Hsks5 - Dueling club + bag design

Im prepering for the sock duel next weeak, this is what I kno from the daily prophet: Im fild up with nerves, there are some serius knitters among us... I hope to last more than one round.

Dueling Club
The yarn type and needle size will be released on Thursday, May 22nd.
These are the people that I have in the club.
Sock Bracket:

My good friends!I worked the graveyard job Tuesday night (switched with someone), went to the day job yesterday, walked into my house after coming home last night and promptly fell asleep for the next 11 hours!!! Of course, I woke up twice to go to the restroom, but can you believe it??? And in the middle of the week too! So, as I prepare to go back to work I figured that I must get the specifications out to the Dueling Club if nothing else this morning. Don't forget! The pattern will not be released until next week. Today is only for the tools.

Sock Bracket Tools
100 gm sock yarn. Fleece Artist's Merino Sock yarn suggested, but not mandatory. Any sock yarn with 28-30 stitch gauge is fine.
1 set of 2.5 mm double-pointed needles.
Stitch holderColor variations on both patterns do no really matter. The hat pattern has cables, so I would suggest a solid color yarn or else it's hard to see the cable pattern. Don't worry if you haven't done cables before. It's not too hard and they are always a good technique to master :)

Note: I am adding to more names to the sock bracket. Sign ups for the Dueling Club are closed.

Just a picture of my Hufflepuff bag, hope that I can get it done by the 30. of may

hsks5 - bag design contest on Ravelry

For et stykke tid siden strikkede jeg denne taske som Tove Fejrø har designet (mønsteret kan købes i Bettedesign). Nu var det bare sådan at jeg var vild med hele ideen i tasken, men endte med at ændre en del (der der kender tasken kan tydeligt se ændringerne).

Og nu har jeg strikket endnu en, med endnu flere ændringer, som en del af en så kaldt Hksk5 taske design konkurence. Min taske er til Ravenclaw huset.
Jeg kalder mønsteret mit, men med stor inspiration fra Tove, derfor er hun både nævnt her og i mønsteret du finder over under mine opskrifter Ravenclaw bag

Tasken er lynhurtigt strikket, det tager omkring 3 Harry Potter film, så er den i hus, altså lige bortset fra filtningen i maskine og stencil trykket.

Sometime ago I knitted the green bag. The pattern is an altred version of Tove Fejrø's bag "Taske med læg" for those who know it, the alterations is easy to se.

Now I have been knitting yet another bag, this time with evan more alterations. Now i think it is my design, but by grate inspration from Tove Fejrø.

The bag is for the Ravenclaw house. Im making it for the Hsks5 bag design contest on Ravelry.

Get the pattern here

The bag is wery easy to knit, it take about 3 Harry Potter Movies, and then there is the felting and the stencil... But the knitting is fast.

Reducio sock - mini sock swap

I've got my mini sock swap paggede to day, the pour owl have been on the way for days, all the way from Virginia in the US.

There were 3 paggeges and a nice letter from Ophelia, aka Jeffifer Walter, who also is in the Hsks5 swap, she is in the house of Slytherin, how fun is that ;)

This is what she have been spoling me with, a nice Hufflepuff hous sock, the most tightly knitted sock I have ever seen, it is so perfect, then there is a tiny sheep for a keychain, and a bee tape measure, it is so cool... There were also some Harry Potter sweets, I don't think we have this in Denmark, love to taste it!

then there is the card, the sweetest card made by her just for me, and with love...

This is more than I have ever thougth that I woud get, I got no words, other than it is the most perfect gift.

Thank you for sending me all this nice stuff!

Hsksawp 5 - my spoiler

I do not think that I rembered to mention the person spoling me this semester on Hagwarts, it is
Miranda Moonstone from the Ravenclaw house, I love the look on her blog you should tjeck it out.

Then there is the person whom I get to spoil Emma Wigworthy I have mentiont her, the reson that I am mention her agin is that she is designing the coolest bag, you have to go to her site to tjeck it out.

Taske design - bag design

Jeg har intet billede at vise endnu, jeg er i gang med et taskedesign, endnu en konkurence gennem Hogwarts-verdenen. Jeg designer to tasker en til Hufflepuff, der er til at samle opskrift prints i, og en til min pakkeven Spinningmaid (Emma), der er a Ravenclaw huset. Denne vil jeg først have fokus på, designet er inspireret at Tove Fejrø's taske med vandrette læg. Den bliver strikket i en blå-gylden kauni, og senere filted i maskine. Billede kommer først på bloggen, når tasken er sendt afsted, og opskriften er skrevet. Dette skulle gerne ske i løbet af ugen.

I have no pictures to show yet. Im designing some Hogwarts house bag's one for the house of Hufflepuff and one for the house of Ravenclaw, Inspered by the Tove fejrø design for a bag, Im knitting it in a blue and golden kauni, and then felting it. The Ravenclaw bag i for my spoilerfrind Spinningmaid (Emma) and thats the design that will be in focus this week. Pictures and pattern will be releced this week.

Hskswap 5 - my swap frind

To day I got to know who it is im going to spoil for the next months... Its Ann Kingston akk spinningmaid, one of my favroit sock designers from GB West Yorkshire to be correct. If you, like me are in to the Harry Potter knitting fun, her patters are so unick and absolutly gorgeus.
Im thinking, how in the world am I giong to spoil her... Uhh it takes grate preperrations... I'll better get to it... She is a Ravenclaw, a fabuless sock knitter, a mother, a brittan, full of great humor, kind, helpfull... She deserves the best.

Og så lige på dansk, nogle tænker måske - hvad har hun nu gang i... Ganske kort, jeg har meldt mig til en Hogwards strikke bytte forkæle leg, der forløber over de næste par månder. Bloggen vil bære tydeligt præg deraf. Derfor bliver alt hvad der har med emnet at gøre titlet med HKSWAP5, hvis alt det her Harry Potter strikke sjov, ikke er noget for dig... OG er du som mig lidt tosset med Harry Potter, så læs med, der kommer til at ske en masse sjov.
Jeg skal igennem hele forløbet forkæle Ann Kingston sokkedesigner fra England, bedre kendt som spinningmaid, hendes side og opskrifter er værd at tjekke ud. Fat Dankortet og gør dig klar, for du vil EEEELSKE hendes opskrifter...

Nyd det gode danske forsommer vejr :)

Livstykke skokker by Geilsk og Beckmann

Min kære veninde Heidi har sammen med Bente lavet opskriften til disse fantastiske sokker, som jeg nu har fået på pindene. De er en sand førnøjelse at strikke... Siden jeg på strikke festival i Næstved lånte blusen af Karen har jeg vidst jeg en dag ville strikke den... Nu er jeg startet med at strikke sokkerne, men blusen kommer helt sikkert også på pindene.

My dear frind Heidi have together with Bente made a pattern for these amasing Livsstykke sokker (socks). They are a dream to knit, and fast aswell. At the knitting festival in Nestved, I borroed Karens cardigan (livsstykketrøjen), at that time I knew that I just had to knit it some day. Now Im knitting the socks, and soon I'll be knitting the cardigan aswell.
