I'm So Spoiled!

Ok so I technically received my package on November 10th, but I'm a little slow in getting the pictures up. Its been a little hectic around the castle with the end of term and all. But here it is! I appologize for the bad photos, my muggle camera was giving me some trouble.

Morgana Black truly spoiled me. I came home from the muggle convention Stitches East to find this sitting by my desk:

Its a package with a tired owl sitting next to it. Before opening the package I fed the hungry owl and gave it a place to rest. Now to what was inside:

Lots of green tissue paper packages!

Needles and Notions as well as a Keychain Sock Blocker Kit.

A cowl, some handspun, a sock blank and plenty of dyes. There was also a huge package of Jelly Belly Jelly Beans! My favorite!

Thanks so much Morgana, I love it!

Something's Cookin

Well...sorta...I'm trying to get a little yarn shop started out of my dorm in the Snake Pit. Therefore, I had to sneak into the kitchen to have some space to dye up some yarn quickly. It's working out well, but I'll have to do this for a few more nights in order to get enough dyed up. Good thing I have the Maurader's Map.

Anyway...let me get back to cookin'. I'll check in a little later.

Dueling Club

So the 2nd round of dueling club started yesterday. I've been so busy dodging spells from Minerva Wood of Ravenclaw house that I almost didn't get away to blog today. But now here I am...

My socks are progressing nicely, the leg is done of the first one and I've knit the heel and turned it. Now I just need to finish the gusset, foot and toe tonight and I'll be ready for sock number two tomorrow. Either way its going to come down to the owls. My Serenity is fast and swift so I hope she'll make it there quickly. The yarn is quite lovely. Its going to be very hard to see it go, but it is a destash.

Anywhoo, I'm going back to continue dodging spells from Minerva. I'm determined to win!

I have both and I love and use them all the time.

I looooove sweets! My all time favorites are Jelly Belly Jelly Beans but I love dark chocolate too. Any type of dark chocolate makes me happy.
