Scotch, Frankenlambie (formerly "Lambie"—that is, until Scotch tore off his ears and ate half the stuffing in his head. I stitched him back up with dark thread and alas, it's quite obvious he's had quite the messy labotomy), and my first knitting project ever (some 3 years old)—the Sorcerer's Stone/Chamber of Secrets scarf, made with nasty Red Heart yarn.

Scotch and the Prisoner of Azkaban/Goblet of Fire scarf (plus my brother's lower half in the background). Yarn: Lion Brand Jiffy. This one is about 11/2-2 years old.
Sorry about the blurry =X

To exhibit the length of this darn thing. 7ft+ .These scarves are noticably longer on the HP kids, hanging to their thighs when tied once around their necks. I wanted to make mine in proportion, masochist that I am.

(Both Potter patterns from http://knit.atypically.net–Where else, right?)

And the WIP:

Dayflower Lace scarf, as modeled by my roommate Mollie (she has much nicer hands than I!) and my sheets.
The yarn is some sort of wool-blend from Joann's. It's a little itchy, but I liked the coloring.
I'll post pictures of the finished, blocked scarf in the Dayflower thread. It's about 60% complete.

No doggies or Frankenlambies were injured in the making of this post. In fact, Ms. Scotch was rewarded royally for her beauty (and patience) with lots of kisses. Frankenlambie, well...nothing much has mattered to him since the labotomy. Sad

Less-common FO's to come!
Included: A hat in the likeness of Kyo from Fruits Basket (http://www.gkworld.com/product/GKW08942) for my friend and coworker Lindsay.

When your cat starts to argue with you that when you need to ask yourself "When did I lose control of the situation???"

I laughed about poor Frankenlambie!! Grin I think s/he'd be very pretty, even without the ears and half the stuffing in his/her head!

Your dog is gorgeous - and so are your scarves. Very neatly done. Good job!
