What a week

Where to start, Since I didn't have enough to do I took over the Hogwarts Sock Swap. I am up to my neck in paper work with no spells to help! 2 weeks ago I fell down my basement stairs trying to find my wand one of the boys had it down there trying out new spells on his brother. After a trip to St Mungos they told me it wasn't broken, I wasn't so sure I thought it very much was, so a trip to a different healer was in order. and guess what it is broken and there is not enough skele-grow to fix it so they put me in a muggle cast for 6 weeks!! Can you believe it a muggle cast! So now I can only get to my computer for short periods of time. The only good thing is that I will get a lot of studying and knitting done!! Happy knitting!!

House quiz

Hogwarts, Hogwarts,

Hoggy Warty HogwartsTeach us something,
pleaseWhether we be old and bald,
Or young with scabby knees,
Our heads could do with filling,
With some interesting stuff,
For now they're bare and full of air,
Dead flies and bits of fluff,
So teach us things worth knowing,
Bring back what we've forgot,
Just do your best, we'll do the rest
And learn until our brains all rot.

I got my wand!!

Wood type: apple
Length: 11 inches
Core: Gryffon Feather

get your own wand!


I recived an owl over the weekend, my letter contained my HSKS swap pal's info so exciting. My pal is a Ravenclaw. I have been putting things together for her owl and I am torn between dying her yarn for her speical or trying to find ravenclaw colors that I like. And then theres the bag Dobby was cleaning up the common room this morning and I asked his opinion. He thought that I should make a big bag in her house colors so she can travel to Diagon Alley and not have to use shopping bags. I think that this is a good idea any opinions? Hope you all are having a great day!! Happy knitting!
