July 2011-Already!!!!

Wow this year is going fast.  So much is happening in Muggle life and regular life.  Well in April we finally made it to the Wonderful Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal in Florida. OMG! it was soooo much fun. This has also been my Summer of Ravelry. In June, Mr. Pettigrew and I went up to San Franciso for the day and met up with Knottyred, a Ravelry heart sister, who was down from Canada. In August, we are going to Boston where I will meet up with more Ravelry heart sisters.  It's been a fun Summer.

And all of my Hogwarts groups are going into full swing.  HSKS is taking an extended hiatus, maybe permanent-kinda sad.  But HLBOE is getting started and I am Head of House once again.  We have a new term at Hogwarts at Ravelry with a new headmistress and I remain a Prefect.  And I am hoping to jump back into Reducio sock swap and I have finally joined the HP house cup group, which I have contemplated joining for some time now.

Oh and only 14 more days till the final Harry Potter movie comes out, but soon Pottermore will begin. Yes I am still a geek. I love my knitting and my Harry Potter, but it keeps me sane.

So Happy Weekend Muggles and Magical Friends.

It's almost that time again!

Well HSKS has finished and we are taking a hiatus until Spring but HLBOE is getting revved up and ready to go. This year I will be head of house for Gryffindor. There are only three of us in our house but that's okay, we'll be a busy three. Three Musketeers we will be.  This year's theme is something for the kitchen. Can't wait to get started.

It came, It came!!!!!

Oh my goodness, the most awesome package was on my front porch today from Acromantula (daisymum)  Look at all the awesomeness. First off everything was in a Gryffindor bag and inside was some lovely yarn, a needle case, a small project bag and a mesh bag with soap. And needles and notions. So many circular and round items to represent Tom Gaunt's ring. I love all of it and don't even know where to start...... Oh, Oh and do you see the popcorn, chocolate, tea and coffee.

Here is a close-up of the needle case all opened up it is so totally awesome and all my favorite colors.

Acromantula did such an awesome job stalking me.  You don't even know.  Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!!!!

Wool, Wool, and more Wool

Well I finally started the hand-made item. I needed to buy wool as I am doing a felted project and I still didn't find all the right colors. But I did get enough to get it started.  Once I get past the set-up phase then I am hoping it will go quickly as I am getting down to the wire.  But I will get it done. I don't sleep much :-) and I am really hoping she will like it.

Time Flies.............

Whew crazy busy times,  Muggle life so get's in the way, but things are starting to fall together. I am hoping to make the early send period for sending out my package, but if not it will be real soon there after. I think I have finally decided on something felted. Don't want to reveal too much but if it is half as nice as I envision then it will be perfect.  Well off to knit.

Wow we are almost at the half-way mark

We are at the half-way mark and things are plugging along. I still haven't decided on Ambyr's hand-made item but I have all the other stuff coming along quite nicely I think. Gonna stalk some more before I make a final decision. 

Well I lost the duel by about an hour, but I was forced to try a pattern that has been on my to-do list for quite sometime now and I think it came out quite cute. Definitely one I will try again.

Well off to do some stalking.

Wow! another Week has gone by

Another week and I still haven't made a final decision on my handmade item for Ambyr. Oh, all of the rest is coming along nicely but as for the hand-made item, still not sure which way I wanna go. I have about three or four different ideas. May do more than one.

Well it's a three day weekend and Hubby and I are going to the Huntington Gardens and Library on Monday and I am hoping to get some inspiration.
