Merlin’s Pants.

It’s hard to believe that Harry Potter is finally finished. It has taken nearly ten years and it’s amazing to think back on the response, and how the whole thing grew.

(Don’t worry, no spoiler’s here.)

I was eleven years old when the first Harry Potter book was published, and kept age with Harry until the wait time between the books began to increase. There was something special about being the same age as the characters in the books and being able to relate to them.

When it’s all said and done I’m glad the books are finished. It’s tough to wait for a story to be completed. But now what?? It’s also hard to accept that we’re no longer waiting for something that once seemed like it would never end. There is no longer a point to making conjectures about the plot or about who’s going to die.

All in all, J.K. Rowling is a genius and I have little more to say about it except that “Merlin’s pants” is the funniest exclamation I’ve heard in ages.

I finished the yellow linen shirt and the matching blue (cotton) skirt Thursday night, but I have not had the chance to photograph them yet.

Today I also finished the Feather and Fan socks.  It is too dark to photograph them at the moment, but I’ll try to do so soon.  The vine handwarmers are still waiting for their thumb bits, but that should happen soon as well.

In the time being I am finishing some old things and starting some linen pants, as well as doing NOTHING after a long two weeks.

Enjoy Harry Potter 7, everyone!!

    Yeah… as you know, someone may have spoiled the end for me (“I heard that…” etc), which also happened to me with book 6. Inconsiderate meanies. So yeah– I’m not really as motivated to read it now, and it’s not going so well. But it’s okay, I will most likely finish it this week as well. And we can discuss it. Yay!

    Hey, spoilt or not, READ ON – the weaving of plot, backstory(ies) and side-stories is still incredible. Especially keeping everything straight and consistent through the entire septology, plus twining the adolescent hoo-hah we all have gone through into the whole bit.

    Standing Ovation for Rowling!
