the great hat a thon!

so to pass the time between terms(and to clean out my insane stash) I'm making a challenge to myself to knit or crochet a hat a day(or every other day depending on how busy I get)
Technically I'm on day three but I only have two hats...

end of term sad/happy face

I can't believe it's nearly over! Congrats to all the package winners and an extra huzzah to all my puffs for coming in first with House points!
I can't wait for the next term! I miss the classes, common room and students, Quidditch and everything else aleady.

and on unrelated side notes, I finished Neverwhere, which means I'm in great need of some book recommendations, so if anyone knows any that can hold me over until the next term starts...

and I've started a project with one of the gorgeous skeins Centy sent me in my package, it's the springtime in Philadelphia hat and I love it already
I had to stop cause I'm a few yards short of what he pattern called for but I found a store online that has the yarn so I should be done soon.

work can just wait...

Finally! after many restarts to admit and a lot and I mean A LOT of intense studying of other's works in progress and finished results and rereading all the advice I got...

I was so excited that I couldn't wait to make it the right length so I made it a normal headband(though now that I'm in the loop over what to do, I'm sure I'll make another one that can be worn in varying ways)

and an artsy shot of me in it, even though it's a little cut off, I wanted an "action" shot

and on a side note, I finished Pink Carnation slightly disappointed but now I can focus on Neverwhere which I've yet to hear anything bad about.

two weeks?!

Firstly, Ursula rocks!! she caught the snitch during the finale game last saturday and it's been a celebration ever since!! so excited! can't wait for the finale feast...
no wait! i can! cause that means the term is almost over and i don't want it to be!

an update...sort of

I must be the slowest Puff ever cause I'm still, yes still having yarn wrapping problems with my dream swatch. sigh. and I'm getting a little discouraged, even putting it to the side and picking up other projects. which I don't want to do and try to keep myself going by looking at everyone's finished work hoping it will make determined to figure this out.

Hufflepuff Quiz #6

Lucky some one on one time with the Professor. I think if he told me he was even slightly impressed by my work this term I'd turn to a puddle of melted jelly slugs.
But anywhoo! onto the quiz...

1) What is a Chimaera?
A very dangerous creature with a lion's head, a goat's body, and a dragon's tail.

2) Name 3 of the 4 breeds of Winged Horses.
Thestral, Abraxan, Aethonan, thestral and Granian,

3) What are Yeti afraid of?

4) How does a wizard rid a farm of a Nogtail?
Chase it off with a pure white dog.

5) Why are Fwoopers sold with a silencing charm?
Because their Fwooper's singign will drive the listener insane.

6) Where are Erklings found?

7) Name the only spell known to repel a Lethifold.
The always effective Patronus Charm.
(Bonus if you can name the wizard who survived a Lethifold attack)

a checklist of things to do...

okay, really only one thing is "need to do" which is this week's Defense Against the Dark Arts homework. I really want to do well this weeks seeing as I've become a bit of a nervous klutz around a certain professor...luckily I have the chocolate from my kit to keep me calm, will probably sneak a few bites in when the Professor's not looking.

other things..
finally finished Time Traveler's Wife...I cried, though I can't decide if I loved the book or want to slap a few of the characters...
Now onto reading Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman cause I noticed that I've been reading far too many Regency era books even for my obsessive love of them.

think I figured out the problem with my dream swatch head scarf(after reading other people's posts about it)I'm a tight really tight.I'm always short on guge no matter what I do and this wrapping around the needle needs to be really loose, and my wraps just refuse to let go of the needle and when they do I let too much go and lose all the loops.
Will try again, and continue to try and find some kind of tutorial that will get me out of my "tigh knitting conundrum"

Saturday, July 5, 2008


So while I was sitting on my bed, struggling through my zillionth time re-casting on for the dream swatch head scarf, a lovely owl came tapping on my window!
What sis he have you may ask? Just the most amazing package that cheered me up and will continue to put a smile on my face for weeks to come!!
Picture time!!

Don't worry, I gave him some tasty cupcakes before sending him home!
The note that came with it

Everything laid out...

Silly me,I took a picture of the one package on the wrong side...this is what it said

This is gonna gets a lot of play time at the next Quidditch match! It's currently hanging in my dorm.

But what was in those wrapped packages?

