R.A.O.K.! Random Act Of Kaae

This past week I received an owl all the way from Denmark. I had thought I was receiving my Hufflepuff Cracker Exchange very early, but when I opened it I saw a R.A.O.K. from our favorite Hufflepuff Dane, Kaae.

Inside was a skein of Opal sock yarn, a bag of sweets, a Badger coin purse and her very own design... the Mr. Weasley's Knotty Tie. Thanks again Kaae, it's all pretty awesome.

I'll be passing on a R.A.O.K. of my own, which I've decided to keep in house. So a certain Puff will be getting something once Artimus returns from his delivery to Electra the Enchanting. I wonder who it will be???? Don't you???? ::grins::

Hufflepuff Quiz #7

Better late than never I always say...

1. If this was your first HSKS, have you enjoyed yourself. If you are alumni, was this term better than other terms (if so how)?
This is my 3rd HSKS. I've honestly enjoyed all of them. I wasn't able to be as active this time, but still enjoyed it

2. Will you be returning for HSKS7?
Depending on the job situation I hope to come back for HSKS7

3. What is your favorite part of HSKS?
I like the character blogging, especially how I've included myself as an adult as a part of my teen aged wizard character's family. It's great to interact with people who also love 2 of the things that I love; Knitting and Harry Potter. My fan-dom friends who don't knit are very jealous of all the fun things we do and receive.

4. If you had the chance to switch houses next term would you? What house would you be in?
I'm a Hufflepuff through and through. Love my house and my house-mates.

5. Are there any problems that you need to talk to the Head Girl or Prefects about?

6. Has your Spoiler been in contact with you about your package?
I've already received my package.

7. Have you been in contact with your Spoilee to let them know you are still with us?
I posted to the main blog that my package is on it's way to her.

Working with Uncle Vincenzio, part 2

Thursday evening I went with uncle Vincenzio to the monthly Knitters Guild meeting. They were holding their annual Vendor's Night and Potluck Supper, so his shoppe was invited there as a vendor. We brought all the color transfigured sock yarn that we have been working on. My work was very well received and many of the ladies purchased transfigured sock wool from me.

Uncle Vincenzio and I will be teaching a class on Color Transfiguration in December, so the ladies who have registered for the class were very excited to see what they will be learning. The class is already filled and we will probably be teaching a 2nd class some time in February. Another shoppe owner, who has her shoppe in Hogsmeade, asked if we would come teach our Color Transfiguration class at her shoppe next summer. So we will be looking into doing that.

Not only did we do well in sales, but the dinner was awesome. There was so much food you would think the Hogwarts kitchen elves were there. Uncle Vincenzio joked that the ladies of the guild all bring enough food to each feed an army! I was stuffed! But everything was SO good!
