These are all pre-blocking, itscute?  The first looks pretty minor & fixable with blocking to me!

The knitting-in is odd.  How much of a tail are you trying to knit in? It's kind of like the double-knit transition--you don't need to work the whole tail in with that technique. Smiley

well it just seems like if I try to knit in with a short tail, the ends always pop out, so I wanted to knit with a LONG tail... maybe that's the issue... perhaps I should go thru and take out such long ends...

I 3 needle bind off on the ends.   Duplicated my friend's initial...Then I sew closed the beginning end... and then I decided NO fringe for you!  So squashed the scarf a few times and pronounced it finished.  I rather like it.



Finished: Dec 3 2007, 5:00am
Pattern: Atypically.knits House Scarf
Started: Oct 28 2007
Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash x 2
(ColNo: 893 ( Burgundy), ColNo: 877 (yellow))
Needle: Clover 16? Circ US 8 Bamboo.

I have decided to get over the bulky double knit in thing... and just adjust the tension on the knit in with the jogless a bit... I left one color change without the jogless jog, and honestly I hate it.  I hate it more than the weird bulky jogless jog funky thing... so i say, i pick the lesser of the two evils.

the weave in ends issue, i think it's just in the way I was knitting, the tension was different.  I was using a larger needle, thus emphasizing the stitches.

I liked working with the Cascase yarn... I might go get me more cascade 220 for another scarf, it's quite warm, and i like it without the fringe... i have yet to knit myself one of these... isn't that how it always is.... we're just too busy knitting for other people, that knitting for yourself gets ignored.

Congrats on finishing it, itscute! It still looks great, even through all of the problems you had.

I've had to put my Slytherin traped bar off for now- even though I love knitting gifts, I miss making myself things. Soon though.

Hey Guys!

All of your scarves are great! I have been making a Gryffindor scarf, but I am thinking of stopping. I am using more of a yellow, not a gold, so it looks like I support USC. lol. I really can't do 11 more blocks of that trapped bar pattern unless I am in love with it. Haha.

So, I have some Ravenclaw colored yarn here, and I am going to start tonight! I am going to curl up with HP5(Or 4..or..3? Which one? Lol) and get started!

I am on Harry Potter 6 (HBP) Right now, and I am so mad. I was looking for Harry Potter avatars, and someone spoiled what happens in this book! Garhg..oh well. Also, my cousin insists on telling me things, so I have to pull his hair quite often to shut him up. I threaten him with a stab in the eye with my size 13 needles(not using those on the project! lol)

I'll get pics tonight of my progress. Smiley

massiekur- Welcome. And we won't spoil HP for you, but my suggestion is to not go snooping until you finish the series Wink

With Christmas knitting, I've had to put my Slytherin trapped bar down. As soon as I finish this last late gift (which shouldn't be too long since it's a simple 2x2 rib scarf), I'll pick my baby back up. I think I left off of the third trap bar?

Pics coming soon.

I've recently discovered that my local library has copies of harry potter on cd available for checking out.  and I find that listening to it while I knit is good, since I don't have to stare at the screen.  I'm not much of a multi-tasker.  There is a long waiting list for DH... but I have been able to get PoA, CoS & HBP... i just need to search for SS, GoF & wait for my turn on DH, then I'd have the whole set! It's a lot easier to carry around a small nano, as opposed to the whole 7 book set!

oh, also I saw the coolest sign at my library, it involved knitting and audio book.  it went something like, can't read while you knit, listen to audiobooks... i'll take a picture and share next time i go to the library... who knew libraries were so cool!

Haha. I am trying to stay away from anything HP on the internet..*shifty eyes*

I have done one trapped bar sequence. 12 to go! lol. this thing is like, 12 inches wide! I casted on 110 stitches. I usually wear skinny scarves, but I like this one the width that it is. (It's wider than my size 10 shoes are long! By like, 4 inches!)

I made my sister a ravenclaw POA scarf for xmas.  it took me about 2 months.  i'm telling you, this thing took over my life while i was working on it!  I used wool-ease worsted weight yarn in denim and heather gray, knit on circulars.  the ends were 'sewn' together with the fringe.





by the way, this is my first ever completed knitting project!
