Pretty!!! And really comfy-looking.

Brenda, my very very first attempt at knitting was a dishcloth, back in maybe 2005. I couldn't figure out what I was doing and I got bored/frustrated because I had no desire for a dishcloth when I...

Thanks! It was sooo many stitches. It was knit in the round and I think each row was 70 stitches. The biggest mistake is right in the middle in one of the gold (aka "closest thing to bronze I could...

These are so adorable! I want one for myself, and that's kind of pathetic because I'm two weeks away from turning 30. But they're just too cute! :)

I got the UK books with the "adult" cover art so they look all fancy. Although I do kind of miss the interior illustrations.

Olha, I came right out and said that making a dishcloth didn't hold my attention, so if you offended anyone, I bet I did too. :) I think dishcloths can be a cool project too, so I'm also sorry if I...

Hope this doesn't double-post because my first attempt seems to have disappeared.

I meant to add that I'm also thinking of making the boyfriend a Gryffindor scarf at some point too.
