The JK Rowling Open Book Tour Sweepstakes

Anyone still out there knitting, reading, and continuing to enjoy all things Harry Potter?

I've mentioned my HP crazed sister in past posts. I've knitted her several hats, scarves and little HP related stuffed animals.

Well she won one of the 1,000 tickets to go see JK Rowling speak at Carnegie Hall in NYC on October 19th at 7PM. Click on the Click Here in the box to the right of the box with the picture of Jo to see the list of confirmed names. She is listed under OH, Allison, Age 27.

To say that Allison is over the moon with excitement is an understatement. You can read more about it, including who she is taking with her on this adventure sadly it's not me, over at my knitting blog In Knitting News. Please stop by and congratulate her in the comments!

Here is a recent picture of her beloved Harry Potter bookshelf often referred to as 'The Shrine.' It's filled with all sorts of fun books, toys, book boxes, pictures, a film reel of HP4, a set of the British stamps, calendars, and multiple handmade HP items, even a pillow made from a party napkin by a friend.

I'm so very happy for my sister.

Happy knitting everyone.

Yes Allison and Nicholas were there and they had a fabulous time. Allison is currently compiling what she has dubbed the MANIFESTO a scrapbook of sorts detailing her experience. I will be posting her write up on my blog when it is ready.
