Everyone's projects look awesome! I'm jealous because I'm still slogging through my Bluebell. (I'm on the ribbing part of the body, and it's just going by SO slowly!)

Well, I finished this one about three weeks ago, but here's my Gryffindor Two-Tone Shrug:



I don't know if it belongs here or in one of the Harry Potter KALs...

And here's my Alexandra ballerina top, courtesy of my bathroom mirror (sleeves to be added later, since I already went and bought all the yarn...but I kind of like it without the sleeves!):

Yup, that's where I am too.  Borrrrring.

Gummy, I'm in love with the Gryffindor shrug.  I need to make one to impress all my HP obsessed fans.  (I've never read the books.... shame on me!)

I've only read all the books ONCE, which is apparently just as shameful...

and only my knitting friends were impressed by the shrug Sad oh well.

Perhaps you could add a nice felt crest?  Don't they have crests on their jackets in HP?

My first project from the book is complete!

The Back to School U-Neck vest!






I used 7.5 balls of Knitpicks Wool of the Andes & it took me about 2 weeks of very leisurely knitting. I love it & I think this will get a lot of wear.

This is my first post-I'm very excited to learn from everyone out there and get more inspiration to do more (and better) knitting.  Cheesy Right now I am obsessed with Stephanie Japel's Fitted Knits. I've completed the Back to School Vest and the Bold and Bulky Cardigan:

On needles currently are the Puff Sleeve Cardigan and the Cozy V-Neck. I'm very excited about both of these so hopefully they will turn out well.

Quick question - I'm about to start the sleeves on my Bluebell, and I am wondering how you "join" the yarn. Since the stitches were separated from the main body early on, there isn't actually a "working yarn" to work with (since that working yarn went on to make the body), so what do I do? Just make a slip knot and work with 15 stitches in the sleeves instead of the 14 the book told me to separate out?

Sorry if this is a stupid question. This is the first time I've had this issue.
