I am A Ravenclaw!

Your Score: RAVENCLAW!

You scored 32% Slytherin, 52% Ravenclaw, 24% Gryffindor, and 32% Hufflepuff!

Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,

If you've a ready mind,

Where those of wit and learning,

Will always find their kind.

Ravenclaws are known for their intelligence, ingenuity, and lifelong thirst for knowledge.

In knitting news, I finished the Horcrux socks and Uncle Patrick's bookmarks. I bought a new knitting bag at Michaels and I love it. I started a pair of sideways mittens with the pattern that I found on Knitting Nonni. The link is on the sidebar. I am using Red HEart Super Saver to use it up. I am almost finished with the second mitten. The color is Claret. I made a Pygmy Puff with Patons Twister in purple. I named him Harold the Purple Pygmy Puff. Like Harold and the Purple Crayon. lol. At Michaels yesterday I bought a needle gauge and found out the sizes of all of the double pointed needles that I bought at the church yard sale. Yea! TTYL

101 Things and Counting!

So far this year I have knit 101 things and counting. I finished my Horcrux Socks and they are so comfortable. I ended up just knitting them the same. I love them! I don't have a picture yet but I plan on it! I knitted up a Tea Cozy Crown hat yesterday in blue and gray for a two and a half year old's Big Brother Present. It ended up so cute! I was very proud of it. I am also knitting a wand. Yes, that's right, a wand! I am using some dark brown Wool Ease and size 3 dpn. II think it will turn out pretty cute!

I am knitting a prayer shawl to add to my great grandmother's Christmas present. I plan on knitting on for both my aunts and my grandmother to add to their Christmas presents. I will knit one for my mom too, if she wants one. If she doesn't I will figure something else out.

I need to go and work on my Gram's shawl and hopefully get it done soon. I am baby-sitting at least four days this week, so this shawl will probably use it as a baby-sitting project. I am going to use my baby-sitting money to buy the six skeins of Microspun that I am going to need for my Summertime Tunic. I joined the knitalong, and I am ordering my needles off of Knit Picks soon. I am also buying the set of KIPer bags. The set of bags is only fifty but separately they are eight a piece. I can't wait to knit up my tunic!!!!

Post With Pix Later...

I promise! I will have beach pics and knitting pics. I have been knitting a ton, as you can see on my progress bars. I finished the Fancy Fur scarf and the Feather and Fan scarf. I am going to try and finish the prayer shawl today while watching movies. I am going to Wal-Mart today to buy the last color I need for Uncle Patrick's House
Bookmarks. I have finished Gryffindor, Slytherin,and Ravenclaw. I just need to knit Huffepuff. I have the plum color that I need, I just don't have to yellow. I can knit that tonight, or finish it tomorrow while I baby-sit the twins. When they ride in the Bye-Bye Buggy, I can put my yarn in the hole and knit while I push the buggy. It is a very nice arrangement. I am going to try to finish my Horcrux socks before Wednesday night. I am going up to the lake with my family and a family from my church who have a house up there. I can wear my Horcrux socks as slippers because they are much to thick to wear as socks. I plan on knitting one with a burgundy leg and foot, with a gold heel and toe, and then do the opposite on the other. I am knitting them in Red Heart. It isn't the best yarn but it works for bookmarks and slippers!
