Have you seen....

I have been working on my kit planning for my pal! Mostly in the brainstorming stage right now.... I am about 35% done with the bag. Looking for liner fabric, sock yarn in Hufflepuff colors and stitch markers... I have a couple trinkets but still on the search!

Okay and I also just realized people are leaving me comments! (I missed Monday's feast because of it!) I did not have it set to email me when comments are left! URGH!! But it is fixed!

But have you seen? These!!

Looking for yarn

My homework has been mounting.... I have been working on my bag. I am in search of just the right sock yarn! And stitch markers.... But where.... Any suggestions would be great!

I have slowly gotten to my Potions work! I just love the mixing and measuring! I tried to whip up a little remedy for my sickness over the weekend! Just ended up making me sleep all morning! I was late for Potions! Urgh!! Do love the History classes though and Muggles Studies!

Be careful!

Poor Cassandra Grubbly-Plank She was the victim of a prank! By a sneaky seventh year!!
Headmistress is not pleased! We have a new head girl in Gryffindor! Cassandra Puddlemere... She is very nice!! Roar! Roar! Gryffindor!!!

I have been attending my Enchanted Kit Planning class! We are learning about how to swap on a budget.... You can find lovely little extras to throw in here and there every week!

Mom and Dad sent an Owl with a wonderful letter about home... I was thankful I have not gotten a Howler.... Also I received a great care package!

Some new yarn (Mom want me to knit her slippers... of course she did not ask but I knew why the yarn was there)....

Also, these:

I think I ate a Booger flavored one.... URGH!

I have also decided to read again... The Goblet of Fire...
Interesting fact in our Muggles Studies... This is part of our textbook

We have to write an essay on "Why Muggles need Electricity?".... Hmmmmm

I can barely sleep!

I just cannot sleep! Classes start today! I am both excited and nervous! I read some of the first chapters in my book... just in case! And I saw some of the planning for the Enchanted Kit Planning course! I cannot wait! (and I got ahead of myself buying the yarn and casting on for the bag!) Well, off to get a little more sleep!
I caught a glimpse of the new Potions Professor! He was out under the tree sleeping or catching some sun! Boy! I cannot wait! I do hope he is nice and not too much homework!

Homework and House Points!

I have finished part of my homework for Enchanted Kit Planning! I purchased some yarn yesterday for my swap persons bag... She is a Hufflepuff. I was a little worried about finding just the right shade of yellow! But I was out and found Caron's Simply Soft in Lemonade and Black! Perfect! I casted on! (I know I am ahead of the game classes start tomorrow! But, I just could not help myself! )

As for House Points we are in third place!! I hear there may be a quiz later this week!

Saturday, January 12, 2008


Thank goodness I was not the only one that heard this in the night.... I did not say much until now... I just was visiting with Lily and she heard it too....

I heard a rumor some Gryffindors may try to sneak to the Forbidden Forest.... How spooky and exciting!

Our common room has been quite fragrant! Ever since the impromptu Orchideous lesson... flowers have been appearing everywhere! IF only I could find a conjuring spell that would produce my knitting for Enchanted Kit Planning!

I need to go broom shopping.... Also, work on the Enchanted Kit Planning homework.... I have discovered which bag to knit but now need to find the right yarn and colors!

I hear there may be a Yule Ball this year.....

Also I found a great site to help study my Potions, spells and life at Hogwart's! You can find it here

Friday, January 11, 2008

It arrived!

I received my owl today! I have my secret pal! I am soooo excited to spoil her! She is a Hufflepuff! I cannot wait to study for
Enchanted Kit Planning

My Wand! and some history....

Headmistress walked the grounds today asking us all how we were settling in.... I also saw quite a display of the Orchideous lesson going on... It is when you can make flowers appear out of your wand... Mr. Olivander tested my wand that I bought the same way!!

Wood type: oak
Length: 11½ inches
Core: Kelpie Hair

get your own wand!

I did find that there is a Werewolf Early Warning from the Daily Prophet

So, I am settling in all things considered.... My last name is Dumbledore... however the relation is extremely distant! But it does not stop some of the Syltherin from picking on me...
You see my Mum is Perpetua (Phoenixfire) and my Dad is Rodolphus Dumbledore far far distant relation to Percival Dumbledore.

I have a brother Havelock and his wife Electra The Enchanted... a cute niece Winifred...
My sister is Bella Le Blizzard and her husband Bertrum Le BLizzard....

We are a wizard family although there were rumors Winifred might have some distant Muggle relation through her Mum....

I am waiting for my secret pal here at Hogwarts and to begin the term!! I tried and tried to conjure up a quick spell to progress my knitting but none have worked....

Oohh I also caught sight of Harry Potter! Boy is he cute... Although Ron Weasley is quite adorable...

Wednesday, January 9, 2008

I hear that there was a problem over in the Ravenclaw Common Room! A First year and water.... I hope the knitting dries out soon! I am happy to have arrived safe at Hogwarts and Gryffindor Common Room! Hope to get some pleasure knitting done before the term begins!!

I just was reading the Daily Prophet from yesterday! And they have listed courses to be coming soon
Hogwarts Happenings

Course Listing
