I've been spoiled!

Today is a dreary wet day, and I've a bit of a cold. But look! Andromache Tonks has spoiled me!

The box is opened to reveal a lovely note and some very nice stitch markers and

And here's the haul

What an amazing spoiler! Peaches and cream in a sunny fun color, and the Opal sock in Dumbledore (squee!) that I'd been wanting. A handsewn bag (love the colors!) and a GORGEOUS crocheted bag. Tasty snacks include yogurt covered gummi bears and peppermint bark (love it), some personalized bookplates, and a long Addi lace for making two at a time socks/magic loop. And patterns, including Elphine which I'd been wanting to do, and toe up cast on and knitting two at a time sock info. And the Magic Mirror socks! I'd not seen that patt before but it looks like fun. And those beads - I'm looking forward to what those will become.

Thanks so much Andi!! You're the best. I've sent your Owl back to Portland.

Sad, unfortunate boy

Rufus says he beat me. The photo has no hands modelling the mitts. And we already know he's a lying liar. And we're supposed to trust him. I don't think so.

Interested in trying again? A rematch? Hermione's cable and bobble hat.
Are you "man" enough to bring it? Are you, Rufus?

My FO, headed your way. And there might be a slight enhancement to the mitts, but you'll have to wait and see, won't you?

And leave Tia alone. She doesn't deserve you.

Muggle Studies Field Trip

Off for a bit of a Muggle Studies field trip (I love field trips!) to a city called Baltimore for something called Stitches East. A few other Hogwarts students will there too.

I have a list and budget. Let's hope I can stick to them.
