Wibbly-Wobbly Timey-Wimey


As you can see, I have a tiny!Timelord visiting, he's travelling around the world with his TARDIS and visits crafters. But somehow he must have gotten the date wrong after we were on a trip in the TARDIS, as the weekend is already over and I didn't have time to post on Saturday.

Last week has been really busy, as I've been preparing to sell yarn and handmade items on a market - but it was a giant waste of time, almost didn't sell a thing.

From today on I should have more time and will hurry to finish my kit for Lizzie.

Wow, that was fun

First of all, sorry that I've been so quiet but the stupid muggle technology called 'Laptop' refused to let me write to this blog while I was on vacation in the UK. I'm going to give you a bit of a report here, more about the conventions I attended can be found on my muggle blog


After a long day (I had to use muggle transportation like airplanes, subways and trains) I arrived in Birmingham to attend a convention called The Hub 3 - it was all about a TV series called Torchwood. To blend in, I made a costume related to one of the characters, but of course I femalized it. Below is a picture of the original costume:

Unfortunately, James Marsters (the actor who played John Hart) couldn't be there as he had an accident on set of his new project, but it still was a lot of fun. I got to know a lot of nice people and will try to stay in contact with some of them. To my surprise, there were a lot of German people as well and I feared I would be the only one. More photos can be found in this flickr Album and as I said before, a full report is on my muggle blog.

Then I spend a few days in London, just walking around and visiting museums - but it was really crowded everywhere and I didn't get to visit the Science Museum or the Natural History Museum because of the masses trying to get in there. No way I'm going to queue over an hour to get into a museum just to not be able to see anything because it is filled with little kids. Next time I probably shouldn't go there during half term.


The next weekend I went to another convention about all things Joss Whedon has created and as it was around Halloween it was called Hallowhedon. This time, James Marsters was there - even if he still was in pain because of his accident (something with his spine, a slipped disk if I got it right). Once again, I had lots of fun with my friend Birgit (on the pic with me) and got to know a lot of nice and interesting people. The outfit on the photo was handmade, I crochet a triangle shawl and a skirt (with a petticoat style musslin skirt underneath) - thanks to handmade jewelry by Roseworksjewelry, which she custom made for me, I could wear the shawl like wings for the Halloween party.


And of course I got a photo taken with James Marsters - I just had to wear my John Hart outfit, even if it was the wrong convention. It was so worth all the effort I put into it, as James Marsters commented on it and told me he loved it *swoon*. Again, more photos on flickr and a full report on my muggle blog.

Oh, this is going to be fun... I'm participating in the crochet league of Shuntbumps and in the first round I'm up against Clara Clovenhove, my team captain. The pattern will be released in a few minutes, then I'll weild my crocet hook to hopefully push her off her broom - because captain or not, I want to win this duel

Wohooo... I made it into the Quidditch Team, I'm now flying for the Wigtown Wanderers. This will be so much fun, can't wait for the Quidditch season to start

Package received and sent

A few days ago, I received a really nice kit from Helga Ze Horrid, when I opened it, I found this big bag filled with goodies:

In the kit were tons of great things:
  • a kit to crochet a cute dragon (pattern, 2 colors of cotton yarn, crochet hook)
  • candy and chocolate
  • handknit ornaments
  • a Ravenclaw bookscarf
  • a small project bag with a dragon
  • a basilisk tooth to wear as a pendant
  • stickers
  • tattoos
  • a garden gnome to water my plants
  • colored felt
  • a small bag with stickers, tattoos, candy and a toy for my son

He loved his gifts as much as I loved mine, he immediately wanted one of the tattoos and held it proudly into the camera for you all to see:

Thanks, Helga, that really was a great kit and it was nice to get to know you a bit through this swap. And sorry that it took me so long to post about this, but my computer was not behaving at all

still waiting

I know, I said last week that my package was on it's way, but I read just before I wanted to send my owl that Lavender moved. And as I don't want her kit to get lost, it is waiting here for her to confirm her address. I'm not sure whether I have her old address or the new one.

Saturday, August 1, 2009

Owl on it's way

I know, I have been terribly quiet this term, but I have packed the kit for Lavender and send an owl to her today. Hopefully it will arrive soon.

I wanted to add so many more things, but somehow I always went over the budget with them so I had to limit myself. But I'm sure she will like it as I picked up some hints she dropped on her blog. Now back to my busy life and my son - when kindergarten has vacation, he keeps me really busy

Saturday, July 18, 2009

time is fleeting...

Wow, yet another week is gone, and I really don't know how that happened... My son kept me rather busy this week as the weather was great and we spent lots of time on the playground or in the park.

But I've made some progress on the kit for Lavender, just need to put the finishing touches to a few things and then I'm ready to ship, hopefully I'll manage to get it done by next week.

And of course I've done some knitting and crochet, but didn't make as much progress there as I intended to.

Now I'm off again, to a baptism and a birthday party, so I'll have to hurry and get dressed.

