, inc this one. I will set them at 1 per week, with the instructions included in the post. The prizes are as follows:

Week 1(this week): Set of 2 Harry Potter Coins and Harry Potter Sweets
Week 2: Set of 2 Harry Potter Coins and Harry Potter Sweets
Week 3: Harry Potter tea caddy, diffuser and diffuser tray
Week 4: Harry Potter address book and pen
Week 5: Copy of Charmed Knits

I will try to set the challenges on a Sunday.

Good Luck

This post is for the Harry Potter Sock Kit Swap. All the students who are under my prefectly eye, please read the instructions below and mail me the answer. First person to answer wins a prize. As soon as the prize is won I will publish the winner on my blog.
