WOOWOO I am finally done! I have to do the fringe on one side and get the dog hair off, LOL, but I am done! I now have a pound-and-a-half, 8 -feet-long scarf WHEW! lol!! It might only be 7.5 feet, but it is HUGE nonetheless. Perfect for this September heat <laughs>

I am so glad to be finished, I am practically giddy!! Smiley

I was going to do a Ravenclaw for myself, but my little brother loves Hufflepuff so much I think I'll make one of their scarves for him.

Got home but I am still toiling away on the clapotis, which goes on forever!  And started a baby hat for a preganant friend who I haven't talked to 9 months but apparently still expects knit baby goodies.  Ugh!!!  But I will have it done byt the movie! 

So keep those pics coming there are inspiring.

Grr. I quit. Ic annot do this. I think there is something wrong with my circular needle. I re did the cast ons like a million times and it still looks like CRAP!

Aww Hannah!  Don't give up!!  LOL... Actually, I found out that I hated my circular needles for this project, as well.  For some reason, the stripes didn't line up exactly perfect... and it was bugging me.... So after 1 stripe, I took kaesea's brilliant idea and made a touque... Then I recast with new yarn on normal needles!!  It has the same number of cast on stitches - and it's super wide on the needles, but when it's done (3 more stripes!!), I'll be much happier to stitch it all together so that it passes my "perfection standards" ... It's WAY easier! (At least for me, anyways!! hehe!)

But don't give up!!  At least not yet!!  The new Harry Potter movie doesn't start until November!!  So try a few rows a night - and it will work!!  We have faith in you!  And you'll look fab walking into the movie with it on - everyone will be so jealous! hehe!  You can do it!

I hope it's not to late to join all of you Undecided

I had just bought my yarn for my Ravenclaw scarf when this was started.  However I didn't have any circular needles and so I held out for about two weeks looking everywear and still couldn't find the right size Angry  So about a week ago I gave up and decided to just knit it flat and sew up the side later.  Today I passed the halfway point (yay)!!  I will get some pics up hopefully by tomorrow.


I'm back after a long time away and trying to find time to craft as I adjust to life as a mom!

My walmart only has one size cirular needles, 29". Obviously, this is far too big! So, being the destructive little imp I am, I did surgery. I cut out several inches and then used packing tape to put the remaining cord back together. The yarn gets a little stuck, but it works.

BTW, I decided to alter the SS/COS pattern. On the first stripe I'm knitting in an H for Hufflepuff and on the last stripe I intend to knit in my brother's initials. So far I have two rows of the H and a mess of tails hanging everywhere.
