HSKS Trivia Question

Well it’s that time of the week. Every week Jenean, our hostess in the Hogwarts Sock Kit Swap posts a trivia question. Whoever can answer the question earns points for their house. The question this week is:

“There is nothing worse than death, Dumbledore!” “You are quite wrong. Indeed, your failure to understand that there are things much worse than death has always been your greatest weakness.” Who are the two people in this conversations?
Answer: the 2 people are Dumbledore and Voldemort.
And what kind of a blogger would I be, posting without pictures and some yarny goodness. So, look what I found in the Sunday papers (not that I read my stars, just thought it was kinda cool):

And, yes, I am an Aries. Aries the Knitter.

Over the weekend I did some gift knitting. I cast on for another felted bag. The yarn I am using is Te Awa Natural Wools that I bought off ebay.

I obviously didn’t read all the details & was quite surprised to find 2 large 200g hanks in the parcel. I bought it without a project in mind but after seeing the actual colours (much deeper, tealy greens than the pic) and how much yarn I had, I realised it would be perfect for a gift I want to make. I did a swatch to make sure it would felt (it does, beautifully). The bag is fairly basic but I have added a couple of rows of some “squiggly” yarn (that I hope wont get felted in) and a few rows of beads to make it more interesting.

Also from ebay:

10 hanks of Rowan rowanspun 4 ply (1480 metres/ 1620 yards in total). Any suggestions?
