Absolutely Charming

As I am whizzing along in book 6 of the Harry Potter series, I am pleased to announce that I have finally made it in to the year 2007.

As of Thursday night, I own a copy!
And I've knitted an elf hat!

Paddington heard me talking to The Professor about the hat and asked if he could model it.
"It's not going to fit you," I pointed out. "The elf hat is much too large for your head and will slip down over your eyes."
"How about if I wear it over my own yellow hat?" Paddington begged.
"I think it will still look too big and a little silly," I replied.
"Please, please, please, oh please, let me put it on anyway! I'll be just like a house elf!" he cried.
So I relented and said, "OK," and took his picture.
Paddington is very happy with the results, but I still think it looks like a little bear from Darkest Peru trying to appear much more grown up than he really is.
Well, it is sorta, kinda, cute, isn't it?

Silly Little Paddington
