  • Ravenclaw to Ravenclaw

    Censure aquits the raven but pursues the dove.
    -Juvenal

    It's time to win some points for my Ravenclaw House - and what better way to do it than to knit socks for my pal, another Ravenclaw. It's unusual in this swap to have a pal in the same house, but I got lucky. These are the Diagonal Rib Socks from Interweave's Favorite Socks in a new-to-me yarn, Regia Stretch. I love the way it's working up on my Lantern Moon Sock Sticks, a gift from my pal in this swap. Sometimes a gal just gets lucky. And with a swap like this? Many gals get lucky.

    I love the blue and the needles! If only I were a Ravenclaw (I think I ended up a Hufflepuff, but I'm not in the swap so it's really irrelevant.

    Ok, I didn't even vaguely understand your posting as I've never read Harry Potter (don't hate me), but your socks look fantastic and I love those Lantern Moon needles!

    Seems like your chances of getting another Ravenclaw might be slightly better than getting a Slytherin ;)

    Love the color. They look fabulous!

    Great socks! I just bought the IK book and there are some really great patterns. I'm trying to decide which ones I should do first.

    That's amazing! I recently knitted some socks in this pattern but I didn't recognise it at all in this colourway - very nice indeed!

    Yeah, Mum has told me several times she thinks you and I are a lot alike :-)

    And yes, I'm having a lot of fun with the swap! I love your socks, by the way- they're gorgeous!!!
