View Full Version : Harry Potter knitting

So, I was just talking on the phone to my friend about the HP movie premiere in July. And I was telling him that I'm making a Slytherin scarf for it. And, then I decided that he needed a Hufflepuff scarf as well. The bad thing is that I have to wait till I get home from college to work on them because I'm sooo busy now.
Is anyone else going to be making HP stuff for the movie or the book release?

I was thinking of making myself a Hufflepuff scarf (that's the house I would most likely be in). Or maybe I will attempt to create a knitting pattern for a witch's or wizard's hat...

Seeing as how it'll be July when HP7 is released, I don't know if I can do a scarf. But for the release of the last book, I may need to hunt down some bronze and blue yarn! Go Ravenclaw!

The pattern for House Hats (http://media.wiley.com/product_ancillary/14/04700673/DOWNLOAD/0470067314.pdf) from Charmed Knits is available now. I think Charmed Knits is supposed to be out next month.

I'm making something special for my friends, but I can't talk about it on here. ;)

I would love to make something, but with it being July, I can't think of anything that might work :shrug: It gets around 105-110+ here.

Even though it will be warm, I'm planning to make the Ravenclaw Illusion Scarf: http://www.the-leaky-cauldron.org/#static:crafts/knitting/ravenclawillusionscarf
It's so cool! Just wait a sec for it to pop up on the screen.

I love Harry Potter! I've knit all four house scarves. I would love to wear one to the premiere in July, but I live in south Florida and it will probably be near 100 degrees that day, so I knit a hat instead. :teehee:

Hehehe. Yeah, I was sort of worried about the heat. But, we'll be going to both the book release and the movie at midnight, so, it should be chilly. :)

I've also knit all the scarves, but I certainly won't be wearing one this summer. It's warm enough in the dead of winter, I think I'd pass out if I wore it in July. Then again, all the parties I'm attending are midnight premiere/release parties, but still. I have the rest of the Slytherin uniform, but I guess I'm just going to have to be knitless - maybe if the film came out in November as I believe it should it'd be a different story.

My mom showed me these horcrux socks (http://www.knittingasfastasican.com/FreePatterns/Horcrux%20Socks.pdf) the other day. So, if a scarf is too warm for you, here ya go! You'll need Adobe to open it.
I personally don't believe that Harry's scar is a horcrux, but the pattern looks kind of fun.

OHh I'm going to try the socks! I love Harry Potter and can't wait for the movie and book!!!
