"A Wrackspurt - they're invisible, they float in through your ears
and make your brain go fuzzy," she said. "I thought I felt one zooming
around in here."
from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
by J.K. Rowling
Anyone else feel like a Wrackspurt got to them this week? Maybe it was the return of the rain and the cold. Maybe it's because J was nursing his second cold in as many months. Maybe it was the two enormous papers I spent all last weekend writing. Or maybe it was a Wrackspurt.
Whatever it was, this week my brain was decidedly fuzzy. No creativity inspired me to post on my blog. Instead, I spent my days either wrapped up in work, or wasting hours watching Grey's Anatomy and eating delivery Thai food (I blame Anna). And maybe I managed a little crochet.
I hope you'll forgive the lack of a recipe this week. Blame the Wrackspurt.
Instead, I'll share this pattern with you, which I used to make this replica of Luna Lovegood's scarf from the Harry Potter movies. I decided to honor Slytherin with this rich green tone, seeing as I never honor Slytherin, and we all know how important house relations are.
Go out and enjoy the sun, and with any luck, we'll be packing away our Luna Lovegood scarves for good by next Friday, and I'll be able to offer some clear-headed fantasy food again. Happy Friday!
