Quizzes galore

Gosh - I'm feeling a little overwhelmed by all the quizzes I have to do at the moment. As well as the HSKS regulars I now also have weekly History of Magic homework for the Knitting and Crochet House Cup (I have to send my answers for that to the Professor each week), and a photo challenge to complete before Wednesday. So I'm struggling time-wise.

What makes it all especially difficult is that I've now finished the Hogwarts Socks for my middle little wizard and am busy writing the pattern up for sale. I've got a photo I'll post after the quizzes - it's not great because the purple colour of the cuff and foot has come out blue in the pic due to dodgy work with an over-flashy wand I think. I'll have to get a better picture for the pattern. The text says 'Never Tickle A Sleeping Dragon', which you all should know is the Hogwarts school motto!
