Knitting is fun. My favorite things to knit are mittens and scarves.

- Gryffindor fingerless (quidditch) gloves - red with a gold lion
Ravenclaw gloves - grey smiply soft on size 8 needles with a navy eagle
the back of the hand. I'll post a pattern after I figure out the first glove.
I have been watching Doctor Who lately. The new series is being shown on
Friday nights on the SciFi channel in the US. In an episode called Boom Town
near the end of the first season, Rose is wearing the coolest looking scarf.
I'd really like to make one just like it. Check out my research page
I am working on my very first sweater. I found this free
pattern at jo-ann's. I chose 'lavendar sachet' homespun yarn.
It's quite soft when knit up, but a bit tricky at first with the chunky
strands. You sort of have to know what you are doing because it's hard to
tell how many rows you've done and to distinguish knit from pearl in
Update I finished knitting the back peice over the weekend. The front peice is
taking a bit longer because I'm not as excited about it.
Update I've now completed the front and back, attached them together and I'm
nearly complete with the first sleve.
Update The first sleve is done, I think... I don't know how long to
make it exactly. So I started the second sleve without casting off the first
one so I can make them the same length.
Purple hat and mittens. I cast on 60 stitches onto US size 8 needles, and
I think the hat is comming out much too small. This first one may be a
christmas present for a little cousin.
I finished the small one and a larger one using this free pattern:
Gotcha Covered #1
I made a snowflake chart
and used that design in the 'Crown' section.
Next, I am going to make double knit mittens with the same snowflake on the
back. Then, I'm going to knit a matching scarf with a snowflake stripe
across the edge of each side and fringe.
- I want to make dobby's house elf socks from the book Harry Potter and the
Goblet of Fire. I've never knit socks before. I want to use two circular
needles, and knit both socks at once. I plan to cast on using this method
and knit the sock with this pattern. One sock
will be red and the other green. I need to buy the sock yarn and the needles.
After the socks are knit, I'm going to go back and duplicate stitch the
broomsticks and snitches on.
A very cute snitch pouch
Another secret project. I'm making mini weasley sweater
christmas tree orniments for my friends for christmas!
