Just Wild about Harry Potter

Well, I started the Harry Potter Scarf. DS wants a Weasley sweater and as soon as he has his the little girl will want hers. I'll be a pro at intarsia after those two projects...I hope. Plus, I am getting good use out of Charmed Knits. A good investment for a very reasonable price. Even if you don't know who Harry Potter is (and that would mean that you've been on another planet for several years) you can use the patterns. I love it! I think I want a Weasley sweater, too.

On of the LYS's is having a sale and I am going yarn shopping today. I got up early and my headache and I cleaned up the house. I need to vacuum and then get the kids in year to go yarn shopping. They almost like it when it's for them but it's still a chore getting them into the car and such. Maybe they'll cooperate more if we take the DVD player with us and they can watch a movie.

So, the Weasley sweater pattern is available here on Alison Hansel's site. It is in the book at a larger gauge. Personally, I like the smaller gauge. You know, passion for itty bitty stitches, plus the letter will be clearer. Mine will have a "D" for Dear Son and an "E" for Dear Daughter. I am considering using the Lumos font and being fancy but we'll see. I don't want to bite off more than I can chew right now. I have a hard enough time keeping junk off my kitchen counter and feeding the dogs. No need to wind up with a frustrating project sitting in the knitting basket.

I think I want a Weasley for me.
