sock pattern

This pattern is absolutely amazing, don't you think? And it is called "Durmstrang socks", so it would be a great pattern to buy for your swap pal. Just go to the etsy store of Rumpelstiltskin to find it either as a .pdf-file or already printed.

Goblet of Fire

I just had to share this with you, while browsing for more Harry Potter related items on etsy, I found a real Goblet of Fire. It is made by John T. Unger who has lots more of great firebowls in his shop plus unique masks and bottlecap mosaics.

Unfortunately I don't have a place where I could use this firebowl, but I absolutely love it. Be sure to have a look at this store.

where did this week go?

Classes kept me all busy and everybody around me seems to be sick lately. Now I fear I'm catching a cold too, I feel like I could sleep all day and night.

But as I'm participating in several other swaps too, I have to get some knitting done and some stitchmarkers want to be created.

So, I'm off again after a quick stop here, I hope to find more time talking to all of you soon
