Sorting things out

a Gryffindor!

We’ve been sorting ourselves out over at reverendmother‘s, where the Comments work, unlike here. At first I thought no one loved me anymore except Mindy, but then I realized the fault was all Haloscan’s.

I am knitting a Gryffindor scarf (from the first movie) for The Princess, who is planning to be Hermione for Halloween. So far I have cast on, knitted one stripe, decided it was too wide, unravelled the whole thing, cast on again and knitted two-and-a-half stripes. There are nineteen, so I have a ways to go. And then there’s fringe, but we won’t speak of it just now.

All five members of our family are looking forward to reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. We didn’t pre-order it; I’m hoping to stay up late and buy it just after midnight. There is some discussion about buying two copies. I think the fastest readers should get first crack at it, don’t you?
