Homework again

Slytherin House Quiz


Chapter 10, The House of Gaunt starts off with Harry's successful week in Slughorn's Potions class thanks to the book he was using that once belonged to the "Half Blood Prince."

Harry also started his private lessons with Dumbledore which entails going back in time through memories of others in the Pensieve to discover as much about Voldemort as they can and why he tried to kill Harry when he was a year old.

The first memory was that of Bob Ogden, a member of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement and his run in with the Gaunt family many years ago. Harry finds out the Gaunt family was the last living descendants of Salazar Slytherin and gets his first look at two of the items that will be used as "hocruxes". The Slytherin locket that is worn by Merope, Voldemort's Mother and the Peverell ring worn by Mr. Gaunt, Voldemort's Grandfather...the one Dumbledore has in his office. Tom Riddle Sr., Voldemort's Father, is also seen in this memory and Harry finds out how the relationship between Tom and Merope came about.

Saturday, October 4, 2008


I just got back from Hogsmeade and what a blast I had. First stop was Gladrags for a pair of black Dragon hide boots that I've been wanting for some time now. I also found a cool pair of socks, yes I had to buy socks... with all the homework we have I haven't found the time to knit a pair for myself.

Then I popped into Honeydukes. I have been craving chocolate frogs and chocoballs all week so I picked up a big bag of those along with some sugar quills, licorice wands and fizzing whizbees. I sampled some fudge and it was delightful.

The last stop of the day was the Three Broomsticks to meet up with my fellow Slytherins and have a few butterbeers before heading back to Hogwarts. The Three Broomsticks was wall to wall Hogwarts students, if someone wanted to get some firewhiskey without anybody noticing that would have been the time to do it. Not that I would or anything *wink*

Your result for The Harry Potter Husband Test...

Mrs. Weasley Twin

Your perfect HP man is Fred and/or George Weasley.

Laughter is important to you. You want a guy who's never boring, who can always put a smile on your face, and who can pull the best of pranks and never get caught. Or possibly two such guys. Because let's face it, they're pretty much a two-fer. You get one, you get both. Even if one of them's only a friend, he'll still be around so much you'll feel like you're married to him, too. Sure, they may not seem like the most mature guys in the world, in a traditional sense, but just ask them about their business plan. When they drive you nuts by relentlessly testing their latest inventions on you, you can console youself with that huge stack of cash and dragon-leather jacket. Besides, you know you're powerless against those stereo smiles.

Thank you Holly for the beautiful socks and goodies. They are absolutely gorgeous and fit wonderfully. She also included a pattern for mittens and the yarn and addis to make them plus a wonderful Slytherin notebook, Go Slytherin!

I've got a new pal for HSKS3 and the best news is I'm knitting for Hufflepuff now! Woot!! This is awesome cause I originally was hoping for a Hufflepuff pal since that was the only house I haven't had yet. I just cast on for the new bag, my Ravenclaw bag will be gifted to a good friend of mine who has a birthday coming up very soon as had her eye on it for sometime :) I've also found some awesome yarn for my new pal and since he loves all sock yarn I was able to get a little creative in my purchase. I've also picked up the needles, hehe, hardcore shopping but I so needed it. I've been so good on my yarn purchases but may be tempted into purchasing Yarn Pirate's Booty Club, hmmm, very tempting.

On the home front, the boys are pretty much over their infections and went to school all week and are almost done their medication. It was nice, a few hours of quiet, hehe. Today is my Hubby's 39th birthday, wow, almost the big 40. My birthday is next week and my HSKS 3 pal Selina sent me a gift certificate to Elann. I was on their website for a few hours last night trying to decide what to buy. I'm thinking yarn for a sweater or tank since I've never made one for myself before. Since November I've lost 35lbs and I think I'm due for a sweater or even tank :) I've got more weight to lose but man does it feel good to have that weight gone and I've got a waist, rofl.

Well, time to get hubby's birthday stuff going, have a few things to pick up for supper tonight.

Well, my bag is complete and most of my goodies I have ordered online have arrived. I'm still waiting on one thing in particular that I would love my pal to have. Trying to find any Harry Potter related items(other than books) here is like pulling teeth, ugghh. Thanks to online shopping it has been a dream, just the waiting for customs to clear my stuff is a pain, Muggle Mail, ugghh!

On the knitting front, I've casted on to my Hogwarts Sock pal's socks and I'm loving it. I'll post pics once I get more of the sock completed. I'm also thinking of a sock pattern to write up honoring the Slytherin House :)

Well, time to get back to the boys, they are sick this week. Not looking good for me either :(

I went on a field trip to the Muggle Hospital on Tuesday with my little guy and ended up with a muggle sickness, laryngitis.

Woot, got my pal for the Hogwarts sock swap 3. I will be knitting for another Gryffindor and I can't wait. Hmmmm, I'm thinking of using a pattern I've dreamed up that needs to be tested. I'll be picking some yarn up from a vendor in Diagon Alley from the HSKS 4 swap but I'm thinking no stripes this round. There's so many decisions but beads have been purchased already for my Gryffindor pal as well as for my Ravenclaw pal for HSKS 4. I'll get to those this weekend.

Time to make supper for the Black crew.

Bag Update

Hey, sorry for the late post. RL and Potter life haven't mixed to well the last couple of weeks.

So, here I am and my bag is half done, yarn is bought in a gorgeous custom colorway for my pal. I'm hoping she likes it, it is based on a character from the book :) For my bag I'm using the Patons Soy Wool and it is knitting up so well. I'll post pics in a bit, right now blogger is being a little finicky.

I've also joined another swap, hehe. The Hogwarts sock swap 3 is up and since I had enjoyed the previous 2 rounds I've signed up again. I'm thinking of designing my own sock pattern for this one :)

In Slytherin you'll makeyour real friends,
Those cunning folk use any
To achieve their ends.

There is no good and evil,
there is only power and
those too weak to seek it.

I got my Pal

*Woot* I got my pal for the HSKS swap and I'm knitting for a Ravenclaw.

I'm in the progress of picking the bag pattern or maybe designing one. Decisions, decisions.... I think I will include one of my sock designs for her package. I also have needle shopping, bead shopping for the stitchmarkers and the ever so fun, yarn shopping ;) I'll be checking the sellers on Diagon Alley over the next few weeks scouring the shops for the perfect yarn.

As for myself, I am going to start rereading the HP books and probably watch the 5th movie again, hehe. Maybe I'll even get my socks I casted on a few weeks ago finished. I'm using Colinette Jitterbug in Lagoon, just a basic sock pattern.

Time to feed the Black clan.
