Cookie A's Mona pattern. in my opinion you cant go wrong with a Cookie A

Not one but to different Colorways of her Tempted Yarn
the top one is Puff and you cant see it but there is little sliver specs in it.
the bottom one is Helga. I think they will grow up togather to be a shawl or wrap

Knit Pic 40' inch circle which is great because I want to try magic loop but hadnt gotten needles for it yet just the book. and a sock blocker keychain

Bee Lotion for dry skin... smells great.

An Awesome lucy bag. You can see in the picture is there is novelty yarn in with the blue so there is a little flash in it. And I know this isnt a good Head Girl thing to say but thank gawd its not 'Puff colors.

Lavender made this kit for me and you can see she did her research. Can you tell what those are? They are little hockey skates with crossed sticks and a puck. If confused go back to early posts or check out my muggle blog.

The entire kit and Caboodle. I didnt get pics of the journal or the two magnetic note pads she sent me but this kit roooooccccckkkksssss my world.


Thanks Lav.

Snake-A-Way is the worlds only EPA approved, university tested, patented snake repellent. It has been proven effective against both poisonous and non-poisonous snakes. When used and applied as directed it is safe to humans, animals and plant life. It has been universally approved and endorsed by naturalists, conservationists and ecologists.
Does Snake-A-Way Really work? You can be confident with the use of Snake-A-Way. It's efficacy reached over 83% in laboratory testing and is at almost 100% with field studies that all 4 branches of the military ran during the gulf war.
Dr. T's utilizes the knowledge about the snakes Jacobson organ and interference with the snakes sensory reception ability. In simple terms the snakes nervous system is temporarily shut down.
Naphthalene, a volatile product, and Snake-A-Way's active ingredient vaporizes, it is brought into the sensory receptor (Jacobsons organ) and creates an immediate interference that is repressive enough to close down the sensory system and scare the snake into a hasty retreat. It was found to be so effective that it protected our military during the gulf war from sand vipers and cobras. You can be confident in it's ability to do the job.
Snake-A-Way like many other established American products such as Listerine, Bayer Aspirin, and Coca-Cola were developed by a registered Pharmacist. Pharmacist-inventor James B Tennyson, spent more than 15 years researching, testing, and developing this unique American product.
Extensive university level testing was conducted by Dr. Harvey Lillywhite, an international recognized Zoologist at the University of Florida. We expect that there will never be another repellent developed by ourselves or any other company that will be as effective as Snake-A-Way. The reason is simple Snake-A-Way is not obnoxious, irritating nor a bitter substance that may be overcome, we cut their light off!
We sell Snake-A-Way in two sizes: 1.75 lb. and 4 lb.

Do you know who this is.........

So I have been alone the last couple of days at school and I must admit i was sneaking around just a little. Now before you get made I know that is not a very 'puff thing to do... but I was sent here not sorted here so I shrugged it off. I did happened to notice this bast week that one Wisteria Luvegood ( I am trying to protect her identity but I had to tell someone)has been MIA along with Prof Lufkin. Now I know we where all asked to help get him accustomed to the school but they seem to be spending a lot of time off campus. I actually followed them the other day and I do believe there might be some hanky panky going on there.
Then I find out that Wisteria has to leave campus for a week....... well were is prof Lufkin I haven't seen him have you. Last I saw of them they were walking in Diagon Alley hand and hand and that trollop we just giggling away, do you think she really likes him or is it all for a grade. Granted she is not a first year but kissing a teacher well I never.....

If you know something pass the story along

To Duel or not to duel

So I am so torn on if I should do the dueling club I really really want to but I scared. I have to work a lot to keep up appearances and I am not sure if i will be able to knit when the pattern drops. I am so sympathetic of the Weasleys they must of had such a hard time making at Hogwarts. True they were pure bloods but they did struggle much like those yucky muggles. Today while I was at work I did get to see the Muggle Basketball game the Celtics won. They are the only team to like as they are much more magical then those other team...yes I know about the Wizards but they used to be the bullets so I don't give them much credit.

Wow i am an easily sidetrack witch arent I. So after much thought I decided to sign up for the dueling club will you be there with me.

So its Monday and Classes are about to start how great is that. I am so happy. I had a great weekend with my husband he even went to the NH Sheep and Wool festival with me on his own. My little wizards picture was in the Methuen Life paper for the championship hockey season they had.

Somthing magical happened

I received an owl the other day telling me there had been a terrible mix up at the start of my first term at Hogwarts. Now I really do not understand how this can be it is so evident that I am a true Gryff. But no this messaged screamed it is not meant to be, you are now a member of Hufflepuff. I was shock and awed much like that idiot GWB intended to do in Iraq to find out that I had indeed been tossed out of Gryff tower right on my witch but. At first I was worried I was being kicked out of school all togather. I didnt even finish the letter but paniced and cried.

Almost directly behind the headmistress owl was one from Lavender Ackerly whom I dont remember from last term as she was in Ravenclaw and she too had been kicked out of her house but she was calm and read the entire message. We were being moved to Hufflepuff Huzzah Huzzah.

We are paired up as Prefect and Head Girl and will rule the school for sure.

For now however I need to redecorate this muggle blog filled with vile Gryffendor pics and make sure i show my Huzzah Hufflepuff pride.