Well...more pretty yarn! that's what! And the cutest sock pattern!(which I realize now is impossible to see in the picture)

And the other one? more wrapped gifts?!? And look at the cloth!

tapsetry needles, a measuring tape that looks like a sheep(CUTE!) jelly beans(LOVE!) and chocolate to combat boggarts!(EXTRA LOVE!)

One more pic accompanied by a happy dance? OKAY!

There's so much awesome, I had to lay it out on the floor and take a pic standing on my bed!

So in case you couldn't tell, CentyB is officially the coolest person at Hogwarts!

off to a "meh" start

So I cast on for the Dream Swatch earlier today and I remembered why I put this project on hold the first time I tried to make it...

"Row 6 (WS): *Slip 6 stitches with yarn in front
dropping all extra wraps, thus forming 6 long
stitches on the right-hand needle. Then, insert the
left-hand needle into the first 3 of these 6 stitches
and pass them over the second 3. Return all
stitches to the left-hand needle and purl the 6
stitches in the crossed order, the second 3 first,
and the original 3 next. Repeat from * on each
group of 6 stitches."

I've re-cast on several times(btw, I'm making it half as wide cause I have a small head) and each time I mess this part(the most important part) up. seems so simple, which is why I'm kinda frustrated that mine isn't coming out right. So if anyone can tell what I'm doing wrong,or knows another way to get the same results,please let me know.

Thursday, July 3, 2008


so the KAL is starting tomorrow and like the procrastipuff I am(I just made up a new word,procrastinating hufflepuff! yeah, that will never catch on) but I can't decide between not two but five yarns to choose from! What?How is that possible? Well, I really love the feel of bamboo yarn and kinda collect it without actually having anything to use it for so it just sits around in my stash being pretty and touchable. Though two of the yarns I think are cotton and something else blend...
I know, no labels? yeah, i kinda paw my yarn and the label gets in the way sometimes and I always forget to stick it in the yarn so I know what it is, but they're all light weight and bamboo, except the two on the left, those are cotton.

I was thinking yellow(Puff pride and all) but green is my favorite color(it's not as dark as the picture looks, though I have nothing to wear to match it when I finish it) the one on the far right is actually a lot more turioise than it looks and I don't really have much blue in my wardrobe but I really love how those feel(except maybe the one on the far's kinda an odd color with why's that there?)
I'm gonna narrow it down within the next few hours,I promise...

p.s.OMG! does anyone watch Doctor Who? Please say yes,I've been in freak out CAPS LOCK mode ever since, well yesterday,GAH! this show is why I missed the common room chat yesterday...okay, sorry, gotta choose a yarn!

Tuesday, July 1, 2008

Now to find where all the owls went to...

I haven't had much of a chance to post because I've been finishing up on my spoilee's package! yay!
Hopefully I can get to a post office within the next few days seeing as most of the owls here are off delivering other people's packages.

Now to focus on revisions...oh wait I forgot,I joined the Hufflepuff KAL
yet another reason to push those schoolbooks aside...

Hufflepuff House Quiz #5

This week's house quiz is in Transfiguration. Transfigure the following quote from Order of the Phoenix back into English and post it to your blog by noon (est) on Tuesday, July 1st.


'You know what?' Ron murmured, looking over at the bar with enthusiasm. 'We could order anything we liked in here. I bet that bloke would sell us anything, he wouldn't care. I've always wanted to try firewhisky -'

Oh Ron...this is why I love him...

excitement and a stuffy nose

So Hufflepuff won the second Quidditch match! Or did we? I hear there's talk of a second snitch it like when Cedric wanted to replay the match cause Harry passed out from the Dementors? It is a separate match?
Sorry, I'm really slow today cause i have a lot of swap stuff to finish and I woke up with a sore throat and a stuffed nose. Where did it come from? It's not like I go out a lot, or play in the rain, or kiss boys with head colds(or any for that matter).

And now I have to figure out some instructions for making a's for another swap I have no idea how I got added to, but I'm in it and my partner's a guy so I'm at a complete failure over what to get's one of those swaps where the only theme is books, and I have to get him "themed yarn" I'm worried my package for him will be too subjective to really understand the theme I'm going with...I chose "dream-world's since he likes Neil Gaiman, Mirror Mirror by Gregory Maguire and wants to read Alice in Wonderland. I got yarn that kinda reminds me of Mirror Mask, and found a sock pattern to go with the yarn called Magic Mirror socks, I made a vine bookmark, bought him Where's Neil Gaiman When You Need Him? CD and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and I wanted to make a journal with a quote from either A Midsummer Night's Dream(one of his favorites) or Sandman, but I've never attempted paper crafts.

