Harry Potter and Potty Training

It turns out I was too sick to go to the release party for Harry Potter 7. But Denis, Carrie, Nana and Poppy picked it up for me yesterday on their way to the grocery store. I meant to read it slowly, to savor it since it was the last book…but I couldn’t. I’m sure there are people who haven’t finished reading yet, so all I’ll say is that it was riveting. I plan to re-read the entire series at some point…but I have some sorely neglected knitting I need to do first!

In other news, Carrie isn’t completely potty trained yet, but she is -><- this close. She went and ran those errands yesterday in panties, and went to a public restroom when she needed to go. I haven't changed a single diaper (except at night/first thing in the morning) since Thursday, and there have only been two little accidents. I am so proud of her - and I really can't take much credit for it, it's like a switch flipped and she just figured it out. (Hopefully I didn't just jinx everything...)


  1. Hi! Since IWK’s new blog-zine Knitting Daily has just posted the pdf for the Icelandic Shawl from a years-ago Piecework Magazine, your beautiful photos of your version of the shawl are zooming around the knitting blog-iverse. The photo in the pdf shows only one draped version, and yours are full views and closeups. They are stunning!
    Thank you for the inspiration. You happened to use my favorite color scheme, and I hope to make this shawl myself sooner than later. May I ask that you tell me which yarn you used?

  2. The shawl is absolutely stunning! I agree with you on the peach color. The colorway you have is so pleasing.
    I am fascinated by how many knitters are Harry Potter fans as well. Has anyone else noticed this? Maybe it began with that stripped muffler.
    Either way you have a beautiful journal Sarah.

  3. By the way, I love the Icelandic Shawl too. It just calls to me. I love the colors you made it in. I was thinking of doing it in grays with a dark red and black accents.
    p.s. I get all kinds of compliments on the felted bag you made. And my sister roped into needle felting. Awesome. It really dresses things up!

  4. I really like the Icelandic Shawl also. I love the colors you used and am thinking about doing it in greys with a dark red and black.
    p.s. I get compliments on the bag you made me. Very cool.
