Very Tired Owl

I got mine today!!! YaY!!! I've been so jealous reading about everybody else receiving their sock kits.... while I sit up here in Canada waiting, and waiting. But my owl finally arrived today! I think he must've been really tired from flying all this way because he didn't stay to chat. I heard a soft "thump" at my door this morning. I thought it sounded strange so I opened the door and my sock kit was there.... no mailman in sight, so it must've been an owl. ;-)

PSA - aka What Not To Do With Yarn!

Note to self and others:

Do not take your just-received Potter Covers yarn to work and leave out on your desk - people will walk by, see it, pet it, and ask for SOCKS. I work with several HP readers and they all want MY socks! Not gonna happen!!

Love the colors - and the little stitch marker-to-be - too bad I have 4 other pairs of socks in the queue right now, so it'll be a bit before I get to these! Thanks, Carrie!!

Mine came, too!

Carrie, what a cute pattern! I hope I can get my life organized enough to cast on soon. The little stitch marker is darling.

Spoiler at Vortex of Chaos.

Owl Arrived at the Office

The magic was with me today! I received 3 out of the 4 sock clubs I am in.

I have to admit it is like a holiday when I get packages at the office! Especially when it is yarn. I am so luvin' this color... I can't wait to cast on...

Now all I need is a time turner to help me knit more projects at once and not miss al the fun of knitting them...



Mine came yesterday - I love the colors! And the pattern? Is one I've been dying to try!

Still, I must be good and finish the Sorcerer's Stone socks first, so it looks like these will have to wait a week or so.

Beautiful yarn again! Just the colors I was hoping for. The pattern looks really exciting, too! Gotta admit, I'm a little nervous about doing my first toe-ups, but adventure is good, right?


The new yarn is absolutely beautiful! Thank you thank you, Carrie! I think I will now attempt my first toe up sock :)

I got an Owl

Whooo Hoooo Carrie!! I love love love the colorway! It is exactly what I would have done if I could dye yarn! And do you make the little extra's on the tag? This one is adorable too! We are going to have one cool set of stitch markers (if that is what you do with them)

I do want to let you all know that something strange happened with this delivery! My power went out & so I look out the window and I see my mail man pulling up to my mail box. Then after he put our mail in the box and pulled away from our house our power came back on! Weird Huh!

I love the pattern too! I just got this book last week and have been working thru the practice socks so I am really excited to do this pattern!

Are the Owls on their way?

Hopefully, it is time to be checking my mailbox for the next installment ;) I am anxious to see your interpretation of The Chamber of Secrets. (I have no doubts it will be great!)

Just curious...

I just got billed again, so does this mean... more sock yarn is coming this month? :3 oooh... *is hopeful*

Getting Excited

Hi, I'm new. Carrie let me in late.... thank you!
I'm from Canada (where the HP book covers are crappy) so I had to use this club as an excuse to pre-order the HP Boxed Set from the US..... yay.
I'm getting my first two sock club shipments at the same time. I'm very excited by what I've seen of your socks! I can hardly wait for mine to arrive.

Done mine!

Wow. I just finished a really gooshy post on my blog, and I think I might love these socks a little too much :P

Can't see from the picture, but I did the Eagle's Flight socks. My first ever lace-ish pattern! I had a lot of fun working with this yarn and I can't wait to see what Chamber of Secrets is going to look like. Thanks Carrie!


So here it is!

One Down

Hi All!
I have finished my first sock!  The second one will be done sometime next year :)  Anyway, I really would love to post pictures but I do not want to ruin anyone's surprise if they still haven't received their package.  If there is anyone that does not want me to post pictures yet, let me know.  If I don't hear anything within the next couple of days, I will post my picture.  Happy Knitting!
