Hi, everyone! I'm Laura, and I'm really excited to be joining this KAL. I own a yarn store in Minnesota called 3 Kittens Needle Arts. Tiffany (Gryffindor prefect) is one of our employees. I was lucky enough to see her Molly Weasley sleeves today at the store - they're stunning!
I started reading the 1st Harry Potter book to my son back before the books started gaining popularity here in the U.S., and I have been hooked ever since. I've read the 1st book 3 or 4 times and most of the other ones at least twice. I want to re-read the whole series before the next book comes out, but I'm not sure I have time. So I thought I'd listen to them on my iPod while I'm driving. I've listened to all of them off of CDs that I've borrowed from the library, but I thought since I have my iPod, I'd just download them onto there and listen that way. Unfortunately, the audio book service I use, Audible, doesn't have the books! WHY?? So now I'm going to have to figure out something else.
I'm not sure what I'm going to knit (or crochet) yet, although I'm leaning toward Hermione's cabled hat or the Weasley Cell Cozy. I also like the idea of a sorting hat. We'll see...
Thanks for letting me join. Check out my blog at www.k5tog.blogspot.com.
