Hey, just wondering if anyone has heard anything from or about Lia? She was supposed to send my sock kit, and I never received anything and I have not heard from her, so I was wondering if maybe someone knows what happened. Trying really hard not to feel screwed over here :)

HSKS3 Site

The HSKS3 site is up. I'll be updating it more in a couple of weeks.

Hi Sarah, Have you received your swap kit yet? I mailed it a zillion years ago and sent it priority owl. I never thought it would take this long to get to Wales. Do you think the owl took a break somewhere between here and there? Georgi


Hey, everyone! I'm loving seeing all the really neat kits that you've made!! I've gotten some great ideas for the next swap *rubbing hands together!*

I leave for a missionary trip to Mexico this Saturday, August 4th. So, I will be unavailable until after Sunday, August 12th.

If your package does not reach you by Friday, August 10th, and you have not heard from your partner, please come back here and leave a tag at this post letting me know. That person will sadly be put on the HSKS black list, and will be unable to participate in future swaps.

Again, thanks for all the fun!!! I hope to see many of you back for the next swap. I'll be making announcements for it shortly after I return home.

Thanks Jenean!

Thanks Jenean! My wonderful package arrived last week and I am so very pleased with it. The bag and the needle case is amazing. The treats right from Honeydukes. The yarn - Alpaca! My favorite! And in beautiful Gryffindor colors! The stitch markers came in a potions bottle! I am one very happy Gryffindor! Now, back to read book 7!

Owl Post!

I got a great box in the post today! Mary sent me beautiful stuff check out my blog for pics and all the details!

Hooray! It's finally here!

After a severe lack of cooperation from the U.S. Postal Service (or maybe the Ministry of Magic confiscated the package to make sure there were no secrets from Dumbledore slipping through), my swap kit from Ansley finally arrived today. And, boy howdy, it was well worth waiting for.

What she sent:
  • 1 absolutely gorgeous striped and felted bag
  • 3 skeins of sock wool - 2 wine colored and 1 sort of a golden apricot
  • Size 1 double pointed needles
  • A row counter braclet (I've been eyeing those, but never could bring myself to buy it for myself)
  • A pattern for April Fool's socks
And then the treats ...

  • Funky Farm Mint Fragrance Body Wash and an adorable sheep body scrubber
  • Exploding Bon-Bons
  • Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans
  • Chocolate Frogs
  • (and for the Muggle Chocolate lovers out there) 2 - count 'em - 2 Dove Bars
Plus a really cool Hogwarts gift bag.

Thank you so very much Ansley. You rock!

From Kristen

Who did a great job with her first stitch markers (I wouldn't know it was your first time, Kristen, they are so nicely done). Very pretty sock yarn too (what are they? I couldn't find a label), a pair of 2.75mm Knitpick circulars, a knitted cotton drawstring bag, a pattern, an Albus Dumbledore bookmark, and HP sweets. Really wish I had my book, I left the book token in DH's office so need to collect it and go get my book. Many thanks Kristen and Jeanette.

My owl came too!

Thank you Megan- your sewing was great and the yarn is just beautiful!

The photo is coming out blue- I dropped the camera when we were in Ireland, so it still works, but all of the photos are now blue. Add some yellow to this and we have a perfect Hufflepuff package!

Great Needle cozy too and stitich markers and needles and everything!

Thanks again-

Now to get my package sent off- if the needles ever come in!

I love my package!

My owl arrived on Wednesday but nobody was home. I went to pick it up this morning and opened it int he car in front of the post office. OMG, Kate, you have completely rocked my world! There was so much stuff in the package that I could take a picture of it all.There's a skein of hand-dyed yarn, 2 skeins of Koigu, a set of bamboo needles, 2 sets of handmade birch needles, a bath bomb, bubble bath, a Canada shot glass and patch, a magnet from Lettuce Knit, and a bag that is so cute that I originally thought that it was store bought. (Plus, 2 bags of Twizzlers and a bag of strawberry hard candies.)
Kate, you totally rule!!

Well, the owl arrived this past Saturday with my kit from Lori... too bad I was in Austin *lol* I had gone to a friend's on Friday and we went to a DH Release Party in Georgetown TX -- I as Molly Weasley and she as Tonks.

However, When I got home Sunday night this is what I found!!!

Lori! Thank you SO VERY MUCH!! Everything was awesome and I loved it!

Beth's owl left here this morning with her package as I had to wait on her yarn which arrived while I was gone also :)