But the good news is that my package for my spoilee for this swap is nearly done! I'm almost done with the bag, found a really awesome pattern and a few extra little things that I really hope she likes. Just waiting on the yarn to get here.

Maybe Madame Pomfrey has something I can take cause DayQuil is not working at all! I need to get better before Friday cause I'm planning a secret excursion off the castle grounds to see a former student and teacher perform at a library...

Tuesday, June 10, 2008

It's like Indiana Jones said....

really quick post here since I'm a little freaked and heard through the common room that a snake has been spotted. I don't wan tot seem squeamish but...I am!

And I don't know if this will be any help but back in the muggle world I once did a lot of research on lilies, mainly the mythical aspect and meaning of them and yada yada...
I did find out that snakes are actually "scared" of lilies, or at least in it's history snakes have been repelled and kept away by lilies planted in an area.

So my not so intelligent contribution to our little snake problem is to put lilies all over the common room in the hopes that it'll keep it away. Maybe we can make a spray or lotion with lily extract in it to spray near the doors as well.

I don't know, I hope something works!

Wednesday, June 4, 2008

I'm doing work! See?I'm being a good student!

The big assignment(sort of big) is a paper for Care of Magical Creatures..I say it's big cause I feel a bit silly for what I ended up writing. Coming from a muggle family, I've never really had an experience with magical creatures(or maybe I have and didn't realize what they were) Either way, other people have fun stories and,

There are a couple of creatures I want as a pet. Though I've had a soft spot for Tadfoals since I was young. Well, Taafoals are technically the young versions of the Hippocampus'. I did a lot of reading and imagining being someone else...usually settling on Greek mythology, the people and creatures that seemed to go hand in hand without any doubt that it was possible...maybe it was a precursor to where I am now. And the Hippocampus appeared in a lot of those stories. I think I'd like to have the best qualities of a horse and fish(mer-horse). And I'd like to have it as a Tadfoal so I could raise and bond with it. I might not be able to ride it around my neighborhood or at Howarts, but I'd make sure to travel to the wide open country so he can spread his wings, which will no doubt be enormous once he's fully grown. Though the downside would come once it grew up and felt cramped and needed to be with it's own kind. Or run off for adventures, which I wouldn't mind going with for that part. But raising a Hippocampus in the dorms and then in a Chicago apartment would raise a few eyebrows and I don't think domesticating this adventurous and wild animal would help anyone.

The other work we had to do? I was a bit overwhelmed...we had to start producing our own patronus...*overwhelmed!* but I've been practicing(usually late at night in the kind of hidden hall outside our common room cause I don't want anyone to see my constant messing up)
But after lots of practice and frustration, I finally produced one!

I hope I can impress Professor Lufkin now...

Tuesday, June 3, 2008

I get distracted very easily

Third post today...I know, I know, after this I'll focus on my crafts and schoolwork...

Got this from Perenelle Ballycastle journal

Here's the rules:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle.
3. Press play.
4. For every question, type the song that's playing.
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button.
6. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool.

My answers…and yes, I do have way too much wizard rock on my mp3…but eerily the answers make sense(and I didn’t cheat at all!)

Opening Credits: Expecto Patronum by The Remus Lupins
First Day At School: March of the Witch Hunters from Wicked Broadway Soundtrack
Falling In Love: The Rollercoaster Ride by Belle and Sebastian
Breaking Up: Divination by Gred and Forge
1st date: Halfblood Prince(No One Knows My Secret But You) by Split Seven Ways
Prom: Party Like Your Evil Remix by The Cruciatus Curse(original song by Draco and the Malfoys)
Life's OK: Is It Any Wonder? By Keane
Driving: Getting Better by The Beatles
Flashback: We Never Change by Coldplay
Getting Back Together: Golden Years by David Bowie
Wedding: By The Fire by The Remus Lupins
Final Battle: Haunted by Poe
Death Scene: Downloading Porn With Dave by The Moldy Peaches
Funeral Song: Seven Days by The Police
End Credits: Come Fly With Me by Frank Sinatra

This reminds me of a road trip game my friends made up where you ask a question out loud then either click random on your mp3 player or have someone else hold down the scan on the radio and the question asker says stop and whatever song plays is the answer to that question.

in which I knit and wait for mail

I'm starting this week on my package for Mogana Kneen! I have a list of things I need to buy/make. I might add some extra goodies...I love making things for people! And mailing stuff, I love getting mail too, especially packages. I'm waiting on quite a few packages from home and I hope my family figured out how to send the owl to me.

