Brenda, I could probably use dishcloths more now than I could back then. I still lived at home in '05 because it was my first year out of college and I couldn't afford an apartment yet.
Lizars, I used this pattern: http://www.the-leaky-cauldron.org/fe...ehogwartsscarf
. Their link to yarn recommendations is broken though, so I just went with a wool/acrylic blend. They also have patterns on that site for the scarves of the later movies. And I think this is the hat I'm going to attempt next with the leftover yarn: http://www.the-leaky-cauldron.org/fe...ng/poastylehat
