Awesome Kit Received From Lizzie Wychwood!

I can hardly contain my excitement while writing this post. How does one report such awesomeness in writing!? Lizzie sent me a kit themed around Hermione Granger, my favorite character.

Lizzie's owl Specky showed up this afternoon, pecking at the window and soaked from the rain. Of course I brought him inside to warm his tailfeathers and rest before his return trip. I think I've convinced him to stay a few days since we're supposed to have sunny and warm weather after today.

Now here's the package!

All the little wrapped packages neatly stacked inside.

So many little packages!

Official Hogwarts packing paper.

Everything Hermione would need while traveling (and running from Death Eaters).

Black beaded bag with a change of clothes, portrait of Phineas Nigellus Black, and Essence of Dittany.

One of Hermione's favorite books, by the dreamy Gilderoy Lockheart.

Hermione pin and a tin with more SPEW buttons!

Hermione finger puppet and Crookshanks. How fun!

Yum! Mmmm. ::drool drool::

Fun fat quarters for some stitch-witchery!

Sweet House Elf knits!!

A wool diaper cover and lanolin for waterproofing.

Matching sweater and socks

Look closer: perfect for a baby!

Lovely cotton chenille yarn that I can't wait to try out.

The softest cotton yarn I've ever felt!

And of course a new book for my library!

A book specifically for baby knits! There are some sweet momma knits, too.


I can't thank you enough for your thoughtful kit, Lizzie!!


  1. I was uber excited when I saw what Lizzie was sending and I couldn't wait for you to get the kit. How awesome is it!!

  2. I'm so glad you like it, and that the chocolate didn't melt and ruin it all! The yarn is for you to dye and knit up something lovely for yourself or bump - of course you can leave it natural coloured if you like it as is. Enjoy!

  3. Isn't Lizzie the greatest spoiler ever?! It's really no wonder she's won Best Kit multiple times!!!

  4. Wow! That is awesome! I love the pin.

  5. Totally lovely. The baby items are amazing and I totally love the diaper cover! (Wishing I had little ones to knit these up for!!!) Lizzie, as usual, you are amazing!

  6. Great kit!!! Love the SPEW buttons!!

  7. Awww! The baby stuff is so cute! Great Job, Lizzie!

  8. What's that glitter of gold & silver?


  9. This snitch was found by Gryffindor's Seeker Celestina Pettigrew during the 6th match of HSKS10.
