finished: Luna scarf

In less than 24 hours, this scarf was finished.  Again, here’s the pattern.  I used an E hook instead of a G because all I had was some leftover yarn, and it was thinner than what was called for.  It matches my knitted Hermione hat though, so that’s awesome.  My changes did result in it being a tad short, but it’s still totally cute and wearable.

So that’s it!  An easy one-day project that turned out very pretty (and just like the scarf from the movie).

Thanks for stopping by!  Sorry for barraging you with multiple posts all of a sudden — I just like to post them as soon as the project is done. 🙂

new project: Luna scarf

I started another Harry Potter related project today, and I’m already halfway through!  The scarf Luna Lovegood wears in one of the movies has been turned into an easy crochet pattern (click here).  The scarf is different in that it’s worked from the center to the outside edge, and then the yarn is reattached and worked from the center to the other outside edge.  I’ve got the center to one edge now:

As you can see, it’s very lacy, so it’ll be ideal for fall.  Maybe I can finish it tonight, but my hands are starting to ache so I’d better take a break.  I have to go to class soon anyway…  But I hope I have enough yarn.  I’m using leftovers from my two knitted Hermione hats so I’m not exactly sure if it’ll make it.  Don’t want to have to go get another skein just to finish the last row.  I’m using a slightly thinner yarn than called for and a slightly smaller hook, but it’s still amply long and will be plenty wide when I’m done.

That’s all for right now.  Thanks for stopping by!

finally, something’s done!

I finally finished my Hermione Hat #2!  You probably don’t remember #1 because it was so long ago, probably before I separated my blogs.  #1 was too short by about 10 rows, because I read the chart wrong throughout and just skipped them.  This one was done properly (although it’s still a little short/snug for my taste, but I’m sure I can block it).

#1 is on the left, #2 on the right. You can tell #2 looks much bigger.

The eyelets were fun, but I’m not sure I like making cables… my stitches get so tight.

I’m so excited to have this done!  I did all of the decreasing top part tonight because I wanted to get it finished.  This will definitely be going on my Christmas trip to England with me.  It might not even get cold enough here in South Carolina this winter for me to wear hats (it didn’t this past winter), so I’m excited for the opportunity to show off my hard work!  I know it’s not the most complicated hat pattern, but for a beginner I’m really proud of how it turned out!

Oh and if you want the pattern for this hat, it’s here.

Thanks for stopping by, that’s all for today!
