I’ve seen a similar post on tumblr but I just loved it so much I made my own version!
remind me of Gryffindor.
furniture, Tartan blankets, Lancashire hotpot, putting pinecones on a fire to
make colourful flames, hiking, ‘Sparks Fly’ by Taylor Swift, Cadbury’s
chocolate, being spontaneous, winning at a sport, grand castles, history, knitted
jumpers, action movies, breaking records, drinking songs, ghost chillies, rapturous
applause, bonfires, long long hugs.
remind me of Ravenclaw.
versions of pop songs, moleskine diaries, LED fairy lights, costume dramas,
charity shop books, badge collections, postcards from obscure places, gin and
lemonade, broadsheet newspapers, corsets, twitter, libraries, big cities, Shakespeare,
tote bags, old maps, scrapbooks, winking, avocado, sarcasm, ballet dancers, museums,
opening your mind.
remind me of Hufflepuff
cookies, the feeling of changing out of wet clothes into dry ones, shepherd’s
pie, Oliver! the musical, hugging a dopey dog, hot baths, crotchet cushions, red
wine, button boxes, picnics, wooly hats, long plaits, small towns, slipper
boots, vintage dresses, inspirational quotes, holding hands for an hour or
more, classic movies, pumpkin pie, broad smiles.
remind me of Slytherin
chains, black eyeliner, suspenders, frosted grapes, leather jackets, An
Inspector Calls, stroking cats, slow subtle jazz, smoky eyeshadow, silk
lingerie, Lorde, frosty windows, church bells, political debate, Wuthering
Heights, stargazing, affectionate insults, French manicures, white wine, sheepskin
rugs, evening dresses with a slit up the side, feeling self-satisfied.
I did it. It was a lot of work, but for you all, it was worth it! I have finally got the pattern for my basic knitted action figures out of my head and down into an actual pattern. As Knitpool says above:
Have I got a deal for you!
For only $5 [US Dollars], I will sell you this Secret
Formula for Cloning People.
Please email to Knitpool@gmailcom for payment
Purchasers will receive:
-a PDF of the secret formula
-any future corrections and updates
-guidance on any tricky bits (within reason – I
can’t push a button and
an expert knitter.)
Although you are evil scientists, don’t also be douchebags and distribute this
formula without my permission. That sort of thing really disappoints Cap.”
PS If you are from Virginia I may have to charge sales tax. Finally, please allow at least 24 hours for me to respond.
I’ve been sitting in a draughty gazebo knitting a Knitpool ™ action figure while waiting for my daughter to be done playing with her friends and come home from school.
A constant stream of curious 5 yr olds hasn’t done my progress any harm and he’s coming along well. Since I’m knitting outdoors I saved up the fiddlier jobs like stuffing, or sewing up the feet until I got home but then had to do it while being interrupted by my 5 yr old and her Disney Princesses.
Which was fine - apart from one thing. He’s come out a little erm… excessive… in the ah… gentleman’s area (and quite distinctly dresses to the left).
Okay, I admit it. He’s borderline porn star material.
I want to keep knitting him after school tomorrow but I’m really not sure what the other parents present might make of my doll and his generous portion so I had to come up with a solution.
Pick out my stitching? try and poke about with the blunt end of a crochet hook to see if I can reshape things?
Nah. emergency underpants.
So now I have a figure who doesn’t even have a head yet but does own a natty pair of purple flowery boxer shorts.
