HP Trivia Time & A New Pattern Is Calling

It’s that time of the week when new trivia questions are posted for the Hogwarts Sock Kit Swap. This weeks questions are:

Trivia #1
What’s the name of this potion?This potion has the colour of molten gold, and while exposed to the air, large drops will leap like goldfish above the surface without spilling.

This potion is Felix Felicis.

Trivia #2
Which book is this line from?”Harry and Cho were now too embarrassed to look at each other, let alone talk to each other; what if Ron and Hermione started going out together, then split up? Could their friendship survive it? Harry remembered the few weeks when they had not been talking to each other in third year; he had not enjoyed trying to bridge the distance between them. And then, what if they didn’t split up? What if they became like Bill and Fleur, and it became excrutiatingly embarrassing to be in their presence, so that he was shut out for good?”

This quote is from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

Trivia #3
Who utters these words?”Oh I am glad I’m not on duty. I wouldn’t fancy having to go and tell the Irish they’ve got to stop celebrating.”

This was said by Arthur Weasley.


When I first saw the cover of Vogue Knitting Winter 2006/7 I didn’t really like it. But there was something oddly compelling about it. I have returned again & again for another look. I think it is the process, the modular knitting, the construction of the pentagons. I know I wont be happy until I at least try to knit this.
The decision to knit the bolero has been made, the problem now is the indecision as to what yarn to use…..
If you have knit this top please leave a comment, let me know how it went, what yarn you used.
