Owl Alert!

 A few minutes ago the doorbell rang. Upon answering it I discovered a very confused looking muggle postal worker. She inquired as to why a package had the word “Owl” written on it as I signed for the box.

And what was in the box? Well my very own Ravenclaw House socks of course, knitted by Chris (aka Susan Bones) of WoolybunsWithout enchanted needles! Also inside were very lovely handmade stitch markers, a pair of Inox circular needles a copy of “The Magic Loop” book, a beautiful snowy owl and a rather large bar of dark chocolate to ward off night time dementor attacks!  The lovely socks are the Horcrux Pattern and they fit like a dream! I may never take them off again.

THANK YOU CHRIS! (please excuse the bad picture of the socks being worn.  The strange angle makes them look look really short and wide… wait a minute, maybe that’s just what I look like!)

Oh and this morning  I  read about another great contest for you knitters out there.  Head on over to http://www.shellykang.com/2007/07/contest.html to enter. 

And don’t forget you also have until midnight on Wednesday to enter the one here as well.  And in case I failed to mention it, the prize here is for a skein of Socks That Rock!  And a  prize for those of you who don’t knit… isn’t it time you learned?  I’ll try to think of something. 

P.S. that unidentified cat on KitKatKnit’s site is really annoying me.  Somebody please come up with an answer soon.

How time flies! You don’t look a day over 25! Just like me! What a great collection of sock stuff and owl! Emma and I have been listening to book 1 on disk (just ’cause), and I’ll be receiving my book by owl (an Amazon Owl) on Saturday. Can’t wait!! I wonder how heavy the mail truck will be with all the copies? I went to figure out the cat painting, went through hundreds of artworks online, and I gave up. I dunno. Love ya! KO

    Happy 40th bday HP…and thank you BP for the reminder!!!

  11. Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Heide…………happy birthday to you. (imagine singing, please). BP reminded me, too, and thanks, but I already screwed up and sent a card too early. Do not ever share a surprise secret with me….I screw them up.

  12. Happy Birthday! I asked my art history professor friend what was that cat and she didn’t know! Said she’d’ve known the dog in the Renoir, but the cat must be some obscure 20th century piece, based on its eyes (??)! Nice pkg!

  14. Happy, happy birthday, dear Heide! All the very best to you – may all your dreams and wishes come true in this new year of yours!
    And woah, this goodie package sure arrived just in time – lovely stuff in it, and those socks are so gorgeous! Enjoy everything!
