hsks3 q & a

An owl has delivered a list of questions to be filled out for HSKS3. I have already been in contact with my spoiler partner and have sent her a small dissertation of information, but I will post these basic answers anyway.

1. What Hogwarts house have you been sorted into? Why, Ravenclaw, of course!

2. List your favorite double-point needle brands, including size and length. Or would you prefer circulars? I'm starting to get into Addi circulars for my socks. I currently only have 2 - #1's at 24". With dpn's, I prefer wood or bamboo to metal. I have 4", 5", and 6" dpn's, in #1, #1 1/2, #2, #3, and #4. I know, I know, Addi's are metal, but they're circulars so slip-age is reduced to almost nothing. Favorite brands of dpn's: Lantern Moon (oh, yes), Brittany, and Crystal Palace.

3. Would you like to try a new brand needle? If so, which brand? Size? Length? I have read about "Valley Farms" hard bamboo dpn's. I always enjoy Lantern Moon, of course. It would be nice to get #1 or #2 in a 9" or 8". **You do know that there are actually two sizes for #1 and #2...depending if you get the American version or the European version in millimeters? #1 can be 2.25mm and 2.50mm. #2 can be 2.75mm and 3.00mm. In some projects, this can make a difference. Metric is so much more precise.

4. If you are a RAVENCLAW, do you prefer the colors in the film or the book? Do you have a strong preference? I prefer the blue/grey combo simply because I am not fond of metalic yarns. However, a darker blue with a bronze/brown that is warm in tones would be nice.

5. Do you have any allergies? Thank goodness, no.

6. If you are swapping scarves - what is your desired length for the pattern? This will help your partner find the pattern that is just right for you and buy yarn accordingly. Nope. I only received my letter to come to Hogwarts this year. I'm a year one.
