It has been a very long week already. And it's only "hump day"....

I'll post more later. I'm off to school then to work then to homework....

The only knitting I've done these last few days is a couple of bars on my brothers slytherin scarf. A family of three, and we're all in seperate houses. It's a little crazy.

I managed to finish a scarf this weekend while watching American Muggle Football. (WOW that's a lot of adjectives for one sport!) I must admit I'm a fan despite all the sillyness involved in the sport. However, my favorite team didn't win, and will not be going to the superbowl. I am very sad about this, but I am happy to have completed my scarf. It is rather lovely. It took me about 2 weeks to finish. Now I need to start my next project. I'm debating between a a lace-ish scarf (which would be a first for me, I want to do this pattern. The pictures on Ravelry sold it for me.) or a pair of socks knitted with 2 circulars (another first for me.) I made a poll to help decide this matter. PLEASE VOTE IN THE SIDEBAR, If you choose other, please comment with your idea.

I also did a bit of shopping this weekend for my swap. I've decided on the sock yarn, I've got the pattern picked out, and I've already made stitch markers. I've also planned some extras already. UnfortunatlyI'm still a little undecided on the bag. I know that I want to knit it, mainly because my sewing is awful, and I don't really want to have to depend on my cousin or my mother to help me. I'm going back and forth between felting or not, lining the bag or not, using 2 colors or one. I have too many ideas, and I need fewer.

I have finally broken down and started wearing my school uniform. Apparently school is not the place for ripped jeans, and rocking out on the bass. Well, I'm still wearing my ripped jeans. I think they're too comfortable to give up. And I managed to use a charm to change my bass to be blue so now it's house pride colors! I've also given up playing indoors, I'd hate to disrupt any studying or class time.

I'm getting the hang of using magic more and more. I transfigured poor Rocky into a cat the other night while I was practicing. He wasn't too happy about it and neither were several of my roommates who are allergic to cats. I turned him back into a pug, and he seems happier now.

Unfortunatley I will be unable to make either of the weekly ravenclaw knitting meetings. I have too many classes. (Out of Character note: That is a serious fact, I'm in class for the Tuesday afternoon meetings and at work for the Wednesday night meetings. Time zone changes are a pain.) I'm sad to miss them, but I have noticed that several of my classmates have been taking notes during them and updating. I'll be reading their blogs to find out what happens.

1st week of term

It's the first week of term and I must say I like Herbology about as much as I like steamed carrots. And I hate carrots. I never found plants interesting before, and I certainly don't like them now. Especially since they now have the ability to shoot puss at me and scream at me. Normal plants and magical plants are best left to their own devices outside and away from me. My black thoumb will most likely kill anything it touches anyway. I suppose they serve they're purposes in potions and such, but I'd rather it came to me in a jar or bottle ready to go into the cauldron.

I must say I love transfiguration and charms. Actually I like pretty much everything, but herbology. I think transfiguration is my favorite class though. I think it will probably be one of the hardest, but it definately has my 100% interest.

I'm rather tired now, so I think I may just head to bed early, and start fresh tomorrow.

1st post

This is my first post, and my first time ever doing a secret swap AND the first time blogging "in character." I'll have to see how that goes.

I'm doing HSKS4... I have a gryffindor for a partner. It seems I always get gryffindor partners. I have some great ideas for yarn and bags and bag patterns though. I'll start shopping this week when after I get paid.

I'm excited for this swap!
