Welcome!

Since our last Hufflepuff KAL was such a success, we decided to have another.  As before, Hufflepuff KALs are open to all of Hogwarts - we are the inclusive house after all!  If you'd like to join us, PM me (Lava) on Ravelry with your

  • Potter name
  • House, and 
  • year at Hogwarts.

Two months ago, Clidonia Acromantula and I snuck away from Hogwarts to visit another magical village called Rhinebeck.  It was there that Liddie introduced me to a magical yarn called Socks That Rock.  We each bought some holiday-themed sock yarn - the Dreidel colorway for me of course, and Christmas Balls for Liddie.  When Thanksgiving rolled around and neither of us had started her socks yet, we realized that the only way we'd ever finish in time was a KAL.  And so the HHSA was born!

Why are you joining the Sock Along?  Who are you making them for, and is there a deadline invoolved?  What pattern are you using - or are you still looking for one?  Most importantly, do you have any suggestions for a Chanukah-themed sock pattern?  They are really hard to find :(

I posted this in my entry, but one idea that you could use for Chanukah socks is to knit socks in blue and apply a duplicate stitch of the different Hebrew symbols around the cuff in silver. I'm not exactly sure how that would work, but if you could chart it out, I don't think it would be that difficult.

I don't know how the logistics would all work out. I've never actually made a pair of real socks before; I've only made one mini sock (for Cassandra).

I hope this was helpful. ^_^
