I finally managed to get my pictures off my camera and uploaded! More details on my blog.

It came today! Yea!!

Yea! I was a little worried about my package because I was out of town for two weeks and they claimed there was no package for me at the post office. But, there it was waiting for me today when I got home from work. Lovely Gina from Hawaii sent Merlin the Cat Yarns' Superwash sock yarn in Ravenclaw colors, some really cute pins, stitchmarkers, one of those keychain sock blockers with a pattern as well as yummy Hawaii coffee, pencils and a lovely handmade sock bag. That is really impressive - the seams are excellent (Did you use a serger?) - and to top it off, a copy of "Charmed Knits." Such a nice treat!

Sorry about the poor photo but this sock yarn if great! Unfortunately, this makes six new skeins of sock yarn acquired since the L&V sock marathon started - and only three pairs knitted. Do you think I can bring my knitting to the new Harry Potter movie?

Swap-Bot RoundUp

Okay, this should be the last thing that you have to do for this swap, I promise! Please leave a comment saying who you sent your swap package to, if it was received, and if you received a package yourself. That should clear everything up and then we'll be done with it :)

Thanks for your patience in this, ladies! I appreciate it!

My HSKS Swap Arrived!

Actually, it arrived weeks agon and I posted on my blog, but neglected to give Katherine her props. It was a lovely swap. My favorite was the stitch markers. Bling for my knitting!

There are pics on my blog:


Thanks to Kelly

I can't believe I forgot to post here!! I got my package 2 weeks ago and loved it!! I blogged about it on my blog but check out the pics here, cuz it was awesome. If you click it it's bigger and better. Check out the baby dragon...

Thank you Kelly (justaknitwit)

Owl Update

Hi everyone,

First I want to say thanks to Jenean for all the time you've put into this swap.

I sent my parcel to Wendy & it has been received.

My parcel from Racheal got sent & then returned to Racheal. Last I heard from Racheal she was resending it on June 27. I'll post here as soon as I receive it (although I'm getting worried it is lost again as it's going on 2 weeks)


Received packages

I know there has to be more packages than this, but I could only find evidence of those that are listed below. We had over 50 participants, so there should be more than what is listed below. If you have received your package please leave a comment to this post so that others can see and make note of them on the Swap-bot list.

Also, for those of you that have not received your package by now AND have not heard from your swap partner please leave a message here so that they may be marked as 'not sent.' They will also be banned from future HSKS swaps.


Owl arrives to Montana

Okay, I tried to edit that title, but Dobby must be playing with the computer to stop me. Cheryl, You are amazing! I will update (I hope I will be able to if Dobby gets out of the way!) my post and blog as soon as I find the camera. (I've done wedding cakes the past 2 weeks, so it is probably under a pile of powdered sugar or cake pillars.)

I'm in awe of the entire package, Thank you! Come on over here to see all the details!

I got my AMAZING package from Meg yesterday. I tried to get a photo today, but monsoon season got in the way. I saw the two seconds of sun, but when I grabbed my camera and went outside, the wind was going at 30mph and a nasty one was coming in, so pictures will be up on my blog tomorrow. Thanks so much Meg!!!!

Lists, lists, and more lists!

Hello, everyone!
In the next day or so I will be putting together a list of received packages so that you can go into Swap-bot to update packages received. I will post the list here and I will also send an email out to everyone with the list information.

Sock Kit Received

I received this wonderful package from April of Hufflepuff yesterday. The yarn is absolutely gorgeous...I can't wait to knit up a pair of socks with it (maybe in time for the new Harry Potter movie next week - better get cracking!!) She also sent some beeswax to make my hands all soft, some cute monogramed stationary, DPNS and a crochet hook. The bag is really cool too. I'm not sure if you can tell in the photo but it's black on the outside with red and gold fabric inside. Thanks again April.

All Hail Debbie

Queen of awesome swap packages!

She knit me the Dark Mark bag. I squealed when I saw it. And I was at work, which made it even funnier. It's beautiful! I absolutely love it.

Besides the fantastic bag, I also got 4!! skeins of Knit Picks Essentials Solids in those sexy Slytherin colors, 2 sets of DPNs in sizes 1 and 2, the CUTEST little stitch markers for knitting socks, Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans and Charmed Knits.

Debbie, I bow to your greatness.
