potter revealed

I had Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in my hot little hands (embellished by a HP7 tattoo! (which is still on my hand and amusing my co-workers)) by 12:10 am on Saturday. Rudely, I read while we had a glass of wine and Hubby chatted with some friends after we got our books. They didn't seem to care, thankfully.

I did sleep, and upon waking on Saturday, I read through until the finish at about 4pm. And I didn't peek at the end ONE BIT. Lots of tears, but I was really satisfied. I still have questions about some of the plot twists, so if anyone wants to discuss, please let me know!

This weekend we head to Portland, OR for a friend's wedding. Not only is this a vacation (thus allowing yarn purchasing!), I'm taking an intarsia class at the Yarn Garden on Saturday. Our hotel is also just down the street from Knit/Purl. Wee! It also means that when we get back next Tuesday my Knit From Your Stash pledge is over! However, I've still got so much yarn that I'm going to really try to not go crazy for the rest of the year. Ideally, I'd like to keep my yarn only in the bins under the bed. I've got a lot of stash reduction to go to meet that goal.

Thank you for not giving away any spoilers. My DH always orders the Harry Potter books from England, so our copy isn't here yet! And then he gets to read it first.
