WIP: HP Gryffindor Scarf & a scarf for a photo shoot!
I can't believe this is my first HP scarf ... I'm a huge HP fan! I'm knitting this for my DS. It's also my first time knitting in the round - I'm using 16" US8 circ needles, and Lion Wool-ease in Cranberry and Gold.

I also completed scarf for a local photo shoot ... I used 7 skeins of Lion Boucle in Hard Candies and 3 skeins of Patons Brilliant in Gold for the scarf - the photographer requested it to be 12' long! It was crazy knitting it in time for the photo shoot, but it came out so pretty.

Have a great week!

Go, Gryffindor! Great Scarf.

How cool is that to knit a scarf for a photo shoot! It looks fantastic, I love the length(wouldn't want to knit it).

Thanks Freyja! He called me on a Monday afternoon, wanting it for Saturday morning. I was up 'til midnight for 4 nights getting it done (I work fulltime outside the home). But it was so exciting to watch the photo shoot. I kept thinking "that's my scarf!!"

my Brothers best friend's Girlfriend has been a model a few times for knit Sweaters
even on the cover of one magazine
slightly asian looking woman with glasses, nice Honest open Smile
and I recently made a 15' (yes foot) scarf out of Lambs Pride
when I mailed it, it was just shy of 3#
it was 700 stitches long, and 6 skeins
my friend wears it doubled when alone, and shares loops of it with his kids when they are together

I loved making it for them
