Owl Mail from Guinifer LeFleur!!

Puffin, Guinifer‘s owl just delivered the most wonderful package to me today. Actually he came being held by a really nice Muggle postal worker who noticed him on her route struggling with the heavy package.  It turns out that she is a squib and loves owls as well as dogs.  So Maylee got some love from her as well and we all know labs love their attention!  Guinifer I will send Puffin back your way after he is rested, maybe if he is up to it he can fly halfway with my owl, Nate who will be bringing Stuart his package.  Here’s a picture of Puffin, isn’t he the cutest?

Well onto the goodies and bloody hell did that sweet little Hufflepuff Guinifer spoil me rotten!  She sent me some royal bamboo, yummy sheepless Slytherin Sock yarn from Whimzy Pinzy Creations and BMFA Luscious Silk!!!  I can’t help but pet the yarns and think “precious, my precious”  Lol.  She also put in an awesome Soft Touch crochet hook in 4.5mm (US G) and two Knitpicks Harmony circs in 2.25mm (US 1)!  Also Charlotte Church’s Little Box of Socks, burt’s bees lip balm (a perfect essential) some tasty Ginger Peach black Tea from Republic of Tea (it’s the black tea take on my favourite green tea!), yummy Boom Choco boom bars, a bag of orangic trail mix (get this it’s called Bear Naked!!), delcious Spicy Ginger Cookies (my favourite!!!) and a green tea bar (which is not gone, I couldn’t wait).  Last but not least she knit me a beautiful red bag and a beautiful black bow and attached to it is a dragon charm!  Thank you so much Guinifer LeFleur and I nominate you for the most glorious package ever!





Ps:  I can’t believe Maylee slept through my squeals of excitment and delight when I opened up my package.  Here’s  a picture of her taking her nap while I was talking pictures of my package.  Normally she looks at me strangely wonderfing what all the fuss is and why silly mommy is petting yarn not her.  I wonder if she play with my yarn like a cat would because she is jealous that I pet it like I pet her…


Dragon Love



This is the lace project I’m working on currently before I leave for Hogwarts. I’m not sure if I’ll finish it at home or in the Slytherin Common Room either way it’s beautiful. I love dragons, so this is the perfect thing to wear when I’m not flashing my house colours. It’s the Dragon Scale Scarf and I’m using Handmaiden Sea Silk in mineral. It’s a dream to work with so soft and I swear it gets softer, the more you knit, tink and frog it! Also you can see my beautiful stitchmarkers from zero at Etsy in Slytherin house colours. Oh did I mention the needles? They are KnitPicks Harmony size 3.25mm (US size 3) and a must have for any knitter I love the needles!! I ended up getting 32′ circs in all sock sizes plus the interchangables. If you work with bamboo, silk, soy silk or any other lovely luxury, slippery and/or spility yarn these lamented birch babies are the only way to go. Eventually I want to have two pairs of all the sock sizes (yes I use up to 3.25mm for socks — think Cascade Fixation or Elann Esprit, also perfect with my sock drug of choice Crystal Palace Panda Cotton so yummy) so I can do two socks at a time on two circs. I haven’t done that yet and really want to do so. It will help with SSS (single sock syndrome) Well back to my knitting I swear this yarn and needles give me a yarn-gasm.

What can I say I love luxury and I’m somewhat limited in the yarn choices due to being cursed with allergies. At least I’m not allergic to dragons.
EDIT: I couldn’t post this on Thursday because Blogger won’t take the pictures now it won’t take explaination marks in tags argg. damn muggles and their faulty technology
