Jumping Rope! Do it!

I like exercising, but it gets repetitive at times. I get bored. I lose motivation. I’m always looking for something different.

I bought this jump rope a long while ago. Never opened it. It was sitting in my closet. Yesterday I remembered it was there, and I went outside (after much complaining) and walked around, jump roping, here and there. It was fun! It’s something new that’s old. Used to do it all the time when I was young, but haven’t done it in years.

Then I was thinking I should never have stopped! It’s a great way to get in some exercise and the more people the merrier.

Just look at the benefits!

Harry Potter Knitting & Crochet House Cup

I love the Harry Potter books, as I stated in my last post. Well, I was on Ravelry last night and saw that Quietish suggested that I join this group.

Wait…what’s Ravelry, you say? You don’t know what Ravelry is? Well, it’s a great place for all you knitters, crocheters, dyers, spinners and designers! We can share patterns, buy patterns, post blogs, share experiences, join groups, learn new techniques, marvel at others abilities and that’s just to start. You can also keep track of your yarn, hooks, needles, and craft books! I love it! I still have to add a lot of my supplies and books! I have to get them more organized first. XD

Anyhoo, that’s what Ravelry is in a nutshell. If you want to join Ravelry you have to request an invite, which is on their front page. It’s simple and easy, but you do have to wait a couple days. Please leave comments below if anyone thinks I left something out please, (which I most likely have) as I’m kind of still knew to it all.

So, I’m on Ravelry and I get an invite to this group. I think it’s looks really cool! There are rules and if you want to join the HPK&C House Cup, please read them so you know what to do!

Basically you get sorted into a house and you’re given assignments by the different professors. Obviously they’re knit or crochet assignments. Each person gets points for what they’ve made and at the end of term one of the houses wins. I believe the top winner of each house wins a prize. I could be mistaken though.

Doesn’t that sound like fun? I think it does, but I also love HP. 😛

I’m probably leaving out a bunch of other things they do, since I just joined last night. If you love HP and knitting or crochet (and are a member of Ravelry), why not join this group? Well, yeah, if you’re too busy, there’s always the next term. 😀

If you’re not a member of Ravelry (and love knitting and crocheting) why not request an invite? It’s really a lot of fun!
