That Bloody Quiz!

I officially give up! I've tried, I even know the answer to it, but I don't see how you get it. My brain is completely unable to wrap itself around this concept. I don't see how, from what we've been given, anyone has come up with that answer.

Urgh! I'm going to go knit something so I feel better!

Time Flies

I'm so glad that our student journal's aren't being graded as I would certainly be in danger of receiving a failing It seems like just a day or two ago that I posted an update, but it's really been a week and a half! Just so much to do I guess.

Last weekend was our first trip to Hogsmeade. It was great fun. A group of us went there together and just sort of hung out all day, which was nice. We must have went into every shop there is in the village. Although I have to say Honeydukes was definitely my favorite. There was every type of sweet you could imagine! Dad always said that Honeydukes was the very best sweet shop, and he was right. I bought a few extra sweets that I knew were his favorites and owled a package to him.

Magical Fiber Transformation is still my very favorite of classes. Since so much of the work is done individually, we get to move at our own pace. There are 3 or 4 in the class that professor is allowing to try more advanced lessons. It is great fun and I am loving it.

I finished the baby sweater for my cousin and have sent that off. We've heard she is due any day now, so the timing is perfect. I've just finished a baby blankie as one of my advanced projects. Dad has a co-worker who is expecting, so we are going to give it to her. I like knowing that the baby item I make will go to good homes and be used.

Now that I have this done I need to concentrate on our home work assignment. It's really challenging and I may need to seek out some help on this one. Our first 2 assignments were much easier, but I guess this is how we learn. Well enough ramble, time to head to the library and tackle that assignment.

Weekly Update

Have I mentioned that I am terrible when it comes to journaling? Well it's true, I am the worst. But it's part of what make me who I am I guess, or at least that is the story I'm going to go with.

I'm having a super time here at Hogwarts. I do have to say that many of the girls in my class are just completely boy-crazy... which explains why we get on so well.

Magical Fibers is my most favorite of classes. I really do love doing it and have several projects in the works for class. I've been dubbed the "multi-tasker" of this year's class because I have so many things going on at the same time.

I received an owl from Nonni last week and the wrist warmers I sent for Poppa were a big hit. He is wearing them whenever he uses his computer.

I've begun work on the bag for my swap partner, it is coming along quite nicely and I think she will really enjoy it. I would like to find something unusual to give her for stitch markers. When we go to Hogmeade this weekend I'm planning to look for something I can use.

Well, I have some homework to finish and I have to start a baby sweater for one of my cousins who will be having a baby. Yes, another knitting project to work on, guess I do deserve that title of multi-tasker!
