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.

The scarf is beautiful, impressve first project! Indeed, looks very evenly knit. Make sure you post a picture when it's done. Great job!

Thanks! I'll definitely post pictures when it's done. It's going to take awhile though--the pattern calls for 10 blue and 9 bronze stripes. I'm a few rows into the fourth blue stripe. My goal is to finish it while there's still some scarf-wearing weather left in the season. It would be nice to be done by the end of January so that I have a couple months left where I could wear it.

Your scarf is coming along nicely, well done! I have two sets of Harry Potter books-the US versions and the UK versions. I love the UK versions more!

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

One thing from the movies I love is in Order of the Phoenix when Luna says "I hope there's pudding." From what I understand, in the UK "pudding" can be used way more generally than how Americans use it, the same way we'd say "dessert," so hearing the line "I hope there's pudding" as an American makes it sound that much more random and bizarre. And Order of the Phoenix was my favorite of the books and the movie just didn't measure up for me, so I had to enjoy the small things like that.
