The scarf is looking fantastic! What yarn are you using?

*laughs* as I'm a bargin knitter.. I'm just using some acrylic.. :) I should be using a acrylic wool blend.. but.. *shrugs* nothing special.. as I can "handle" the itchyness of acrylic.. I don't mind.. and the kids wouldn't complain as I think they would just be happy to have the scarf.. but this one is FER ME :)

I know.. I'm a mean dad :)

Yes, I'm a mandated reporter--knitting yourself a scarf is right up there on the child abuse list! :rollseyes:

I'm no yarn snob, and use plenty of acrylic. I was just wondering about the yarn because the colors look good, and I've been thinking of making one for a young relative. :D

Ahh okay... well the red is MAinStay (Walmart) Soft burgandy.. and the yellow is RedHeart 0321 Gold :)

Only reason I used MainStay on the Red is that there were No RedHeart colors at the time I bought it that looked as good as that red.. :)

That red is gorgeous! :D
I used Encore for mine and I had a hard time finding a "bronze," but I was deadset on the Encore. It's mostly acrylic. I'm thinking about trying a Hufflepuff one sometime in the future...I've yet to see many of those!

I confess. I used cheapo acryllic for my dd's Gryffindor scarf as well (first year). Now she wants a PoA Ravenclaw one. She says she is going to poke me until I make her one. She just doesn't realize that my needles can be sharp and I'll poke back!!! :roflhard:

Hey, I have that scarf on my knitting needles too! :D Right now it's on hold as I'm trying to finish up a scarf for a friend for her Christmas present. I'm using Utopia yarn and I'm probaby 3/4 of the way done. I used Utopia for the first Hogwarts scarf. Yours looks great!
