Knitting my fingers off.

There is ALOT of knitting going on at Sweetp's house. I am a master procrastinator and crammed my way to a first class honours degree. Nothing like an imminent house move (and a to do list a mile long) to get me knitting and knitting.

This month's stripes from Tri'Coterie are Hogwarts House Colours! With the last Harry Potter film being released next month you can get your yarn in time to be watching in suitable stripey attire. I knit some sock cuff samples to show people how the yarns stripe up...

Slytherin, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Gryffindor (which is not as orange as it looks - scarlet and gold).

Oh I love this one. I did 5 inches of knitting on this one to make them into Arch-shaped socks for me.

This one is really clean and bright. Good one for any Hurricanes fans too!

and Gryffindor:

It's really difficult trying to get this one to photograph properly, it really is a bright scarlet and gold and not orangey-red.

I think someone else is going to knit up Ravenclaw.

I think they look great and the stripes are so fun to knit. If you want some, pop into the Tri'Coterie group. These are NOT a club, you can simply order what takes your fancy and there are a variety of bases to choose from.

As for Deathly Hollows Part II...I am so excited to see it, but also feeling quite sad the movie adaptations have come to an end. I'm looking forward to reading the books to my kids one day and have been grabbing 2nd hand copies of the books when I find them on my op shopping sprees. I hope they'll enjoy them as much as I did.


  1. I love these wools, they look awesome. Are they the dreaded two ply though??

  2. Despite myself, I do quite like the dreaded Slytherin...and am quite partial to Ravenclaw (which I think is the house I would have been sorted into, heh!).

    I am looking forward to reading the books to/with Connor one day. In the meantime, I've been entertaining myself playing Lego Harry Potter on the iPad - hilarious and very addictive!

  3. Oh how I wish I could! They look awesome, though!
