I am so excited, my swap partner’s yarn came today and it is beautiful, Carrie did a beautiful job on it. I wish I could keep it, but that is not happening, I am only waiting on the book that I ordered for her and my kit will be ready to go. I wonder how much it costs to send a package to Wales. . .

I do not think I will join the next swap; it takes too much time from knitting and other stuff, though it has been a great deal of fun. I wonder how Jenean has time to do this, because she spend a lot of time setting the swap up and putting the Quidditch stuff out for the participants.

I am very tired tonight, my poor kitty, Onyx, kept me awake last night with her crying, she was just spayed and declawed and I have never had a cat cry so much after having this done before. I now feel so bad, that I am carrying her everywhere she wants to go, what a sap I am.

I want to knit today, so this is brief. I give up on looking for the Snitch, who can figure it out? I don’t even know where I am supposed to look to find it. The person I bought the sock yarn for my partner in the swap from is in Gryffindor, Carrie, what a coincidence. The yarn she dyed is beautiful; I cannot wait to touch it.

I am currently working on a dishcloth, and it is very pretty, but I am feeling the urge to do socks. So today, I am going to work on big black socks for SFS and a pair for my daughter. Dinner (shredded pork burritos) is in the crock-pot, so I am off to knit. Have a great weekend!

I am so bad, I have a hard time keeping up with a blog, and I wasn’t sure, when I started if I would be able to, but I am trying. I have ordered my swap partner’s yarn, needles, stitch holders and a few other goodies. I am not quite sure what all to put I the kit, but I am making her a Booga bag, which is almost done. I took the bag with me last night when I went to the FOX Theater to see Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and knitted while waiting for the show to start. I am using the blue and gray colors since those are the only ones I could find near enough to Ravenclaw colors. I hate not have a LYS near me, and I refuse to drive 50 miles in heavy traffic for anything. It is a good thing I like the internet shopping because I would have no clothes if I didn’t, which is a scary thought.

Quidditch starts this week, I have never taken part in this before, and this is my first HSKS swap, so I am anxious to see how it works. Gryffindor is in the lead right now, but that can change quickly.

I have frogged a pair of socks that I am making for my daughter a couple of times now and I am getting very irritated with ??? myself and the pattern. I have been using Knitpicks Dancing on them and they have a climbing rose pattern up both sides and it is a beautiful pattern, but I tend to get lost (or sidetracked) when I am doing it. I may just put them away for a while and start them again when I have more patience (if that ever happens).
