Welcome to HSKS9!

On behalf of my co-coordinator Wisteria Lovegood, please let me be the first to officially welcome you to season nine of HSKS!! This season has begun most splendidly and here are a few facts you might be surprised to hear about the players on our Quidditch Teams.
  • Players from eight countries
  • Players from 24 of the 50 states
  • Beaders, Crocheters, Dyers, Knitters, Needle workers, Pattern Designers, Sewers and Spinners!
  • Over 10 Birthdays to celebrate
  • Quidditch players in their first season (a.k.a HSKS newbies) as well as seasoned players who have been in 6 or more terms/seasons of HSKS.
  • Quidditch players born in the 1950's, 1960's, 1970's, 1980's and 1990's.
  • Over 1000 completed projects combined!
  • Enough yarn combined between us all to circle the earth many many times!
You might be thinking "Wow, really? I didn't know that!" Well, now you get to find out who some of these people are!

Your First Blog Assignment is to get to know your fellow Quidditch Players.

Find the following people among players on your and the other teams. (Each person can only be listed once.)
  1. Someone with the same craft as you (either those listed above or another one).
  2. Someone who was born in the same month.
  3. Someone from a different country.
  4. A new HSKS Quidditch player.
  5. A player who has been in 3 or more HSKS swaps.
  6. A player who has a bigger stash than you! (And if your stash is the biggest, proudly say so!)
  7. A player who both knits and crochets.
  8. Someone who has the same favorite color as you.
Once you have found these eight people, do one of the following as a way of introducing yourself.
  • Comment on one of their blog postings. Say hello and a little tidbit about yourself.
  • Comment on one of their finished or "WIPs" projects on Ravelry.
Then, when you are all done, write about your getting-to-know-them adventures on your blog. This will fulfill your blog posting for this week and you have until midnight Pacific Standard Time on Saturday to do so.

Questions? Please feel free to post a comment here so the question can be answered for all to see. We love questions you know, ask away!

I cannot wait to see who shares what with whom! And who knows, maybe we'll have even more nifty statistics to add to the list.

Oh P.S., More date information and deadlines will be posted tomorrow.
