Hi, I have been reading away and hopefully catching up with all you industrious readers :) I have been thinking a lot about what I want to knit though as my next project when my Yule gloves are done. I was thinking of socks, house elf socks, with all my left over yarns...but then I saw the socks in the new Knitty called Quill and, well, it just struck a cord with me. How Potter-ish :) I'm not sure they are what I will end up knitting but I am in a real mood ofr socks right now so who knows...

Hope everyone is well and happy. I have been having so much fun reading all the posts and commenting like a mad thing! Have a great week!

I had the same feeling about Quill! It really made me think of the books for a reason I can't quite figure out.
How weird!

Hilariously clever!
I think next month I will dye some yarn green - for PS2 - and knit up some Poisoned Quill socks.
Thanks for the brilliant idea!
Likely we think of it because of the reporter (whose name escapes me) who figures so largely in Books 4 & 5. And Quills are such romantic tools for writing. I have always wanted to use one.

Oooo, I love that connection. Those socks are fab (and thank you Knitty for so many socks patterns in one issue!). Thanks for the thought!

mmm, when I saw them, I immediately thought of mean ole dorothy forcing HP to write lines with his quill, so I will either do them in black for ink or red for blood. but, then I am wicked that way.
