I got here by following the trail from HSKS, and I am amazed at your answeres to this quiz. I am pretty sure it would be possible to write a fan fic with Harry, Martha, Sid, Orchids and that one other thing that I can't recall, and I am so tempted to do it! You sound like a really nice person and I look forward to getting to know you better in the kit swap. I also mostly knit with solids, but that is even my socks - I've deisgned some that seem to work out well that way. I thought it was especially cool that one thing you'd like to see in a swap would be something that told you about the person sending it.

Hope this punk swap goes well for you. I look forward to seeing you in the HSKS6! Don't forget to sign up!

Belladonna Boomslang,

Oh yeah - I wanted to tell you that you should do NaNoWriMo! I've done it three years in a row and ended up with a book every time. Not the Great American Novel, but something...
