For my spoilee

I'm very very excited about my kit. So far I have tons done, but I haven't really spent any money. I've made stitch markers and a little extra for my partner. I had all the supplies to make some really cute stitch markers at home. I used to do tons of beading a long time ago so I've got beads and beading supplies bursting from the walls. Here's a semi-blurred teaser picture for Rowena Bladvak and anyone else who is interested.

I've also picked a pattern for the bag; well actually I couldn't pick one so I picked all of my favorites and sort of combined them all 
into something that I really liked and that worked the best with my knitting style and hopefully in the end it'll turn out alright. I have a back up plan just
 in case.

In other news, semi related to kits AND beading. I tried my hand at making a couple of row counter bracelets. I have on slytherin colored one, which I believe is rather large and a ravenclaw one 
that I did, but put one too many "1" beads. I'll probably do something to fix the two of them, but I am rather impressed with the results. I think that I'll be trying to make some more too. 
Although I need more elastic for the little beaded rings, I'm out of the tinier clear kind and the white that I have is just too bulky. I had to use it for the slytherin bracelet and I can't say that I liked it. It works and it's functional, but not nearly as pretty as I would like.

Dueling Club

I've signed up for the dueling club, in the hat bracket. I hope that I do rather well. I think that hats are probably my best projects, and the ones that I can knit the quickest, but I don't want to get too confident. The first project has cables (my absolute favorite!). 

Wish me luck. I have all of my supplies and the pattern comes out next week.

I am a little worried though because we were all supposed to get emails with the email addresses and the brackets, but I never got mine. I'm sure it will come.

I know some people will think I'm crazy, and I probably am, but last weekend it was 107 degrees outside, this weekend it's rainy and 67 degrees outside, and I miss the 107. That is the craziest thing about weather here that people really don't understand in 3 days it goes from dry hot and sunny to cold damp and rainy.... Madness. I honestly prefer the heat, which is some madness on my end. hahaha.

I'm still alive...

And I'm a college graduate! (I feel a little bit like that might be bragging, but I'm so excited that I just want to yell it out a few more times before I'm over it.)


I also must add that last week was probably one of the craziest most stressful weeks of my life. Finals that killed me, then party planning, a concert, party setup, a birthday party, working.... I do have some party pictures that I want to post because we transformed our no landscaped courtyard into a whole different place. It looked so pretty. I'm really lucky to have my parents.

I'm really sorry that I have not been more active in everything going on, but I'm back now full throttle... I'm a little confused with some of what has been going on like DA points and emailing and which dorm I'm in and everything... So I'l be trying to catch up on that... If someone would like to give me a "cliff notes" version, I'd appreciate that too... ;)

I've started on some of the "extras" for my partners kit... I'm really excited about the whole thing.

I've signed up to swap again, I previously had some debates about whether or not to sign up for a third time. Then I really wanted to go another round, and I am super happy that I managed to get in in time.

Since the swap has kicked off I wanted to post and let everyone know that I am still alive and do plan on being very active, but probably not until after next week. I have finals and I am graduating so currently I have very little free time.

I'm writing a semi-intro for my fellow slytherins. Previously I was in the ravenclaw house, I've changed houses and character names now (but not my real name, haha)... When I get more time I'll re-do my blog to show my slytherin pride. This is a "character" blog. I like to keep my posting for the swap seperate from my blog but I don't get too into character. I'm looking forward to the new term.