Schoolwork's been slow this week, which always means that next week I'll have loads to do.

OH! I'm finally starting a project for myself. My first sweater! It's so cute, well the button sweater!
It's gonna be a rose/coral pink and I might make the sleeves 3/4 length so I can wear it on semi-cool nights. I just hope it comes out nice enough that I can wear it...

It's raining out, which I kinda like, the trees are a pretty patty green next to the gray skies, I'm taking advantage and knitting by the window in the common room(I like our view from the first level, feels cozy)

In which I wear ties and dance all night

So it's been a week but I've finally come down from my over hyper excitement from spending a weekend in the woods listening to Potter music that I can actually talk about it without spazzing out and rambling and going off topic.
Though the recent Quidditch win has sent me into another hyper state and it's nearly impossible for me to stay focused on everything I need to get done.
GAH! Okay, I'll make a list...
I didn't mind the hills and woods as much as I thought I would when I first got there.

Performances by former students and teacher, Justin Finch-Fletchley, Moaning Myrtle, Ginny, Gred/Forge, Draco, Remus and a special appearance by The Whomping Willow? I didn't want to sleep the entire time in fear of missing something!

Hanging out with Gred/Forge(he sneaked me a butterbeer, don't tell Prof. Sprout or Fat Friar)

Though I'm a little embarrassed that I made a bit of a git of myself in front of Remus...sigh...never trust a drink given to you by Gred/Forge

Draco was nice enough to lend me his tie and make me an honorary Slytherin...for only an hour cause I missed my House tie...which somehow ended up on Jen who was a Gryffindor...everyone had every House had another House's tie, which I think the founders of Hogwarts would have loved!

I want to go back but I hear it might not be until my second year, which is fine, gives me time to...I don't know...get excited!

I did get sick afterwards, everyone there did, btu ti was worth it!

worse than finals

I'm still getting into the stride of being away and school work in general. Though it's funny that right now, long before all the final reviews, is harder than the actual finals themselves. I think cause during finals everyone's on the same page, and wants to just focus on what needs to be done, but now...well, I just want to hang out in the common room and wander the grounds and watch Quidditch tryouts and knit in my dorms with roommates.
Which means that I'm falling a little behind on my work.
But thanks to much more focused and organized puff's, we're doing pretty awesome with House I have House of Awesome stuck in my head. Hope I don't accidentally write the lyrics out on my DADA paper instead of the assignment.

Wednesday, May 14, 2008

quick quill on classes and teachers

I couldn't eat breakfast I was so nervous about classes! Well, that and I kinda slept in a little, up too late pre-practicing. I want to impress Professor Flitwick, I really want to do well in Charms.

My family would probably laugh at the sight of me in Potions...I'm trying to find a way to explain to them(muggles) that it's not like cooking(which I'm horrible at)

I liked Herbology more than I thought I would. Even thinking of getting something for my dorm, brighten the place up even more. Though I'll have to ask Prof. Sprout which one is easy to care for and won't scream or attack my bunk mates.

The new Professor Cornelius Lufkin makes me nervous....not in a scary way, but...well...he's so handsome! When I ran down to the Great Hall to catch the last of breakfast(thanks Eleanor for waking me up!) he shot me a look with those intense eyes and I almost fainted.

Sunday, May 11, 2008

Term started!

I have a partner! And though I have a while to get everything together and in order, I already have a list of things I want to do/make/send!

I don't think I'm gonna be able to concentrate in Potions today, I hope Professor wont catch me doodling sock pictures in my notebook.

It's really hard to find cute yellow t-shirts...not even plain ones I can paint on.

I just realized that this post is semi-useless...maybe it's Justin's new album that's making me wockey...wockey? Yeah, that's not a real word.

Thursday, May 8, 2008

Need to be well rested!

Term starts tomorrow! I'm nervous and excited and I don't think I'm going to get any sleep tonight waiting to finally start.

Saturday, May 3, 2008


I'm officially enrolled at Hogwarts! I was worried at first but then the Sorting Hat put me in Hufflepuff! Just fantastically perfect!