Summer Camp Game #3

When I encounter a boggart, I always see a big, scary spider... I really hate those 8-legged beasts and they scare the hell out of me. But then I imagine the spider surrounded by baby toys and stuffed animals. and it has a big pacifier and a teddy bear on top. That looks so stupid, I can't help but laugh about it - and gone is the boggart.

The truth...

Last week I was posting 3 truths and a lie and now it's time to reveal the truth...

  1. I've never read a single Harry Potter book: true - but I listened to the audiobooks of them all
  2. I've already visited Africa, but otherwise stayed in Europe: true - I've been to Morocco as a toddler, so I've been in Africa. And that's the only trip so far that brought me out of Europe
  3. I'm fluent in 3 languages, including my native language German: lie - I'm only fluent in English and German, due to lack of practice I forgot almost all of my French and Spanish. Just have passive knowledge there
  4. I have never eaten shellfish: true - and I never will, as I'm allergic to fish and all kinds of seafood. The allergy was detected when I was little and eating fish fingers for the first time, so they are the only fish I've ever eaten.
The only one who guessed this right was Gryphon, congrats.

Week 1 games - part three

Finally I got around to posting the last part of this....

I have look through my spoilers and spoilees projects on Ravelry and had a hard time to decide about a favorite one, as they have made a lot of great things.

Helga Ze Horrid is my spoiler and I just had to favorite her Smily-longies, now I just need to find a little one who could wear them, as my son is already too old. But friends of us had their third child lately, so I might have an opportunity to get them done.

And my spoilee Lavender Ollivander has made some really beautiful crochet items. After looking at them for a while, I decided that her Spidey-Ghan is my favorite, as my son loves Spiderman. I had shown this pattern to him and asked if he wanted it, but he decided that it would be 'cooler' if I made it in black and white. Kids can be crazy sometimes.

Ravenclaw homework - Mad Libs part 2

I have to tell you about the hot time I had in Diagon Alley last weekend! My friend Hermione Bagnold and I decided that we really needed some new 4mm crochet hook and had to get over to Diagon Alley immediately. Hermione put on their hat because it was thin and did not want to get a cold. I grabbed my keys and we headed to the trains.

While waiting for our train to Diagon Alley, we chatted with Emma Wigworthy and Antonio Dela Weasley who were planning to visit Gringott’s. Antonio did not want to go alone because he was collecting a pot and that was very big and brought Emma along for their excellence in protecting spells.

The train arrived and off we went. Our seats were very comfortable and the train sped along towards Diagon Alley and we were there in a flash! Before heading to the Yrsa’s Yarn Shoppe, we went into a paper clip that sells the silver pretzels!!! As we neared the paper clip, we noticed quite a lot of commotion! The paper clip owner had set the pretzels-making machine and it had gotten stuck! pretzels were shining everywhere! I ducked as a cream-filled pretzel came shining right at me and it polished into Professor Snape’s skirt just as they walked through the door! A vanilla pretzel did a nose dive and splattered all over the corner most elaborately! We made it out of the store just as a pretzel frog and a kettle of Bertie Bott’s every flavor beans collided in a rainstorm of goo!

Since we were still dirty, we walked the five blocks over to Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlor! I decided on a cone with chilli ice cream and Hermione got the hot fudge sundae with extra cream! Yummy! Professor Snape had made their way over here as well after the incident at the pretzels shoppe and had chosen a tea float.

After that, we passed Gringott’s and headed to Yrsa’s Yarn Shoppe! I tried not to look at the beautiful skeins of silk and bamboo and wool and instead, headed toward the 4mm crochet hooks while Hermione stopped to paint the stitch markers. I found a bright 4mm crochet hook made out of steel and made my purchase. Hermione kept hedging between the 4mm crochet hook she came for and a pattern for a cardigan. She chose the cardigan pattern and we walked the back towards the train station just in time to make the 12:30 train.

After sitting down, we noticed Emma Wigworthy and Antonio dela Weasley were on the train as well. Antonio looked quite small to have the pot with them. Emma however did not look smalled at all. While waiting to go into the vault, a baby goblin waiting in line with his Mommy, had seen on Emma getting treacle toffees all over their clean robes! The smell really was just horrendous! Apparently, Emma’s protecting spells don’t work well against treacle toffees!! We made our way to a less smelly compartment and talked about how we were going explain missing Professor Lupin’s lecture on the valuable ways dragons are working with the Department of Mysteries in solving unsolvable books!

My kit arrived

Look what the wonderful Pandora Phelps sent me:

  • a beautiful, big project bag
  • a small purse
  • a wand cozy
  • a golden snitch
  • rosewood dpns
  • a mini bamboo crochet hook
  • a wooden shawl pin
  • a Ravenclaw bookmark
  • two balls of blue soysilk
  • a pattern for Evangeline gloves to make with the soysilk
  • a ball of KnitPicks sport and shine in red, red pipecleaner and safety eyes
  • a crochet dragon pattern to make with the above items
  • beeswax chapstick
That's an awesome kit, I can't wait to use the soysilk - never had soysilk before, but it feels wonderfully soft and will make great gloves. As I love dragons, the dragon will be fun to make too - I'll just have to keep it away from my son.

