Where are all of the pictures of the packages??  I do not know about the rest of you, but one of the best parts of a swap is seeing what other people have sent.  So please post!

Owl's Away

Padma Dumledore watch the sky's for your Owl! I hope the snow doesn't slow it down.

Will you keep your name from this term?

I've been thinking about this a bit as the end of term nears, I've noticed a few posts on a few blogs as well so I thought I'd ask here to see how everyone else feels. Will you be keeping your name and persona from this term for next term?

Saturday, March 29, 2008


Preparations for next term at Hogwarts are in the works. We are considering making changes to the swap kit and would like to get your opinions and ideas.

Besides, instead of, or in addition to a handmade bag, what other handmade items would you like to receive?

We are interested in all suggestions and magical ideas, keeping in mind that we would like to keep everything Harry Potter related. Please post your ideas here before the end of the term.


Let's all send a big round of congrats to Enid Black who gave birth to a baby girl today! Another knitter is born!

Unfortunately ~ Professor Snape hates Harry and would love to do anything he could to get him into trouble.


Proffesor Snape had no real proof, so there was nothing he could do about it.

Luckiest Ravenclaw Ever!

Look how much I have been spoiled! At first I could not see anything because the package was wrapped in an invisibility cloak. Once I figured out the cloak, I was ecstatic to see my package! Not only did Electra the Enchanted knit me a BEAUTIFUL bag, but she also sewed another bag to hold the yarn. Speaking of the yarn, she said this is the first time she has tried dying her own HP yarn. Talk about first timer luck!! It is gorgeous!! And all the extra goodies, how lucky am I!

Thank you so much Electra the Enchanted!!

Lavender Diggory


Unfortunately Snape blamed Harry for the missing gillyweed and ingredients for polyjuice potion that were missing from his Potions closet

Monday, March 24, 2008


Fortunately Dobby was able to help harry with the 3rd challenge.

Last Game 2

Unfortunately the Hogwarts House Elves were insulted by Hermione hiding hats in the Gryffindor Common Room, so none of them would clean there except for Dobby.

Last game *sniff*

Ok Swappers...

Wanna play one more game!?!?

I have been thinking long and hard...and this is what I have come up with.

I am copying from the Ravelry Games board. It is called Fortunately/Unfortunately. I will start.

Fortunately, Hermione started knitting hats for the house elves, to set them free.

(Now someone else posts a comment for Unfortunately. It will continue on in that manner)

Happy Easter!!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.

Felda, the House Elf......

Your owl will be sent on Tuesday!!! It's all wrapped up and ready to go! I hope you enjoy everything in it! I've had lots of fun putting it together.

Slytherin Charms Challenge

Charms are a type of magic spell concerned with enchanting an object to behave in a way that isn't normal for that object. Charms is also something of a catch-all for spells that aren't Transfiguration (spells that change the inherent nature of an object). Charm spells are in some ways the opposite of Curses: many Charms seem to have an inherent positive tone, while Curses have an inherent negative one. This is not to say that Charms are weaker magic; a well-chosen Charm is a powerful magical tool against curses, jinxes, and hexes. Professor Flitwick, the Hogwarts Charms teacher, was rumored to have once been a duelling champion, after all.

1 Which charm did Slughorn say would disable a Muggle burglar alarm?

2 What was the basic defensive spell, taught at the Duelling Club by Snape and used frequently thereafter?

3 What spell was used by witches and the wizards in medieval times who were burned at the stake?

4 What spell did Snape tell Draco to cast on Harry at the Duelling Club?

5 Which spell did Draco cast on Neville just for kicks; which had Neville hopping all the way back to Gryffindor Tower?

6 Fifth-years worked on which spell in Charms using bullfrogs and ravens?

7 Which charm did Harry accidentally mix up the incantation for with the Colour Change Charm during his practical Charms O.W.L.?

8 Which charm was Harry and his classmates practicing in their fourth-year Charms class that had Professor Flitwick being swept all around the room by Neville, whose aim wasn't very good.

9 What spell did Harry try to cast on Draco, but it was deflected and hit Goyle in the face outside of the Potions Classroom?

10 What charm did Hermione cast to keep Rita Skeeter trapped in beetle form?

11 What charm did Hermione have to use on Harry while he was unconscious after their visit to Godric's Hollow?

12 Which charm did Hermione try in an attempt to protect herself, Ron, Bogrod, and Griphook from the burning, multiplying treasure in the Gringott's vault?

13 Kevin, the little wizard boy in the World Cup campground, was casting what spell on a slug before his Mother took his Dad's wand from him?

14 Lockhart supposedly used which charm to defeat the Wagga Wagga werewolf and demonstrated in Defence Against the Dark Arts?

15 Madame Maxime used which charm to force Golgomath's thugs to drop Hagrid when the giants became hostile with the ascension of the new Gurg?

