Major Bummer!

Today I learned that the date November 21, 2008 will no longer hold special meaning for me.  No longer will I wait for this date to arrive.  I just can’t believe this is happening to me.  Don’t they know that I had already begun my preparations?  This just confirms that the execs at Warner Brothers care nothing about me, my feelings and my knitting queue!  Can you believe it?

Sorry, I was rambling, but I just read that the release of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince has been pushed backto JULY 17, 2009!  NOOOOOOOOOOOO!

They just can simply NOT do this.  Knitters will revolt.  Do you realize how many hats, scarves, sweaters and socks have been made in preparation for November 21, 2008?  Do they realize that I have been watching Harry Potter movies in Russian as practice for the big day (when I would likely be sitting in a theater in Azerbaijan, watching the movie in Russian, with Azeri subtitles).  DO THEY CARE?  Nope!  They didn’t even ask me.

Anyway, that’s the news.  Now I have to start planning a Potter themed wardrobe for July 17, 2009.  Hell, I don’t even know what country I’ll be living in then.  Maybe I will still be able to wear that scarf, and socks afterall! (Did I just type that outloud?….shit, I probably just jinxed myself!)

I Got Sucked In

I joined another group on Ravelry, this one for Harry Potter lovers in anticipation of the upcoming movie and hopefully to motivate me to actually knit something with all of this Harry Potter themed yarn that I have stashed. 

Instead of getting inspired to knit, I was sucked in to taking a quiz to find out who my “Potter husband” would be, and here are the surprising results.  Hmmm, he sounds a lot like Scott.  LOL.

Your result for The Harry Potter Husband Test

Mrs. James Potter

Your perfect HP man is James Potter.

Mrs. James Potter

Your guy was popular in school, but also kind of a jerk.  But that’s okay, because he grew up to be a pretty decent guy.  He knows how to have fun, but also how to be serious, and he’s a really good friend.  Sure, he’s the kind of guy that everyone says nice things about, but no one can be very specific about it, but that doesn’t matter.  We’re sure he really was a good bloke…at least to most people.

WOW!  I can’t believe it.  HSKS5 has room for more students.  If you knit and like to have a lot of fun, this is the place for you.  There aren’t too many spots left so head on over to the main site and see what you need to do to register.  You won’t want to miss one more minute of the fun!

My Long Lost Owl

My Potter Cover yarns are here.  For those of you who read my blog regularly I am a Harry Potter geek if you haven’t figured that out yet.  I love everything “Potter”.  So of course when I heard about these yarns hand dyed in the colors of the Potter Series book covers I had to have them!  I entered the club a little late so this shipment brought me up to date with the rest of the members.  This shipment contained (picture left to right, Sorcerer’s Stone, Chamber of Secrets, Prizoner of Azkaban (PoA) and Goblet of Fire.  Also included were four sock patterns with very cool names: Hedwig, the First Task, Heir of Slytherin and Sirius Black.  I was thrilled given my new found sock knitting fetish.  The yarns are fingering weight 75% superwash wool and 25% nylon with the exception of PoA which is 60% superwash wool, 30% bamboo and remainder nylon.  I think I am going to do the Sirius Black pattern first, as it uses the bamboo yarn and I’ve never knit with bamboo!  Thank you Carrie for putting together such an awesome club!
