It's been awhile!

Wow! I had totally forgotten I had this blog. I can't believe it's been 5 years since I posted anything.

I will do my best to post here more often. I am planning to start some new projects soon. Not necessarily Harry Potter related, but we shall see...Especially with Deathly Hollows Part 1 coming out in a few months.

I did make a cloak to go along with the scarves. It was my first attempt at sewing with a machine and using a pattern. It didn't come out too terrible for a first time project.

Quidditch Sweater almost done!

Working now on the second sleeve of the sweater. I ran out of yarn and couldn't find it at any of the stores, but then Michael's had it so I bought 2 just to have more than enough to finish the sweater and make a new Hufflepuff scarf in the correct pattern.

Then this weekend I bought 8 skeins of Homespun to make my Weasley sweater. The tweeds seem to itchy for me. I was going to get a chennile or something really soft and non-arcrylic, but I could not pass up the sale price at Hobby Lobby this weekend. And I finally found 16" circular needles. They sell the ones you can change the needle size or cable length on. Now I only need to learn to cast on properly on them.

Off to finish the sweater...

Mission Accomplished

I completed the Hufflepuff scarf this morning. Tassles and all.

And for it being only my second completed project in a week, I think it looks pretty darn good and I'm proud of myself.

Now on to my Gryffindor scarf and hopefully a couple of Weasley sweaters. Or maybe Quiddich sweaters, those may be easier and it house colors too. Hmmm... we'll see.

My First Harry Potter Scarf

This is my first time blogging. So bear with me.

I finally finished my very first scarf, actually my first project ever. I started this Ravenclaw PS/SS style scarf SEVERAL months ago. Did maybe 6" or so.

Then I picked it back up last week and finished the remaining 6' 6" of it. Took almost a week to complete. My dd abosolutely loves it!

I'll post a photo as soon as I take one and figure out how to post it.

Now I am working on a Hufflepuff PoA scarf. I am almost half way done with it.
