More Hogwarts Socks

The Hogwarts Sock Swap was such a great experience. My pal sent me the most amazing package. To start, all my goodies were tucked inside this cute box.

And what was inside? A pair of Ravenclaw socks (of course), a cute felted bowl, stitch markers, a sheep tape measure, a notebook (in suitable colors), and a whole set of DPNs. Awesome! I didn't get it in the picture, but the card was great. It has a scarf pattern on it... where did you find it?

Of course the best part is the socks. In film Ravenclaw colors, as requested, and they fit perfectly. I love the stitch pattern and the yarn. Thanks Kathleen!

(Please don't judge me for the tacky linoleum. I know it's hideous.)

I've spent some time this month working on a new scarf that I am completely in love with. It the Chevron Scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. Made in 2 skeins of Socks That Rock (shamelessly stolen from another blogger... again, don't judge me). I spent forever at the BMFA page trying to pick 2 colorways and was frozen with indecision. What if the colors weren't accurate on my monitor? What if they looked horrible together once knitted? I basically chickened out and used the colors that Ashley did (imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and all that). It looks awesome and I love the pattern. Can't wait for winter so I can wear it!

Your scarf is very pretty. It's hard picking the colors out just by holding up the skeins or looking online.
