Dueling club

So I have joined the dueling club. I have completed my task and it has been sent by owl. I kind of messed up in my first attempt and here it is...

It is way too small... it doesn't even fit my littlest house elf (3yro) so I had to start over.

The new one is finished and sent out by owl but will not be shown until it makes it to it's destination.

ETA: It has made it to it's destination so here it is...

She has said that she loves it and it fits well so that is good. It was made with some stash Malabrigo so i am sure that is will get lots of use this winter season... of course in Las Vegas I am not sure how much use there is for a winter hat... I guess at night it gets quite cool. This was lots of fun and I can't wait for the next round.

Picture Day!

So today was picture day and I got all dressed up and was all clean and read for picture day then this happened...

Somehow it gave me a picture of this Dork... I figured maybe someone jinxed the camera or something so I asked to have my picture taken again with a different one and it just got worse...

I think maybe some Slytherins may have had a hand in this... So much for picture day.
