Wow, it's gonna be a great Summer!

Well we finally did it. We finally bought an RV. If you go to my favorite links and click on our camping blog you can see pictures. It has a great chair that I will be doing all my knitting in. We can't pick it up until Friday, but it's going to be way fun this summer.

Hogwarts campers please use link

Okay, so I am finally figuring out the Blogging world and I have set up a separate blog for my Hogwarts crew. Please use link for my alter-ego for all Harry Potter related blogs.

Thanks and see you all around the campfire, bring lots of chocolate.


So after much soul searching, I have decided that my Patronus is an otter, since the sea otter is my all-time favorite animal. They are such a playful and happy animal and like me, they love shrimp.

It hasn't been official, because summer camp is different from the school year, but I am going to assume that the sorting hat put me in Gryffindor, since that was my only choice.  I am a purist and can't imagine being anywhere else but with Harry, Hermione, Ron and Ginny.  And Gryffindor colors are my favorite.  Well I also like purples, but Red is my signature color.  I am a cool winter after all.

My spoiler is Thistle Lovegood and she loves anything with mint and pretty glass jars. She doesn't have any projects posted so I can't make any comments at this time (I think her computer recently crashed)

Rah Rah Ravelry

Well in addition to my Facebook addiction, I am also addicted to Ravelry, an online forum for knitters and crocheters. I have recently entered the world of "swaps"  I am a member of several on-line groups. One of them is the Big Bang Theory group made up of fans of the T.V. sitcom. We just has a swap that was show related. One item had to be homemade so I made these home made stitch markers for my recipient to represent rock, paper, scissors, lizard, spock

I am now involved in three other swaps. The starbucks and yarn swap, the flat rate box swap and the Harry Potter summer camp swap.

As for Harry Potter, my camp name is Celestina Pettigrew, which I love, I am in the Billywigs cabin and I am TOTALLY lost.  But I do believe once I get the hang of things it is going to be awesome. I loved the books and actually bought them through Amazon, UK because I wanted the British version of the books. I liked that Harry went on summer holiday instead of summer vacation.  My favorite character is Professor Lupine, mainly because I really liked the actor who played him  Well stay posted as I muddle my way through all these swaps and what is sure to be a very fun summer.
