Said Hufflepuff, "I'll teach the lot, and treat them just the same."
A well-known member was Cedric Digory, who represented Hogwarts in the most recent Triwizard Tournament. Hufflepuff students are known to be friendly, fair-minded, modest, and hard-working. Hmmmm... I think I need to work on the modest part, but the rest seems to fit.

Welcome to the Hogwarts Sock Swap. I'm a second year. I had a great swap pal and loved my Hufflepuff socks.

Your wish list includes an umbrella swift. while you're waiting, you might want to check out my blog: http://owlknits.blogspot.com
I've posted directions for a DIY swift. It's not as aesthetically pleasing as an umbrella swift, but it works and costs about $20 to make...
