Loony about my kit!

Yesterday's, Athena the Owl brought a fascinating box:

Do you think there's anything for dogs inside?

Could there be something for me? It's my package from Perenelle!

She based my package on Luna Lovegood, so she sent this beautiful Ravenclaw bag. I often think I'm more Ravenclaw than Hufflepuff, and I'm a little surprised the Sorting Hat has never moved me. So now I can acknowledge my Ravenclaw side, and maybe using this bag will make me smarter.

The rest of the package was great - I'm sure Luna would love it, and the VeryBadDogs loved part of it. she sent a teleidoscope, to help see the world through Luna's eyes. There's a pattern for Luna socks, some Sunshine yarn (infested with Nargles, I fear, but still lovely), and some short needles, which I'm eager to try. She sent two other bags - a strawberry shaped one for collecting gurdyroots, and a cute yellow one to go with Luna's dress robes. She also sent a dishtowel from her Muggle home, and some treats for my Fantastic Beasts. There's tea, and a pretty tin, and a special issue of the Quibbler - such a great package!

Thank you, Perenelle! And the dogs say thank you, too!

Almost Over

Wow, it's hard to believe the term is almost over.

It's been a crazy couple of weeks, so I haven't had much time to get things done. But Tuesday was my birthday, and that was great! We had cake at my knitting night, and my husband got me a fabulous present - a Spinning Wheel! It needs a little help to get it up and running, but pretty soon I'll be spinning like magic.

Tempus Fugit

It's not a spell, just a statement. This term seems to have flown by!

I seem to be way behind in my work, but I'm sure I'll catch up. This week I taught several friends to knit, so now I have some encouragement.

The good part is that it looks like summer is finally here - lots of time to sit outside and knit. Lots of distractions, too - I have rhubarb-apple crumble in the oven right now. Summer is a tasty season!
