Hogwarts Sock Swap

"Here in wise old Ravenclaw,
if you've a ready mind,
Those of wit and learning
will always find their kind."

What Hogwarts house have you been sorted into?

Shoe size?
Size 8 (US)

Foot Length?
10 in.

Foot Circumference?
8 1/2 in.

List your three favorite double-point needle brands, including size and length.
Inox DPN US1, 6 in.
Brittany DPN US3, 5in.
Boye Aluminum DPNs US 2, 7 in.

Would you like to try a new brand needle? Definitely!
If so, which brand? Preferably anything made of wood or aluminum (I'm allergic to nickel plating so sadly I've never been able to use Addi Turbos or KnitPicks' DPNs). I'm also game on trying out plastic DPNs if the tips are pointy!
Size? I knit a ton of socks so most of my needle sets tend to be in the 1-3 US size range.
Length? Not too long. I like to use DPNs between 5 and 7 in.

If you are a RAVENCLAW, do you prefer the colors in the film or the book? Do you have a strong preference?
I don't have a strong preference as far as book or film--I love them both!

Are you willing to have an international Hogwarts Sock Pal?

I joined yet another swap. I couldn't help myself--I've really been in a Harry Potter mood lately and I thought this would be an excellent swap to join up for. As you can tell, I was sorted into Ravenclaw, which suits me just fine. My dad, who is the supreme Potter fan in our family, thinks we'd both be Ravenclaws if we weren't muggles. We sorted our whole family one time based on our personalities and Price and my brother were Gryffindors, we were Ravenclaws and my mom would be the lone Hufflepuff.

Anyway, I suggest that if you're a Potter fan you should join in the fun, too! The swap is for a pair of socks and stitch markers in your partner's house colors and a set of needles (whatever your partner uses for sock knitting). You can find the swap here:
