Blame that Potter

Drachenwolle Sock Yarns, originally uploaded by elemmaciltur.

I had been toying with the idea to unplug for as long as I haven't got the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in my hand and haven't read it yet....but alas, I came to the conclusions that I shouldn't need to, since:

1) I read Knit-Blogs...need I say more?
2) Non Knit-Blogs that I read are from sensible people who won't spoil the fun for other people
3) I don't do Harry Potter forums (well, I'm in a couple, but I don't really hang out there)
4) The only other surfing I'm doing is to research for my papers
5) Oh yeah, and I stalk the yarnies, too

So, as you can see, I don't think I'm in danger of having the last book spoilt for me by some idiotic buggers who sold the book sooner than other people or that jerk who took photos of the book content.

Oh....and DHL's being as slow as....errr...well, I guess it's their normal pace. But when it says "DHL Special" then I'd have thought they'd be faster. But well, I still haven't got my copy yet....and so I won't be leaving the house until I have it in my hands.

Aside from that, we were supposed to record the next episode of Knitters Uncensored today...that is, until I realised that Deathly Hallows' coming out today and I had to postpone it. :-p

Anyway, at the least I received a package yesterday. Yup, my latest Stash Enhancing eXperience with Drachenwolle! Aren't they yummy? This time, I got two hanks of the merino-silk-ramie mix (the two top ones) and two hanks of merino-linen mix (the two bottom ones). I'm looking forward to knit up something with the merino-linen, just because I've never worked with that kind of fibre mix before...

...and the bottom right one, don't the colours just remind you of Lime & Violet??!

Y'all have a great weekend!
