HSKS6 Prize

So, I'm not home yet but my hubby just called and told me that I got a package with my HSKS6 quidditch prize (yes, he opened it... but won't tell me what's in it). I am so wanting to get the heck out of here now! What a great way to end a super busy day :)

Just because I'm bored :)

So, I'm bored and I noticed the slytherin's have a quiz posted, so I figured, why not?

  1. What are your three most favorite colors? Pink, green, blue.
  2. What are you three least favorite colors? Orange, orange and ... orange. (I know, I live in TN, land of the vols, and hate orange so I'm blasphemous but its yucky).
  3. Your favorite candy is Skittles, or Milky Way Midnight candy bars, or craisins.
  4. Draco, Lucius, or Snape? Draco
  5. Do you knit, crochet, or both? Both
  6. What type of kit did you ask for? A bag kit
  7. Acrylic—has its uses, should all be burned, best yarn to work with (choose one)? Has its uses... I use acrylic blends a lot because if I'm making a huge project, its more economical to use at least an acrylic blend.
  8. Who is the Slytherin Head Girl this term? Quinn?
  9. Name four “extras” you would love to receive in your kit. Hmmm, I haven't really thought about it. I like handmade things and surprises :)

  14. Dpns, circular, or straight? Depends on the project but for most things, I use circs.
  15. What yarn makes you squee? Malabrigo... or Noro... I've never owned / used either though. I do like to 'pet' them when I visit my LYS.

  17. Favorite HP character? Luna Lovegood
  18. Who was your first choice for DADA professor? Eh, didn't really have a preference.
