Hogwarts, Year 2 Questionnaire

Here's the answers to my Hogwarts Sock Swap questionnaire.

1. What Hogwarts house have you been sorted into? Gryffindor.

2. Shoe size? Foot length? Foot circumference? Shoe Size- 9 to 9 1/2; Foot Length- 9 1/2; Foot Circumference- 9 1/2, (I have a wide foot and high instep)

3. List your three favorite sock yarns.
a. Koigu
b. Socks That Rock
c. Tofutsies

4. Would you like to try a new brand of sock yarn? If so, which brand? I'd like to try Vesper, Austerman Step or Louet.

5. Do you prefer variegated or solid sock yarn? Depending on the color, I tend to like solids more. But if it's a variegated combo that I love, then I'd go with that. (I love Koigu solids.)

6. What colors would you like to add to your sock yarn stash? My "wish" list: STR, "Spinel", "Hoofle Foofle", and "Minestone" colorways. As for solids, I like blue, black, brown, yellow, pink...just not purple or orange.

7. What kind of sock patterns do you gravitate toward? Lace? Ribbed? Fair Isle? I'm still a beginner, so I'm willing to try anything. I really want to try a Cookie A. pattern.

8. Do you have any allergies? (smoke, animals, etc.) None

9. Will your socks be exposed to cigarette smoke or animals as you knit them? No cigarette smoke. I do have two cats, but my knitting is always in plastic bags and then put in my knitting bag.

10. Are you willing to have an international Hogwarts Sock Pal? Sure!

Well, this is a good start.
Hi! from your Hogwarts 2 pal in Boston. Check out my Hogwarts blog - http://Lavender Brocklehurst Knits Socks - for my info.

I'm sure there is a lot more you can tell me. How about a picture of your feet (in socks)?
