First off... HI! First post yay
Also this is only my second ever project. My first was another scarf which I completed around December time. That was just garter stitch I recall.
This was started around middle of February. When I started knitting I knew I wanted to knit a Gryffindor scarf so it was only a matter of finding a good pattern. I used the one up at Atypically
. It's my first use of circulars and of changing colours. It's with Plymouth Encore Worsted, Cranberry 175 and Butternut 1014 on 16" US8 circulars. This is about half way through, 9 or so stripes. I've done another two stripes since then. It curled at the ends as you can see, but when I close it and add fringing that'll fix it.
My brother already has an order in for one in Ravenclaw (film). Now I just have to find the right yarn for him (130&157). It's hard to find them, being from the U.K. The yarn for this scarf was ordered from Patternworks.com and including shipping cost around £20. It'm having a hard time tracking down the 130 silver. It's called oyster by some, or English Silver by others. Anyone know where I can get it cheap, that will ship to the U.K?
