Gryffindor Scarf

One of my new year's resolutions was to post every week and I was managing well until two weeks ago. I'm now in the last two weeks at term and it's super busy so I just haven't had the time to post. Now though, this evening between spending 9-5 at uni and before my weekend away in Stoke for Women's Ultimate Frisbee Nationals (wish us luck!) I can write my next post.

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.
