Thanks to everyone's encouragement when I posted my first FO, I bring you the things I have finished since. And I'm rather impressed with myself for churning out another one of these scarves.

Gryffindor PoA Scarf

Yarn: TLC Essentials in Claret and Patons Classic Merino in Old Gold
Pattern: Lauren's (http://knit.atypically.net/scarves/azkaban/pattern.shtml).
Needles: 16" circular US7
Notes: I did the full 14 trapped bars and lengthened the MC blocks to 30 rounds rather than 27. It's super long and I love it. It's for someone taller than me, though, so maybe they won't trip on it while walking upstairs (like I do). :)

Slytherin Fingerless Quidditch Mitts

Yarn: Patons Classic Merino in Bottle Green and Grey Mix
Pattern: This one (http://xephyr-42.livejournal.com/17597.html#cutid1) from xephyr-42.
Needles: US6 DPNs
Notes: I lengthened them by adding a repeat and changed the thumbholes a little by just knitting back and forth.

Fingerless Gloves

Yarn: Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Baby in #008
Pattern: This one. (http://students.washington.edu/cwei/knit/fingerless.shtml)
Needles: US5 DPNs
Notes: I failed horribly at the thumb gusset on the first glove, so I abandoned the pattern for the second and used waste yarn to create a hole which worked perfectly. I also changed the way I increased so it was pretty much invisible. I absolutely love how these feel!

Can anyone make out whose avatar that is on the screen? They have now been immortalized!

And wow, that is a lot of knittin' on that scarf!
