I got my pal I am so excited.
We are going to have fun getting to know each other!
Wow!I'm so excited! Thank you Cassandra for the invitation to join the Sock Swap. A friend of mine was in the last one and it was so interesting to see what she was doing. Unfortunately I see I have the same name as a third year so I supose I will have to be Selina the Lesser. Regardless, I'm happy to be here.

Edit: This round will be more like the first one, there different upstream and downstream pals
If you have a partner in a different year than you you send them a package for the year that they are in.
I only sent out a few partners today I can only sit at my desk a little bit at a time I will be sending out partners everyday and you should all have them by the weekend. I thank you all for you patience and understanding! Thanks

I made it to my computer today so, I am going to start getting partners out today. So start watching your emails. :) I have 3 people that have not accepted there blog invites yet please make sure that you check your secret emails to. If anyone can make some buttons or a banner for the blog that would be great I am not very good at that so if anyone would like to be my guest! I should have all of you in the right place now if you still don't see your name let me know! Hope everyone is getting ready!! Happy Knitting

Trivia Warm-up!

Hello to everyone! My name is Dora and I'll be the Ravenclaw Trivia Prefect this year. Ravenclaws, feel free to email me (doradumbledore at gmail) and I'll attempt to help you while our Headmistress is laid up. 

 Man, it's been cold even in my muggle town of San Jose; I can't imagine what it will be like when we get to Hogwarts in a few days. How about some trivia to warm us up? Speaking of our illustrious school, what is the translation of the motto on the Hogwarts crest?

I think I have gotten most of you put up in the side bar if you don't see your self please let me know. I will be emailing those of you who wish to help thank you for that. I broke my foot and am not able to get to the computer as much as I want so if you email me and don't hear back right away don't worry I will get to you I promise! You can go ahead and start posting to the blog if you wish Some of you had asked about that I don't mind at all I just ask that you bear with me for the next few weeks. !! Happy knitting

P.S. There will be a Harry Potter Cake on Ace of Cake on Food Network starting at 10:30 tonight!!


Hi every0ne it's Megaera Black here, I made a button for HSS3. I just started playing around in Photoshop so it's not the greatest but if you want to use it feel free to do so. Just right click (if you are a Mac user, first of I envy you and second I have no idea how to use a Mac...yet...) on the photo and save it on your computer then upload it to any photo sharing site then voila you have a button! I'm excited about my second year at Hogwarts and it's going to be a great year (swap!).

Moving slow

Please let me know if you have accepted the blog invite and I have not got you into your house yet. Enrollment is going very slowly right now we have 38 signing up on Raverly and 34 on the blog so 4 of you still need to get me all your info. We are still in need of a Prefect # 2 for Gryffindor and a Prefect #1 for Hufflepuff.
I am starting to put some matches together and should be getting some of them out by the weekend. If you know of any pattern that we don't have or you find something that you think we should have up let me know.

We are moving right along with enrollment! There are still spots open! We are in need of a few good Hufflepuffs! Join in the fun!!

Early enrollment

Just a little note to say that at 9:00 tonight I will be opening enrollment for those of you that were in the last swap to ensure your spot. Feel free to email me with any questions or problems. Looking forward to the start of term!


This is going to be just as fun as the last 2. Our previous headmistress has given me permission to run with it! So here I go. I will be needing some help so anyone that would like to be a prefect let me know when you contact me.

I will be taking sign ups starting on January 21, and they will close on Feb. 1 or sooner if we hit 100 members.
Contact info is cassandra.grubbly.plank AT gmail DOT com I think that it would be fun to do this as a character you do not have to do it this way to participate.
If someone is good at making buttons and would like to make one that would be great! This is my 3rd HSS swap and I hope that it will be as fun as the last 2!
