We had an awesome Friday evening while waiting for the HBP. It's always wonderful to see so many people excited about books. The store created some sort of Harry Potter scavenger hunt, so it seemed as though children were running around in circles. So while the god-kids and the cousins joined the others in the circling, I found a quiet spot in military history and knit. I've made some headway on the shawl, but as my weekend was entirely devoted to Harry Potter, I didn't get much accomplished.
...no worries, NO SPOILERS here...but I couldn't resist this...
'...I was merely reading the Muggle magazines,' said Dumbledore. 'I do love knitting patterns.'
