hi, i just joined today. i been want to make a HP scarf for a while, but couldn't find the right colors and couldn't decide what house to knit. Soooo my friend made me take a sorting quiz to find out and i'm a hufflepuff, so i'm gonna knit a SS/Cos Hufflepuff scarf. having people know that i'm supposed to be making one will motivate me for a big project.

btw, can anyone give me yarn recomendations that come in the colors that aren't too expensive?

if u dont mind acrylic, i suggest lion brand wool ease in buttercup and black, or caron simply soft in lemonade(its a bit bright of a yellow) and black. both kinds are under $3 per skein. for a 6oz (315yd) simply soft, youll probably need 2 skeins of the main color. if you use the wool ease (197/skein), you'll probably need double that. both are machine washable.

im making a hogwarts one. im using simply soft in autumn red and wool ease in gold. they have the same gauge also.

im on the 9th repeat! more than halfway there!

oh good. i'm glad i'm not the only one still working on mine. Smiley i'm making a hufflepuff scarf in blue and pale grey wool-ease on size 8s. it's double-knit, so not -technically- worked in the round. i'm doing the trapped bar pattern but for some reason i'm doing 3 rows of silver instead of two rows.

i started this before PoA came out, that's how long i've been working on this thing. i had to put it aside to make one for my friend that had to be finished before she went on vacation and then i got bored so i started working on other projects. maybe with someone else working on theirs i'll get a kick in the pants. Smiley

I know what you mean, lechaton, about how easy it is to put this aside -- it's so boring! No wonder people invented cables, bobbles, and the like.

I made one scarf last year, for the Goblet of Fire movie, to give to a friend. It was so hard to give up after all that inane work that another one was soon on the needles, but without the motivation of another movie (I think Order of the Phoenix comes out Nov 2007), I'm stuck.

Just keep going! Like Dory in Finding Nemo: Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming...

Whee so I finally picked up my Slytherin scarf that I started like half a year ago again.

I'm not knitting in the round or anything- it's just the most basic a scarf can get, lol.

But I'm pretty happy with the progress! 10 rows per stripe, and now I'm working on the 13th stripe! Cheesy

That's a good idea. I really like the Simply Soft autumn red color, but I didn't consider it for a Hogwarts scarf because of there not being a suitable gold color in SS. Your progress pictures look really good.

aww thanks, i really do like the feel of Simply Soft and i think the gold is a pretty good match. i worried the worsted weight would be bulky but at the rather large gauge (US10.5needles) it has a nice drape and it feels great around my neck =)

i only have a few repeats to go now.

and now that i bought the boye interchangeables set (50% off joann coupon!), i no longer have to use DPNs. I'm so excited! I'll be able to knit knit knit on a 16'' circular with no changing needles or magic loop! I've put away this project for a few months because of school craziness. After I finish a WIP, im totally going to finish it. i just cut my hair super short and need scarves!

Good for you, Silbi, for doing Locks of Love! I sent them some hair once and it felt great.

Best of luck with the scarf! These recent posts have inspired me to pick up mine and, unlike the one I knit last year, it's actually fun! Maybe because there isn't the pressure to finish it before the next movie (which isn't for quite a while, i believe).

I've finally got started on a SS/COS style HP scarf a while back, and have been working on it here and there. It's gryffindor (As if you didn't know), and here is a pix of it!  Wink



At first i thought it would be waaay too wide, but the more I watch the movies, the better I feel, especially in the 4th movie.  Smiley I'm on the 6th stripe and plan on knitting 19.

silbi, I admire you if you can knit on dpns, when trying to make a hat, I had so much troubles changing from circular to dpns, so I had my mom teach me the magic loop method. It looks really good, maybe (someday in the far future, the way my life is looking) I'll make a POA/GOF version, I'm beginning to warm up to them, but am still faithful to the block stripes! Lol, but the new version is great too.  Smiley
