Hi, 2nd Karen to join so I guess I will be Karen A. I was sorted into the Hufflepuff house which is cool and righteous since I have grown herbs, and vegetables for many years. I don't now as I live in Arizona in the desert in the middle of nowhere can we say drought? can we say mice? rabbits? deer? coyotes? snakes? So, no garden.

I have been reading Harry Potter a long time before my 28 year old daughter left home from college. We still share our views of the stories. I buy 3 copies of the books when they come out (pre-order) 1 for me, 1 for DH, and 1 for grandchildren.

My favorite book is all of them. Although, I felt Harry was really angry in OotP
but, my dd said she felt it was only right he was that angry.

I was shocked when Snape was the "bad" guy in the last book. I don't think an unforgivable curse would enable Professor to be in the pictures and all the playing cards. He now can see around the world.

I love to knit socks. I would hope so as I actually knitted 35 pairs last year on consignment. Started this year out slow with socks only made 4 pairs so far but, 4 sweaters, 1 afghan, and 2 tank tops. All knitted.

I am looking forward to the KAL and making new friends with same interests.

Whoo Karen! You are one prolific knitter. Wow.
It sure doesn't sound like the most ideal plot for a garden!

The only thing I have to say about Snape as a 'bad' guy is: In OtP we learned he was an expert Legilimens- I think he knew what Dumbledore wanted him to do --and he was already dying-- Snape had sworn an unbreakable oath to finish the job if Draco couldn't - if DD lived Draco would not which meant what for Snape? he would die? I don't actually recall the terms of the oath to that extent.

But then again - I am a Snape fan. I was a Snape fan before Alan Rickman but much, much more so afterwards! So I may be looking for signs and making info fit my bias - but isn't it a sound argument?

I have to say Snape's character is interesting and I am a fan of his also. I like Remus Lupin and Snape the best. karen a

Hi Karen! I can be Karen M if that helps. You can't have too many Karens. :-) Happy Knitting.
