Just wanted to let everyone know I'm still around. We had a really bad April around my house. Things are slowly getting back to normal, but with that said, I just finished rereading book 2 and started book 3 this morning. I think part of my problem was that book 1 was so like the movie that it was boring (since I could just watch the movie), but I hated not to read it. I think book 2 was the same, but not to the same level.
I've been spending my time finishing up some projects and not really starting anything new. I did try to cast on the Horcrux socks three separate times and could not get the gauge small enough to fit me instead of my husband (and truth be told, they were too big for him). I have every intention to retry that again today. I'm planning to make the ribbing at the top and the foot in blue and the lightning bolts (and maybe the heel and toe in gray). Ravenclaw colors, of course.
Just wanted to give y'all an update. Happy Knitting!
