Thank you again, everyone! I used Lion's Brand Wool-Ease worsted weight in 114 Denim and 171 Gold. For some reason the gold always felt thinner than the blue, which was weird.

Antares, I avoided the Harry Potter craze like the plague for YEARS but got sucked in over the summer of 2011 when I read all the books.

And Jan, ahhhh, I know! I just got into Doctor Who a few months ago! My boyfriend and I started with the 9th Doctor and are now caught up with the new episodes, plus we've watched the 1996 movie and are watching Classic Who on Netflix and buying the classic dvds whenever we spot a decent buy. I would LOVE a Tom Baker scarf too, but I don't think I'm quite at that level yet. I also saw a pattern for this huge TARDIS afghan that is insanely complicated, but I will tackle it someday. Just no way it's happening anytime soon.

Brilliant, well done for persevering. I tried to knit a scarf and gave up half way through, I might finish it one of these days!

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 was done. I left it before even finishing a row. So this time around when another friend tried to get me into it, I decided to make something I was excited about finishing and would actually use. And then it took over a year. But still, I got it done. Definitely need to do a few smaller projects as my next several things so I don't get that "THIS WILL NEVER BE DONE!" feeling as much.

That scarf looks great. Congrats on finishing it. Now I want to make a HP scarf. Did you use a pattern?

Colleen, that's quite amusing as I was the opposite. I knitted dishcloths first because I wanted them, I was on a mission to reduce and reuse etc and had waged a war against paper towels!! I made quite a few that we still use today, have knitted a few more to replace the ones that wore out and will always go back to them. They're the reason I learnt to knit.

A beautifully knit scarf. Congratulations on sticking with it and seeing it through to completion. Knit in the round it will definitely be warm.

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
