Not So Secret Swap Loot

A package arrived Friday from Jinxsa for our Hogwarts swap we set up back in the spring between just the two of us.

Here's all the great loot she sent:

Harry Potter Books, an HP notebook, Stickers and a Keychain, a Honey Stick for Tea, Bertie Botts Beans and Dill Pickle Pumpkin Seeds.

Also included was the Charmed Knits Pattern Book, Alberta Skies Soap and my very own Ravenclaw Socks.

Detail shot of the pattern.

Unfortunately they don't fit as I can't get the cuff over my heel/ankle which is the widest part of my foot. There was quite a bit of cussing going on when I discovered this fact. Look how beautiful they are! Luckily over the weekend I found out these babies were knit toe up so I can unpick the last row or two and bind them off so that they fit. YAY!

I will post a photo of the socks on my feet after I preform minor surgery on them. Of course first I need to pluck up the courage to preform the surgery. Will keep you posted. :-)
