Crochet Progress

I am working very hard on my spoilee's _________! It's comming along beautifully! It's a ________, with ________ and __________. I hope she like to ________ and eats __________! Maybe I should post a sneaky, out of focus super close up of the piece so far, or is that cruel, I hope when it's done that Stellwa really loves it, she's such an accomplished fibre artist - I have nothing on her!

Happy Halloween everyone!


Winnie are you in our Appleby Arrows Quidditch Stadium, in North Lincolnshire, England. I think you are! Enjoy our next game!

Winnie - she's in New Zealand at the Lanarch Castle in Dunedin and in Quebec, which is in CANADA - yay! Oh, in St-Donat in Quebec! Been there, it's lovely in autumn, all off North-East Ontario and West-North Quebec are beatiful. Fell lucky to live here! Maple syrup is my yummy - lucky me, I am in range for tasty syrup. I go collect maple sap every spring for just this purpose. I hope it's actually where she is!

My wonderful Spoilee is Stwella Quinn of the Wigtown Wanders, and I certainly hope that she will enjoy everything I make for her, it's going to be extra challenging for me, I need to step it up - she is an accomplished fibre artist.

I have not yet heard from my Spoiler, Perenelle Tejedora, crosses fingers that I hear something soon, she still has plenty of time, so I'm not worried!

Quidditch Assignment Number 1

Blog Assignment # 1

Alright, Saraid Swiftrunner, get your broom in gear to answer these questions!

1. Someone with the same craft as you (either those listed above or another one).
Poppy Pluot crochet’s just like me!

2. Someone who was born in the same month.
Selena Starfire We were born in June!

3. Someone from a different country.
Lily May Clearwater She’s from the UK, I’m in Canada!

4. A new HSKS Quidditch player.
My Spoilee – Stwella Quinn! Just like me!

5. A player who has been in 3 or more HSKS swaps.
Misslucy – WOW Seven ! That’s fantastic!

6. A player who has a bigger stash than you! (And if your stash is the biggest, proudly say so!)
Ginny Lockheart Everyone seems to have a bigger stash then me (perfect excuse to go shopping)

7. A player who both knits and crochets.

8. Someone who has the same favorite color as you
Albatross Harbinger Greens! We love them!

I had a challenging time finding another June birthday, but my very own teammate, Selena Starfire of the Applyby Arrows (Arrows Arise!) shared the month! I had fun with the excuse of homework to look at everyone’s blogs. A few peoples blogs had trouble with accepting comments – so a couple of the a forementioned Quidditch players didn’t get a blog comment, but I fired one off to their Raverly instead! First Assignment done, now, back to my yarn choices – what would my spoilee like more? I should send her a quiz.

Flow Chart of Wishes

I am stuck at the University, so I am playing with a flow chart maker, here are a few things I like - in flow chart form.

I love DMC Satin Cross Stitch Floss, and I have NONE of it anymore (hint, hint...)
I need anything for cross stitch, and Crochet, as I borrowed all I used to have and had to give it back when I moved.
I love Moss Green, hunter green, any rich green. Creame colours and the British and Canadian Spelling of words (as I am a Canadian).
I love Kinder chocolate. Love it. Though I am not crazy about any other kind of cholate really, I am a vanilla person.
I don't burn candles, and I hate herbel tea. But I love black teas, Irish Breakfast is my fav.
I love Celtic music and the bagpipes.
Syltherin is my favorite House, but I love to read and learn. I secretly like the Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency.
I am in the Canadian Air Force and attend a University in the Great White North!

Appleby Arrows!

My goodness! My gracious! I'm an Appleby Arrow, I dare say I need to kick up my brrom and get my butt in gear for this season of Quidditch and crochet! Does anyone think it's sound advice to practice my chaining while swooping around the keepers ring?

I can hardly wait until Monday when I find out who I am swapping with - Picking out Yarn is like shopping for shoes - I have to try everything! I go in for one skien and come out with 3 or 4!

Go Arrows!

Flight Time

Hopes and Pray's that I am chosen for the Magpies - I adore Midnight Black's and Crisp Whites. Actually, I know I am a rookie Quidditch Player (my very first year trying out for the Sock Swap) I hope I can just get on a team!

I am Sariad Swiftrunner, a Canadian witch with as great Keeper Skills as Crochet Skills (an avid Rookie at both!) . I am currently being mentored by a wonderful Crocheter (?) and have just made my first pair of mits. Looking forwards to a season of crafting and Quidditch! I am a seasoned Cross Stitcher and hope I can find the time to make matching cross stitch patches for her Swap Kit.

For the Muggles - This is my blog for the Hogwarts Sock Kit Swap 9. I stumbled upon earlier swaps and wanted to do the Summer Camp Swap but was on my BMQ course so I am trying this one. Looks like fun - here's the link!
