Holy bowtruckles, guys! I saw Deathly Hallows Part One last night, at the 12:05am show. I'm still reeling. It reminded me of what an intense journey we've all been on since the first book came out -- and how the next stage of the journey is drawing to a close.
I loved reading all of your stories about your knitting disasters! Not that I loved knowing that they happened, but it makes me really happy that no one took the disasters as a reflection of themselves or their knitting talent. We may mess up, but we keep trying. That's definitely in the spirit of Harry Potter and his friends.
This week's winner's story is one that I've definitely experienced:
450 yards of fingering weight yarn, in a tangle? I would rather have spattergroit/the death flu again than face something like that! Congratulations, CommaSplice! Not only are you braver than I, you've won this week's prize! Please message me on Ravelry with your address so I can mail out your row counter!
Next week is the last giveaway for this term, if you can believe it! Since it is the last one, it's going to be a little special -- a sock or mitten kit (winner's choice) in their House colors! If you want to be entered, please leave me a comment here, telling me your first Harry Potter memory -- whether it's about the books, the movies, whatever you like!
I hope all your projects are going well -- we're almost there!
Love and scales,
