I’ve had many, many opportunities to join sock clubs over the last few years, but have never succumbed.
Until this one came up and I could no longer resist. I just joined and I can’t wait to see what they’re going to come up with!
Another thing I’ve never done is participate in a swap of any kind. The main reason for my reluctance on those is that I worry that I won’t be able to knit to a deadline–no matter how much time is given. I don’t do well with deadlines and knitting, even when they’re self-imposed.
But I just joined a swap, because it looked like it’ll be a lot of fun and because it’s a sock KIT swap, not a sock swap. There is a handmade component to the swap, but it’s pretty flexible so I’m confident I’ll be able to follow through. The swap I joined is Hogwarts Sock Kit Swap 5, a Harry Potter-themed swap with games and activities throughout the swap. Because I didn’t want to create a whole separate blog for my “character,” you’re going to see blog posts popping up here that relate to the swap (I’ve only just got into the swing of things here–trying to maintain two separate blogs might have been overdoing).
As a new student at Hogwarts, I will have homework from time to time…
Oh, and I’ve been sorted into Ravenclaw. I get to spoil a Slytherin in this swap. Should be fun!
