Uugh Muggle trips and poor connections

I had to gout of town for work and while I was sure I would have plenty of time for posting and snitch searching the Internet connection at the hotel was poor and I couldn't stay on long enough to save what I was typing. I had to wait until I got back to the office to have a stable connection. I hope everyone had fun with this round of quidditch.

Hufflepuff Knit along and Duel Status

I have signed on to knit the Dream Swatch Head Wrap and while it isn't onthe needles yet I do have the yarn picked out. I have a hank of Schaefer Yarn's Laurel in the Empress Wu Zhao colorway that is just beautiful. I have been knitting like crazy lately between UFOs that I am tring to complete and Duel Club knitting! I thought for sure that I was a gonner whe I found out the I would be dueling with Cassandra Grubbly Plank this time. We both finished our hats on the same day but she beat me to the owlry. Maybe her owl will get lost on its way here....
Oh well, I was surprised to have made it to round three.
