I am back from a long, LONG hiatus! I first posted the beginnings of my scarf way back in December 2011. Then I got really busy with my writing, and then it was summer and I had trouble motivating myself to knit a scarf I couldn't use for months. Then in the fall I learned how to drive for the first time even though I just turned 31 (birthday was yesterday!). I'm a city girl and I had never learned before.
But I finally finished last night, and here it is! Harry Potter Ravenclaw scarf, book colors, older style from the first two movies. I accidentally added two extra pieces of fringe than what the pattern called for because I looked at the photo wrong, but it ended up being a good thing because of the other end of the scarf, which is the first thing I knit ever, is a bit wider and needed the extra fringe to avoid looking empty.
Next up will be attempting to knit a hat to go with it.
