The Round 2 Duel hat is on its way to Olive B...

Hopefully, my owl doesn't get lost and gets there in time for me to advance to the next round!
The hat came out really cute. It is pretty and very soft.

Duel #2

I made it through the first duel! Although it was a bit by default because my partner dropped out of the swap. She and I are still swapping the hats that we made. I actually ended up making 2 of them anyway.

I am hoping that I will be able get started on my hat for this next duel this weekend. Hopefully, I can pull out a win because I think I am the last hope for a Gryffindor winner in the knitted hat category.

Wish me luck fellow Gryffindors!

Hogsmead and Homework

I have been so busy with my work that I haven't been able to post my scrolls until today.

  • Unfortunately, I am too busy today to go to Hogsmeade. (Darn, Professor Snape and his extra long essay assignments) But if I was able to go I would definitely have stopped in to Zonko's to get some gag gifts, Honeyduke's for some sweets and the Three Broomsticks to cap off the day with some warm butterbeer! YUM! Oh well, hopefully I'll be able to catch up on my work and go on the next trip.
