boys who knit are hot... and as a harry potter enthusiast, i would just like to say that you did an outstanding job on that Cheesy

was it difficult? how long did it take you to finish that? I've never attempted such a feat but... oh if I could there would be many a Weasley sweater to go around.

this project makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside  Wink

happy knitting!

Kick ass! I want to make something for Ravenclaw for the coming of Half Blood Prince. Only problem is, it's too damn hot to wear a scarf so I must think of something else.

If you could knit me one, I'd wear it next winter though Smiley Yay for your mad knitting skills, I suck right now so mad props.

Wow, you did an amazing job on that!  I'm still new to knitting, but I'm doing a Gryffindor scarf for my roommate and a Slytherin one for my husband for the book release. 

As a Potterhead and a fanatical newbie knitter, I tip my hat to you!

If all else fails, hide.  It works for bunnies.

Thanks, everyone!
I was thinking myself it would look good on a library bag or something similar, but i am nowhere near capable of even trying something like a sweater!
All in all, it took about two/three days of knitting, sweating, pulling out of stitches, swearing, and counting until it was complete.  I am thinking of attatching wooden rods at the top and bottom so it can hang like a banner or 'tapestry'.  And am now starting on some to get to fellow Harry fiends in time for the new book... if not they will hopefully get by the time the goblet movie is released!
(And might i say, thank you all for being so welcoming.  Some people i have already come across were agitated by the thought of a male knitter - but after lurking here for quite some time i knew you would be friendly!)

wow. that is COOL.
i got seconded to knit a scarf as a spot prize at the bookstore where i work. I'm just doing a ribbed red and gold striped scarf. Because it's quick and easy and i'm resrntful that my work is taking me away from projects i want to do.