16 Which charm proved useless against the door in the Department of Mysteries (which also melted Harry's knife-blade)?

17 What is the substance that can destroy Horcruxes, that Hermione considered far too dangerous to ever use?

18 What charm did Ron recommend Harry use on Cormack McLaggen after his antics cost them a Quidditch match?

19 What charm does Ron say he can use instead of looking in the mirrors when he drives a muggle car?

20 What spell was Seamus Finnigan reciting the definition of aloud, the day before Harry's first O.W.L. exam?

21 What charm did Snape suggest had been used on Harry, Ron, and Hermione by Sirius Black in the shrieking shack?

22 The power of which Charm will be diluted more and more as more and more people become Secret Keepers?

23 Which charm became fashionable during the last month or so of Harry's fifth year, because Dungbombs and Stink Pellets were being used frequently in the corridors?

24 Which spell is known only to Death Eaters, and is sent up in the sky when they kill?

25 To deal with his Aunt Marge Harry tried to recall which spell on page twelve of the Handbook of Do-It-Yourself Broom Care?

Hope you had a great day!

Saturday, March 15, 2008

Congrats Gryffindors!!!!

Congrats to the Gryffindors on winning quidditch!!!

You are one great seeker Cassandra!

Congrats to Gryffindor House!!

My congratulations to Gryffindor House -
winners of HSKS Quidditch games!!
What an exciting round of HSKS this has been! There have been so many new twists and turns. It has truly kept me and the prefects on our toes. I hope that you all enjoyed the last round. I wanted to do it a little bit different so that I wouldn't be too predictable lol

I will total up the points and have a final count for you all on Monday, as well as the award trophy for Gryffindor House.

The Dobby Prize

At last my heartfelt tribute to the fallen house-elf and knitter extraordinaire, Dobby, is complete. Sadly, the socks aren't as good as I hoped they would be - the snitch one does not easily 'slip' on, but is a very comfortable fit once past the heel! I apologise to whoever wins them if they have substantial ankles to get them over!

I have forgiven Gryffindor for their hat trick and decided not to furnish the socks with itching powder!

Hufflepuff cheer

Dear Hufflepuffs,
I am currently designing house socks for all the Hogwarts houses and need a short (two worded) cheer for Hufflepuff. I have 'Soar Ravenclaw', 'Go Gryffindor' (though at the moment perhaps I would prefer 'Go Away Gryffindor!!!!), and 'Ssssslytherin', but haven't yet been inspired with anything for Hufflepuff. So I'm appealing for suggestions, and would greatly appreciate any you can offer.
Love to all (even Gryff's because I know you're nice really, and I'm just a sore loser!!)

The Game May Be Over

The Quidditch matches may be over, but I hope this isn't the end of the fun! I've truly enjoyed reading the blog posts, seeing the pictures of all the amazing kits that have been put together, and the camaraderie this swap has created. Even the friendly repartee and the sometimes intense competition has helped to create a community that I've been very excited to be part of. You're all very clever knitters, and I'm very pleased to have made your acquaintance. I hope we can keep our Hogwarts experience going strong!

Oh, and let me add a huge thank you to Jenean ::bear hugs Jenean:: for providing this amazing opportunity to us all!

Snitch Has Been Found

On behalf of Headmistress Wartbobble, congratulations go to Cassandra Puddlemere and Gryffindor for finding the Snitch. Headmistress Wartbobble is attending to official Hogwart business this morning. She will be back at the end of the day to add her congratulations.

Friday, March 14, 2008

Tuesday, March 11, 2008


Come on Slytherins we need to really try hard if we plan on winning!

Swap package is here

I received my swap package a bit ago. Well, so long ago I ate all the chocolate that was in it already. I am having a tough time with my camera (between finding it and putting in charge batteries). I will post pics of the beautiful yarn, bag, and st markers (and the other stuff) to my blog soon. I have so many things on the needles that need to be done by the end of this month that I can't cast on these socks yet, but I am so looking forward to it. I do get to use the beautiful st markers already though.

And the chocolate was divine. Yummmy, yum.

(I tried posting earlier, but blogger wouldn't let me.)

Arrivederci, Lily of Flitwick!

I would like to take this moment to honor a member of Gryffindor house, Lily of Flitwick.

Lily will be leaving for Italy tomorrow to compete in a Marathon to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Lily has raised close to $5000 for much needed cancer research.

On March 16Th Lily will run 26.2 miles in search for something much greater than the finish line; a cure.

Please join me in wishing Lily a safe flight, a swift race and a safe and triumphant return.

Lily never were truer words spoken then these

“You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart”

Good luck, Lily of Flitwick, Heir of Gryffindor!

I received my swap package!

On Saturday, I came home from a trip out of town to find a box on the porch...but this wasn't just any box, it was my swap package. =) Excited, I took it inside, took pictures of the outside, and carefully opened the box to find so much more than I'd ever expected...all carefully documented by my camera, of course! I am spoiled, and then some. Pictures will go up on my blog probably sometime this week. Perpetua Phoenixfire, you may be a Gryffindor, but you sure know how to spoil a Ravenclaw. Thanks SO SO much again! =D

Diadem Of Ravenclaw - how's that for esoteric?


C = Cauldron Cakes


B= Bertie Botts Every flavor Beans


Ok, I might be getting a little annoying, but I like to play games, and we have been quiet again lately. I would like to start another game. Harry Potter Alphabet. I will take the first letter, 'A' and name a word associated with HP that starts with that A. We will go down the alphabet. Anybody up for a game?
