noodle--what an interesting stitch...is it crochet or knit or loom?

It's knit - I got a stitch dictionary and I'm basically working through making blanket squares. This I've, you alternate a knit row with a *k1, sl 1* row, basically - but at the beginning of every alternate *k1 sl 1* row you're supposed to add an extra k1, to off set it
 I kept losing track of those extra k1s, so a bunch of the ''loops'' made by slipping are in line, instead of offset from each other


Wow. I explained that really badly!!

Thanks for sharing the photo Edel! It was so cool to meet you, you have such an interesting perspective. I hope you enjoyed the show too Cheesy

We were taking a bit about swapping and especially IYP swaps so I may well be doing feet back into those waters soon (well, more sensible to wait for my summer break from coursework I guess...)... Don't be surprised if you get a PM around June, alwaysinmyroom (and a goodly handful of other craftsters on that last of dream partners too!)

I met dumbledore!!!!!!!

My daughter and I are in London for a couple of days. We ran into him today!!! He was by himself looking in a bookshop window, so I politely approached and thanked him for how much pleasure he had given us with his work. He shook my hand, thanked me, shook my daughter's hand and we chatted for a couple of minutes. He was really nice!!!

We met dumbledore!!!

PS noodlebug did you get my pm?

I did, but I think I may be too jealous to function!!

Class: transfiguration
House: ravenclaw
Project: smash book pages
I updated my smashbook again - several pages defeated using things that I've found around me in the last month or so - such as leaflets, tickets, our in this case the score sheet from one of our Tuesday Yatzee nights (The only time I ever actually won!) And a couple of left over promo badges

House: spew
Project: jo's new room
My friend jo had been moaning about needing to start decorating her new bedroom in their new extension (like me, she likes the decorating but not the prep work) so, knowing that she was on a day out with her family, I used my power as holder of the spare key to let myself in and do her basecoat on the walls and woodwork -  sacrificing my day off, but totally worth it for the happy phone call I got when she saw Smiley I am the undercoat fairy! I didn't want to post photos of her house on the internet without her permission, but here are my painty hands as evidence

Owl submission!
Subject: SoAR option 3
House; ravenclaw
Project: rainbow socks
My first go writing a sock pattern for myself (batting together basic elements really, but still had to make sure it all added up!) And I learnt A LOT! That's defiantly things I'd do differently - but basically I'm happy

I planned on adding the afterthought heel and scallop edging (both new to me techniques!) in a different yarn side I thought I'd run out of my main one, but in the end had plenty so decided that (since the yarn knitted up pretty busy looking) i didn't need any more going on and stuck with the main yarn


Which brings me onto....
OWL proposal!

Subject: transfiguration option 2
House: ravenclaw
Subject: zauberball socks
I'm intrigued to try something like the noro socks I've made before, but using a 'zauberball' - a differrnt brands long stand dye sock yarn - just to see the differences. These will be men's socks, I'm thinking they'll take me a fortnight per sock, so 4 weeks the pair. If I can get them done on time for my cousin's husband's birthday, they'll serve the dual purpose of
a) birthday present!
b) apology for non-attendance of birthday party (can't get time off work)
Of course, all socks are dual purpose anyway, in that they are
a) toasty feet warmers
b) elf liberation devices
