i like that bag, its a nice design.

I am now on stripe 16 on my gryffindor scarf so nearly there now. I'm hoping the acrylic softens up when I wash it because its not the nicest yarn to wear around your neck.

Currently flicking through Silver's sock tutorial, seriously considering learning to knit socks, then I can do some of the nice HP sock patterns they have around the net. Any tips?

I like that bag too.

Wow rachejm! You are way ahead of me. I am way back on stripe seven! Just been too busy [or perhaps I am a really slow knitter], but I have to be done by the 26th!

I have a question. The end where I started keeps wanting to roll up. Will blocking (which I have to find out how to do) take care of that.... or maybe just putting the fringe on?

Thanks!

Ooo, I like that Hermione Bag pattern too. It's really nice.
Silver's Sock tutorial is really good. I didn't actually knit a sock from her tutorial, but I read through the whole thing, and realized that I could knit a sock if I wanted to. It's the whole "turning the heel" thing that has most people nervous. I guess my advice is just give it a try! You can do it. And we're all here to help if you need it! The first sock pattern I actually knit was the universal toe up sock formula from knitty.com. I love that sock formula!

i've been working on my scarf for a few months now so its actually fairly slow progress but I'm getting there. Thanks for the sock tips, I may have a go but it will have to wait until I can go get some more supplies.

Hi! I'm new to KH and I stumbled upon this KAL. I am currently working on Hedwig from the Charmed Knits book. I am only partly through the body and I already love how he is going to look.

Help!
I am frantically knitting this Gryffinor scarf for my son. It has to be done by Friday. It is the house scarf pattern from Charmed Knits. My question is about the first row curling. Will that come out with blocking? Or when I close up the tube with the fringe, will that take care of the problem.

I am on stripe 10 of 19, knitting my little heart out, but there's that nagging question in the back of my mind that I am wasting my time and it isn't going to turn out right

Adding the fringe will take care of the problem so
don't worry!

Ooo, can you show us a picture when you are done?
That's a really cute pattern!
And, welcome to KH!
