Some late night learning...
Ok, so its not fabulous but it is ok and that is good enough. 
The teachers at my school have all decided to dress up as a Harry Potter characters for Halloween.  Being the librarian, I can't skip out on a book/movie themed plan, so, I decided I wanted to be Mrs. Weasley.  I love her!
So, in searching for ideas for my costume, I came a cross these pictures...

YES!  That is the perfect costume!  I LOVE that sweater.  I knew I would not be able to buy one from a store so I started looking on ETSY.  You definitely can buy one on ETSY to the tune of about $400 and the time for the person to make it.  So, I decided it was past time for me to learn this crochet stuff.  I have yet to finish a crochet project that I have started!
My husband just kinda laughed at me when I said I was ordering the pattern from 

Not only do I have to finish the sweater by October 30th to wear to school, I also have to make me one of those fabulous aprons! And wash it about 50 times to make it look worn out :) 

I am still wondering if I will get a wig or if Mrs. Weasley will have a nice short haircut.  My hair is currently about that color- a little more brown, but it is short.  I will have to think about that one because I do not like wigs!

I bought the fabric for my Oklahoma Backroads border today.  Maybe you will see a picture of the flimsy soon...
