My housemate Sarah is a Harry Potter fanatic. She's from California but studies here and I secretly think it's because she wanted to be closer to the wizarding world. It was her birthday in January and I had mused over getting her various HP themed items like this or this but I really wanted to do something homemade. She had a burgundy/yellow Gryffindor hat that she wore all the time until she lost it so I decided (before she lost it) to knit her a matching scarf. Unfortunately it took a lot longer than expected so wasn't ready for her birthday but I showed it to her and took a long time to finish it.. finally it is done!
I am not a very experienced knitter, this is only my second post about knitting and I have only really successfully knitted hats and scarfs but I do like it. I need to do more.. trouble is I don't have a whole lot of time and I feel like knitting is really good if you're sat in front of the TV or on a bus - I do not have a TV and I ride my bike.. so I struggle for time. But I will try better from now!
She's happy with it and so is Hedwig the travelling owl.
