I'm going to be an incoming First Year. I have been a Not Quite First Year student in the Cup. All of the players like the fantasy of being an Hogwarts student combined with a very real love of their particular fancy for fiber in various forms and colors.
All of the playing takes place in Ravelry. Rav is an online forum similar to Facebook for those who love fibers, knitting, crocheting, weaving, and dyeing, and spinning. Rav is also full of folks who are enjoying their hobbies and livlihood with others in a fun way.
I can't wait for the start of the new term. Each term runs for three months with a break month between terms. April, August, December are the break months. This is a fun game, and I'm so happy that we get to play in it.
