So we just finished reading the first Harry Potter book to the boys – it took FOREVER, since we were able to get through 1/3 of a chapter per night at bedtime and there are almost twenty chapters.  The guys really enjoyed finally reading a big chapter book, although I think it was a bit much for my little one.  Ever since we were about halfway through, they decided they want to be wizards.  Every chopstick in the drawer has been commandeered and repurposed into a wand.  And after a few more days, one of my longstanding dreams has come true.

The guys flipped though my well worn copy of Charmed Knits, and decided they both wanted me to knit them a Hogwarts robe- one Gryffindor and one Ravenclaw (I’ve never heard anyone want to be a Ravenclaw ever, have you??)  I’m so excited.  I’ve had this book since before I had kids, with this plan to someday make HP stuff for my future babies, and now I finally can!

No progress shots today.  The only problem with making a wizard’s robe is that it is super boring to look at until you seam it all together.  I’m not there yet- it’s going to be a few weeks, even at full speed.

 And then, on to the next robe.  And then they each want an owl… 🙂
