Socks for my house elf…

I have been sucked in. Harry Potter Ravelers…if you have not heard of the HPKCHC don’t bother looking. You will be sucked in and the flames will fan your knitting mojo and you won’t know what hit your stash. Seriously.

HPKCHC, aka Harry Potter Knitting/Crochet House Cup, works just like it sounds. You are sorted into houses (you get to choose, Ravenclaws, good luck, it’s the most popular house). Then you get to knit your assignments for Potions, Herbology, Care of Magical Creatures, Defense Against the Dark Arts, Charms, & Transfiguration. You can even sign up to do OWLS. All of which earn you points and there are real prizes awarded, plus someone’s gotta get the cup at the end of the term. It’s awesome. I can’t put my needles down.

For Potions we had to knit something warm for someone we know (you know, due to the shortage of Pepperup Potion). I chose to knit a pair of socks for the local house elf…who is walking by the way. As soon as I put them on him, he sat down so he could yank them off.

Whoo Hoo! Mama made me new socks!

Whoo Hoo! Mama made me new socks!

Alright! Thats enough of that...

Alright! That's enough of that...

    You have far more patience than I do to knit a pair of socks for a very quick growing child. My girl get a pair of socks perhaps two a year. I am not sure if I want to knit socks for her wee little sister yet.

    Looks like Finn has to work for his knitwear. Sweep up and you can have these socks! He is SUCH a cutie!!

      Thanks Pooch, yeah, we think he’s pretty cute too. That broom was the key to his walking. He wasn’t too sure about this whole walking thing as crawling is so much faster, but his Grandma bought him a toy broom and away he went!
