Great End

I am happy with HP. I am happy with the end. I got my copy at Costco yesterday morning, got home put away my items, had lunch with the family & started to read, 12:51pm. I finished the book close to midnight. I have to say that with only 40 pages left I was too tired to finish but when I woke George up to go into bed he asked if I had finished, I told him no I only had 40 pages left, he told me to just finish & went back to sleep.

So I did. It was a quick read, without skimming, I didn’t want to miss a thing. I felt it was a good ending, enough people died to make it exciting but not devastating. And, I loved the Epilogue. I hate it when a series ends but you have no idea what happens later. Very satisfying, that book.

So today I have been working on finishing the Isabella armholes and getting ready to start Clue 4 tomorrow.

  1. This is so freaky, kid. First there’s the knitting, then I read about your suduko affection (I’m a suduko fan too!), then HP! I realized when HP6 came out that I hadn’t read Half Blood Prince – guess I was too busy being retired 🙂 So, I’m in Shasta Co. outside of Lassen Park in our trailer while my Amazon order is probably sitting outside my door with HP5 and soon HP6. Glad to hear you are satisfied with the ending. I’ll be there soon…. I’ll be publishing a knitting blog soon. I’ll keep you “posted”! – Cindy W.

  2. I am about 2/3 of the way through, and doing my best to avoid all spoilers. So far, so good. Okay, so I think I am ready to learn how to knit. So lead me on sis, and tell me where to go to learn. I think I could teach myself, but I really want to learn continental so I can continue holding my yarn in my left hand like I do in crochet. Does mom know how to knit? Maybe I can teach myself on vacation. Got a good suggestion for a book that can teach me?

  3. Loved the book too! I was glad that a lot of what I THOUGHT was going on was right on the mark! I went to Borders on State St. for the party. I only made it until about 11:45 and got too tired to actually wait to get my book. I felt like I absorbed and was part of the whole phenomenon, which was fun. I went back the next day, got my book and had it read by Sunday noon. I cried a bit when I finished. The laaaast one ;(

    I’m about 25 rows into the first chart of clue 4 on MS3. It’s going much easier, now that I’ve subdued the charts! Also, I’m just being more methodical and careful. I had to return my Addi Lace needles cause they smelled strongly metallic and made my hands and stole smell like dirty coins. Got some Inox in the meanwhile, good price but eh. I want my Addi’s back really bad.

    See you Thursday??

  5. Okay, my first suggestion for a book to learn from is Stitch ‘N Bitch, the Knitters handbook. I find it to have great beginner information and they show both continental & ‘the other’ way of knitting.

    And, no mom doesn’t knit anymore (she made dad a sweater in high school & that was enough for her) & has no desire to start again.

    I think you could probably teach yourself how, I certainly did. Books are a wonderful thing! And, so many books now have detailed instructions that I think you’ll do fine.

  6. Oh yes Rowan, I totally agree with you on the book. It was a very satisfying & happy end.

    Good for you for being right up with the Stole on the Clues! I have only done 1 row of clue 4 and will try to get it done asap but I have other projects that are on deadlines for classes & the like. I posted to the SBKnitters group about plans for this THursday knit group.

  9. Okay. I will see if I can sneak into a book store and pick it up, along with some knitting needles to take on vacation tomorrow. I may just have to call you tonight (it’s 12:30 my time, so it’s not even late for you yet), and get some more advice. You’re making me feel more confident all the time!

  10. Well it’s almost 11 & you haven’t called yet. I am still here, awake! I really do think you can teach yourself, I was taught by a turkish woman when I was 13 & had to relearn when I was in high school so I basically taught myself by looking at the half made scarf on the knitting needles from Turkey!
