Because I wasn't thinking...

I have a great idea for Reducio- A Very Weasley Christmas now that I already sent my package and he has received it.  I wish I would have made homemade Christmas Crackers. 

You know, of the greatest things about the second book (Chamber of Secrets) Christmas is that everyone sat at one table and had crackers.  Snape received a witch's hat with a vulture uncanny similar to Neville's bogart.  I can just imagine Mrs. Weasley making her own Christmas Crackers for her kids.  I could have knitted mini mice, mini bonnet, and added muggle sweets.

I am kicking myself in the rear end now.  At the time, I was pretty brain dead.  I did Harry's First Christmas which is not very Weasley other than his emerald green sweater. 


I think I shall make some for me because it is too good of an idea to waste.

Weekly Post

I am posting for HSKS Quidditch.  Not too much going on other than Holiday knitting and Charity knitting.  I have 15 hats for Arkansas Children's Hospital Knitting for Noggins.  I am going to call it quits for this time.  I am running out of scrappy bits of yarn!

I am finishing up my daddy's Democratic Donkey today.  I have the donkey itself finished.

I worked on my Op Art blanket last night.  I think I am half way now.

I am signing off until next time.  Happy Thanksgiving!

Angel Package

Here is the package I sent to Mandy.  She did not receive a package in the first HLBOE so I volunteered to put one together for her.

 This is accurate except for I gave her 3 skeins of Plymouth Magnum yarn, one was stuck in the box.

Curlatrix Black (Devotion2Knit on Ravelry) made this cute little project bag for Mandy.

I made her Owling Mitts

I also made a Hermione hat because last time it was hats.  I am trying to populate the world with these!

The list-

Owling mitts
Hermione hat
Curlatrix's bag
3 skeins of Plymouth Magnum yarn
2 skeins of Cascade Fixation
tea (gee, I don't remember what kind)
Godiva hot chocalate
wand pen
gadget bag
tape measure
AND her very own mini Sirius Black.
