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 :(

Long Weekends over

Ahh, the long weekend is over and kids are back in school. This weekend was really nice, Family Day was yesterday here so we spent the day just hanging out with the kids. Hubby was off but was back on nights last night, always good for him to have a short work week.

On the knitting front, nothing to report. With all the free time I had I managed to make one hat for my little guys stuffed monkey, lol. Kids had fun and didn't want to head back to school today :(

Since Family Day isn't a Federal Holiday here in Canada I still got mail and woot, I received a super sweet package I've been waiting for for my HSKS4 and Hogwarts Sock Kit pals. Hehe, I can't wait to get these babies mailed out :)

Time to pick up my little guy from school.

Just wanted to flash a pic of the character based(Cho Chang) yarn I picked up for my pal. I loved it so much I had to get a matching skein even tho I'm not a Ravenclaw. Isn't it pretty :)

I went on a field trip to the Muggle Hospital on Tuesday with my little guy and ended up with a muggle sickness, laryngitis. Couldn't believe it, so I made a trip to Madame Pomphrey and hopefully her elixir will have me well in no time. So, to keep me occupied today I've decided to cast on a pair of mittens for one of my little guys. Right now we are a bit warm but things are supposed to change on the weekend, ugghh.

Time to get some knitting done before picking up the little ones for lunch.

Got my Pal for the Hogwarts sock swap

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.
