Hey guys! First of all, everyone stop what you're doing and wish Angie a Happy Birthday!! She's 23 today. Yay!!! *singing "Happy Birthday to you, you live in a zoo..."* Ahem.
Next, I can't believe I almost forgot to mention this. I got my package from my Gryffindor swap last week! She was soooo much more creative than I was. First, on the outside of the package, the return address said "Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry" which was just really cool. Then inside the package was this.
That is "Charmed Knits" which I'm very excited about, since I didn't have it before; the yarn to make "Hermione's cable and bobble hat" which is in that book; Stitch markers that look like little wands made out of gryffindor colors, which came in a little "vial" labeled "Polyjuice Potion"; and a couple recipes (for Pumpkin Pasties and Shepard's pie) on what looks like the parchment they use in "Harry Potter" to do their homework and stuff. I am so very happy with my package, and need to send out a big big thanks to Selah for it! Thank you!!!
I also got a little bit done today (not much... my hand was seriously killing me yesterday after all the knitting so I had to stop...) on the Pastel Pinwheel baby blanket. I thought I'd show you guys how it works. So far, anyway. It looks a little weird where you pick up your wraps but that's ok. I think it kinda looks cool.
The yellow will go above the big purple section. I think those colors look nice together. What do you think?
And, for your added enjoyment... *drumroll*
