1  Re: HP Mandrake Hat and House Scarf (img heavy) in Knitting: Completed Projects by ginabeana on: August 01, 2007 12:00:21 PM
Thanks everyone!  I really appreciate the nice comments.   Grin

kelseybelle: Harry will be elated to know that he looks like Jim from the Office!   Wink

audio-astrophysics: Isn't it cool how life works like that?  I live about 45 minutes away from Wilmington and drive through there on the way to Columbus!  I love it!  I hope you enjoyed the party, and of course, the book!

Here are two more pictures, one that actually shows the hat, and one with more Rylie cuteness.  Oh, and she's not mine.  I'm kind of like a surrogate aunt.  Basically I'm the girl who knits stuff for her!

2  Harry Potter Mandrake Hat and House Scarf (warning: cute baby inside!) in Knitting: Completed Projects by ginabeana on: July 31, 2007 02:57:31 PM
To celebrate the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows release, I went with a bunch of my friends to a giant book party in Wilmington, Ohio!  Everyone dressed up, so naturally I thought I should do some HP knitting.

First: a Mandrake Hat!  Rylie had the pleasure of wearing it, and she looked great!  The hat was made out of Cotton Classic, and I used felt for the leaves.  The red thing on the top is kind of hard to see, but it's a ladybug.  I gave it 7 spots for good luck.   Wink

Here is a picture of me and Rylie, and you can see more of the roots, which I surface crocheted after finishing the hat:

Then I made the proverbial Gryffindor house scarf for my Harry look-a-like friend.  I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.  

And yes, that is Voldemort.  He was in our group.  ACTION SHOT!

Thanks for looking!   Cheesy

3  Hogwarts Rock Stars in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by ginabeana on: August 20, 2006 02:24:40 PM
While I'm not that much of a rocker, I loved the idea of knitting dolls.  So, I used the Knit Your Own Rock Star pattern and made a Luna Lovegood (from the Harry Potter books) doll.  She turned out so cool that I decided to make a Harry Potter one (he turned out not as good... for some reason his head perpetually stares to the right!!).  I haven't made anymore because Harry was such a bear to knit, but here they are!   Grin   Questions/comments are always appreciated.

4  Bunny slippers (and a variation!) in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by ginabeana on: August 07, 2006 07:54:49 PM
Hi, my name is Gina and I am a long-time lurker, first time poster.  If I made any mistakes in my first post, please tell me so I can fix it straight away!  I have been knitting since 2003 and just recently took up crochet this May after seeing all of the funky patterns in the Happy Hooker.  This bunny slipper pattern was just too cute to pass up, so I decided to try my hand at some tan-colored bunnies.  I double stranded Cascade 220 (the color was Sunflower) with Rowan Kidsilk Haze.  I don't remember that yarn's color, but it was almost an exact match!  Here are my results!


And to get the full effect, here is me in the morning with them on!  (My mom made the pom-poms for the bunny tails!)  I added more to the heel of the slipper because I didn't like how they were flopping off of my feet all the time.  Other than that, I'm very happy with them.  I also painted carrots on the soles of my slippers with fabric paint to prevent me from slipping and breaking my neck!

And now for the variation!  My little sister just turned 17 and wanted me to make her some slippers.  We found this ridiculously yellow mohair at my local yarn shop and had the sudden inspiration to make Pikachu slippers.  I used Cascade 220 (the color was Goldenrod) and Katia Ingenua mohair this time, and got bulkier slippers.  I'm very pleased with the results!  (My sister is too, she calls them her Pikashoes.)

That's all for me!  I love this website and enjoy seeing everyone's creative projects!  Questions/comments/feedback wiil definitely be appreciated!   Grin