The shawl pin is perfect, as it is really lightweight, I think I'll need to wear my shawl tomorrow so I can use it.

I've never seen such a cute, tiny crochet hook, it might go directly to my project bag and help me pick up dropped stitches.

I'm curious about the rosewood needles, never used them before, but they look beautiful.

Now I'll have to go, want to fondle the yarn a bit more and perhaps I'll use the hour or so I got before picking my son up from kindergarten to cast on for the gloves.

Thanks again, Pandora, you've been a great spoiler. It was always nice to get a message from you and the kit is really great.

Easter eggs

Today I painted Easter Eggs with my little wizard to be. We had lots of fun and created some beautiful eggs - to help the Easter Bunny of course. You know, the Easter Bunny is so busy with getting all the eggs coloured and hiding them for all the kids, it could do with some help.

So my son and I grabbed our brushes and did some colouring magic to the previously white eggs. And the results are really pretty, don't you think?

Just wanted to let you all know that I'm still alive... I'm having a great time at London so far and will board a coach tonight to go to Edinburgh. I'm really excited to meet some of you there but I still have another 8 hours to go.

As for knitting, I've been making lots of tiny preemie hats for SPEW which I will hand to Emma Wigworthy on our meeting.

And I found some beautiful beads to make stitchmarkers for my spoilee.

where am I today?

As I told you last week, I'm really busy at the moment.

Last Tuesday I had a 5 hour train ride to visit my parents as my dad had his 60th birthday. The party was Wednesday, Thursday was needed to clean up all the mess and today I packed my suitcase again.

But I'm not heading back home, I'll fly to London tomorrow. There I'll spend 5 days all on my own, as my son is staying with my parents. After those 5 days, I'll travel to Edinburgh to meet a few fellow Hogwarts students over the weekend, then back to London, another night at the hotel there and by Tuesday, March 24 I'll fly back to my parents place.

One day later, I'll finally head back home with my son in tow and everything will be back to normal again.

I'll do my best to post next week, but I don't know if I'll have internet access as I don't own a laptop computer and my cell phone is too old to be used for browsing the web.

Don't have too much fun without me and cross your fingers as I don't want too much rain for my vacation.

another week is gone

And once again another week is gone...

I thought I'd share some pics with you of my latest crochet project - a beautiful shawl made with super soft microfiber yarn:

And of course I'm still working on my kit, I'm almost done with it - right now I'm about to crochet a cute little something that will go into the package as well.

I'm so excited, I'll leave to visit my parents by Tuesday, then fly to London next Saturday and meet with other students the Friday after that in Edinburgh... so I most likely will be rather quiet during the next two weeks, but I hope to be able to report about my vacation in between.

Where did this week go?

My muggle family kept me so busy this week, I didn't even find time to do my homework *hangs head in shame*

But I found some time for crafting and started putting the kit together for my pal. I don't have everything yet, but it's making good progress: yarn is dyed, knitting part of the bag is done and some treats are bought.

I found my love for crochet again and have made a few small projects this week to get the hang of it and now I'm working on a beautiful shawl... I wish I knew how to enchant my knitting needles to knit socks by themselves, but they never manage to get the heel right - leaves me no other choice than to knit them myself, even if I hate the yarn a friend of mine chose for her socks.

That's all for today, I really hope to find more time next week

I've been tagged

Okay, just some silly amusement... I got tagged by Bevin Rae for this

Here is what you do:

1. Go to your pictures on your computer
2. Open the 6th folder
3. Choose the 6th picture
4. Show the picture on your blog and write something about it.
5. Invite 6 new people to this challenge.
6. Link to them and let them know they have been tagged.

This is me and my son - not even one year old back then. We were at the wedding of some friends and as they had a medieval wedding I made a tunic for my son and bought a beautiful green and cream coloured dress with wide sleeves and lacing in the front for myself. You can't see much of the dress here, but I still love to wear it.

Now, who to tag with this? I think I'll look for some people I know already as well as some I'd like to get to know better: Firts my two swap pals Thalia Tinkwych and Pandora Phelps, then my spoilee from last term and spoiler a few terms ago Emma Wigworthy, and of course a few fellow Ravenclaw students Rowena Bladvak, Waverly Trimble and Agatha Vablatsky

I got my swap pals

I've already started planning the kit I want to send to my spoilee Thalia Tinkwych, a Gryffindor. I can't wait to get to know her a bit better and find out something about her preferences. After all those great kits I got during the last terms, I'm more than motivated to put an awesome kit together myself.

And I heard from my spoiler, Pandora Phelps who's in Gryffindor too. She seems to be really nice and obviously we seem to have some things in common.

Unfortunately I don't have more time to write right now, I've got lots to do today, but I'll be back soon.

new term

I can't believe it, the new term is starting soon... I'm so excited to get to know some new people, as I hope to be in Ravenclaw this year. A new house means new friends - at least I hope so.

And of course I'm looking forward to all the fun activities here and the knitting swap.
