My Horcrux package came from Clara via Thestrals!

Thank you so much Clara! She made a truly fantastic journal horcrux package for me and made sure that I’d be able to spilt my soul in many parts. Oh my there are so many wonderful things in my package. Beautiful journals and school books designed by Clara for when Hogwarts starts up again ( I love them all and squeed when I saw them), a beautiful cabled journal cover to protect these beautiful journals, fair isle cards and pencils, fantastic stitch markers that the talented Miss Clovenhoof made(daleks and HP, I so lurve them!), hand carved owls for my Yule tree, a wee lil’ hypo-allergenic sheep, a hello kitty towel in heart-shaped pill form, a Badz Maru sticker, Frozen Leaves (with alt. charts), Acaucania Lonco in Cornflower Blue perfect for a Frozen Leaves shawl that came in a great little yarn bag and last but, not least knit picks cables and needles.  Again thank you so much Clara for spoiling me rotten, I lurve everything!  Happily I double-checked your list and the trolls left everything in place 😉

Thank you so much Wisty for getting this kit organized and set to me 🙂 This is my angel kit from HSKS 10, the angels chose Severus Snape for my Character kit!

Ginger is almost ready to take off!

I’m so excited Intarsia’s kit is all ready to go off tomorrow with my awesome owl Ginger. I had lots of fun getting this together. A few things fell through, but overall I think it will be a great package based on…..haha it’s a secret!

Here’s a little spoiler for you Ms. Bindoff 😉
sneak peak!

Monster Mash

So I am going to be missing the Quidditch match this weekend 😦 Good luck Slytherin, let’s kick some quaffle.

I’ve been feeling pretty ill lately, probably due to the stress of N.E.W.T.S. that are coming up. I’ve been giving the weekend off and we are going to head down to Seattle for some fun and much needed perk up.

What’s on my needles. Well these cute little monsters .  Meet Charlotte (mommy monster) and Chloe.  They are almost done, they just need to be stuffed, their arms sew on and I need to get fabric glue to glue on their teeths!  I can’t wait till they are done, because I’m going to cast on for another set for Mini-me, Charlotte and Chloe are bound to Ontario to meet their new friend baby S.

Rock and Roll and Monsters with socks!

Okay well my monsters don’t have socks, but if you even knit this cute pattern then you might see monsters with socks 😉

My monsters are in the form of this super cute bag that I got from a great etsy store called piddleloop and the rock & roll is coming from my awesome new headphones!  Green and aqua, one of my favourite colour combos.  As for socks, well those are the pair of socks that I’m knitting while listening to some great tunes (Matt Costa, Tegan and Sarah, Muse, Radiohead, Jose Gonzales, Kimya Dawson and more).  Here’s a picture of what I’m talking about 🙂  The yarn is from the Whimzy Pinzy Cotton Club (hand-dyed Panda Cotton) in the Riddler colourway.

Monsters (cube monster bag), socks (sock wip) and rock & roll (my new roxy headphones)

Monsters, socks and rock & roll

Well I’m off to go get some R&R before the big game tomorrow! I am the Slytherin’s beater and wearing the #3 jersey due to the horrible accident that put our Seeker Celeena Cree, rumour has it was something to do with electricity, muggle thing called a kneetop and something blowing up. I’m not sure on the details, but I think it’s a cover for some spell that went wrong. Well I hope she is healed for the next game. Till then there is some switch-ups in our roster. It’s not a bad thing, I can put all that studying I did in Ravenclaw to good use! Go Slytherin, let’s slither our way to victory!!

Hopelessly Addicted to Audiobooks and such

My dearest Slytherins and other students.  I will be away from Hogwarts and gleefully knitting and enjoying my new love, listening to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem! by Seth Grahame-Smith and Jane Austin. This lovely little mash-up is a jaunt into an alternate world in the Regency era where the zombie apocalypse  has stricken England for more than twenty years.    The Bennett girls are well-trained in the deadly arts by Shaolin Monks and Jane Austin’s classic tale is reborn again, now with Zombies!  Purists are outraged by this delicious piece of work, but me my friends I am enthralled and probably won’t be reached till I finish listening to this wonderful tale.  Take care and please remember rule #1 to follow in Zombieland (highly recommend this movie, brillant!): Cardio. This folks is also something I am working on 😀
