OMG - I Feel Like The World's Biggest Geek!

The sorting hat says that I belong in Ravenclaw!




Said Ravenclaw, "We'll teach those whose intelligence is surest."

Ravenclaw students tend to be clever, witty, intelligent, and knowledgeable.
Notable residents include Cho Chang and Padma Patil (objects of Harry and Ron's affections), and Luna Lovegood (daughter of The Quibbler magazine's editor).

Get Sorted Now!

I'm really not sure if this is good, bad or indifferent - I'm not well versed in Harry Potter lore. And it was pretty close - I came up as 84 Gryffindor, 92 Ravenclaw, 90 Huffpuff, and 32 Slytherin. I don't think I could really like someone who didn't have a little Slytherin!

On the knitting front, I am working on a Harry Potter-themed sock, "Fawkes" from Momma Monkey at Socktopia. The yarn is so ugly, it's burning my eyes! Thank God it's merino/tencel or I would probably bury it - it does suit the theme though, and I'm sure one of my nieces will find them bee-yoo-tee-ful! I am knitting a second sock at the same time - rewarding myself with a few rows of lovely for every row of fuggly - all in the name of SoS '07. And in true startitis-style, I started another sock this AM - just for the hell of it...

I received a wonderful parcel in the mail this week, too. From One Planet, some beautiful Artesano alpaca Inca Cloud and a pattern by Jean Moss. Can't wait to get started on this project :).

Hey! The sorting hat put me in Ravenclaw too! So I guess that makes us both geeks! Love the socks!

Your Miranda sock is beautiful -I had thought (when I ever make these socks) that I would not do the shaping - just start with the post shaping numbers for the cast on??? But I DO like yours with the nice calf, so I may have just changed my mind!
Thanks for the "One Planet" link - I've never been there!

I am slithering Slytherin. Course, I was totally crabby when I took it.

Karin said...

Hey Bets - that is right on! I think there's a little Slytherin in all of us (well the interesting ones anyway -winks).
