Many Thanks, Secret Pal!

I received my last package today from my Secret Pal who is: Marvelous Madam Mimm's

It has a cool Harry Potter theme! Observe:

The yarn is just so delightful! Soft and comforting. And there is a pattern in the book for a lovely shawl, called "The Invisibility Shawl." :-) I will definitely be using this yarn to make that shawl. To add to the Harry Potter theme, the yarn itself is patterned after the Chinese Fireball dragon, which is one of the dragons featured in the Tri-Wizard Tournament from The Goblet of Fire (book 4). Here's a close-up of the yarn:

The Charmed Knits book is, of course, also inspired by Harry Potter. There are many really nice patterns in there! My favorite, though has to be the knitted owl "Errol." Here is posed my very own little Chinese Fireball on the Errol pattern page. I hope you can see how cute the owl is. I can't wait to make one!

And yes, as you may have noticed, nestled in that box among some interesting Harry-Potter sweets is more Rifftrax! This time, the riff for Eragon, which is a movie that I actually have not seen! So watching it with the Rifftrax will be awesome!

So thank you so, so much, Secret Pal! :-)

So very glad you enjoyed. I was hoping you didn't already have either the book or the RiffTrax. *g*

BTW - the same nice lady who dyed Fireball yarn also does one called "Hedwig" *g* Google for Sunshine yarns Etsy and you'll find her.
