My new passion.....

There is nothing like kicking back to drink a beer and watch Katie play Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. And you know that I've had a bad week when I laugh at her chasing other Hogwort students (especially Malfoy) while hitting them with the Flipendo spell, as they run screaming away in the halls. She also strayed off the flying course and was yelled at by Madame Hooch. Then she found a door that opened to a drop off on the side of the building, and she jumped! He may have been the boy who lived, but not for long with her at the controls. Don't get me wrong, I am an avid Harry Potter fan, and she pretty much stalks Daniel Radcliff. I have all the movies, have read all the books to date, and am willing to knit any of the HP patterns the girls may want (and maybe a few for myself, too). But you have to admit, it's funny! Any who! On to my new passion.

This is my new passion:

The Everyday Namaste bag. I must have one. I will scrape and save every penny, if I have to, just to get this bag. I love it. And, I need to decide which color:

I like the Avocado, but not for everyday. I am thinking Black or Chocolate. What do you think? It'll probably be a couple of months before I can order it. Another of my new passions is Trekking XXL # 126, as seen on Knitting Iris's, Claudia's, and Alicia's blogs. I first saw it on Claudia's, and really liked it them. But the more I see it, the more I want it. Now, to find it. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. Otherwise, the next time I go into the Knitter's Mercantile, I'll ask if they can order it for me.

Now, in the words of my manager, "It's been the longest, short week ever." I'm gonna kick back, finish my beer, knit on my Trek Along sock and watch Katie have fun playing Harry Potter. Flipendo!

Hola Tonia, what a faboulous bag!!! It's very difficult to choice the color, the dark pink and reds are very nice and the avocado, mmm, looks very elegant.
This bag is for knitters, isn't? I hope you are enjoying the presents, chau!!!, your secret pal, Ariadna.

I like the bag a lot. The green catches my eye, but like you say - every day color?

I recently purchased the set of 4 Harry Potter movies. I haven't watched the 1st one or the 4th one yet. I really like the middle two. I haven't read any of the books. I've been eyeing patterns on the net. I'd like to do a Quidditch sweater and Weasley sweaters for me and the boys. I also like Hermione's hat and mittens pattern, too!
