Endings and Beginnings ...

I finished Mandy's Candy Bag today. This was super fun to knit. When I saw the pattern on NH Knitting Mama's blog I knew this yarn was in my stash and was PERFECT for this project.

I am not sure what I am going to do with this one, but I like it a lot and I might just keep it for myself to store small knitting notions.

I am almost finished Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I saw the movie last month and this is the first book in the series I have read. With the last book hitting shelves I decided to start here and read books 5 and 6 so that I can read 7 with everyone else. I am hoping that I get through them all before hearing any information that spoils the story for me.

I have cheated on my yarn diet :o( I placed an order with Knit Picks to get some things for a swap pal and could not resist ordering another item or two to get over the minimum required for free shipping. So I have purchased 4 skeins of sock weight yarn yesterday. Also the other day I was at the yarn store purchasing some yarn for a swap (which doesn't count against my yarn diet) and had to get some cotton yarn for a hat for the daughter of a woman I work with ... hey if its not for me does it count against my yarn diet?!?! LOL!!
