Snazzy new layout
Ah, I found an acceptable color scheme :3 For now the header image will do. After this weekend I'll make a new header in Photoshop or something, because it's going to bug me that the image doesn't fit. TAKE THAT BLOGGER! I can't wait to get my spoilee so I can get started on my package for this term! I'm so so so excited that we can have the option of hoping for mitt kits! I'm kinda sorta a fingerless gloves/mittens whore.

I pulled out my yarn to start my Endpaper Mitts today. I've almost started the pattern six times, but every time I find a reason to put the pattern away for a rainy day and another one of my eight million projects takes priority. I am determined to make them. Slytherpuff style, in awesome green and yellow!!

I meant to go to the LYS today, but I never got around to it D: Work kept me too late. Oh well, at least I'm officially in Slytherin for this term! (Not that I had much doubt of where I'd be, I sent Orpheus off with my student information as soon as the sign up times started, he has excellent agility)

    Hey Peneolope!

    Here's to another great term! Let's plot for roommates again, and get Verity in on it too! I am planning the endpaper mitts with the yarn you sent me last term...though the dragon scale ones are taking me quite a while!
