Spells and Potions

How exciting! Professor Wartbobble has very graciously accepted my offer of a pair of Dobby Seeker socks to be 'The Dobby Prize' at Hogwarts this year. This means I do now have to knit some! So I have drafted a plan on some parchment to guide me through as I knit. I've decided to knit the broomsticks and snitches all over each sock, except the cuff, heel and toe, which will be knitted in the main background colour of the other sock (I will have to do an hourglass heel for this to work).
I do apologise to anyone who might possibly have taken a picture of the designs I enchanted to appear at this portal yesterday - there was an error on the broomstick design, which I have now corrected with a quick piece of wand-work.
A dear friend (Fleur Crockford) asked for the spell I used to create the design. Well, I used a potion actually that uses very basic ingredients that nearly all witches and wizards have in their kit. A very kind magical friend of mine gave me the instructions and if you let your pet mouse nibble these magical words you'll find them yourself:

Oh my goodness!!!!! I have been searching high and low for this wonderful potion for years. I learned it when at Hogwarts, but it has gotten away from me over the years. I should have known to turn my sights back to the intellect of the Hogwarts students for such a potion. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your generous heart :)
