I told you yesterday that I’ve been very busy. The truth is I’ve crocheted so much that my hands have cramped. And I’ve got so much more to do! But it’s all been worth it. And I’ve had a few commissions to do this year that have also occupied my time. My favorite was a set of four scarves inspired by the four Harry Potter houses. The scarves used during the Harry Potter movies have changed over time, and differ slightly in hue from the versions mentioned in the books, but they all have 3 things in common. 1.) they are super long! I mean super! They are meant to go almost to the waist, if not so. 2.) they are thicker than normal American scarves. I think this is a British thing. When we lived in Scotland I noticed that all of our scarves were quite wide, which was actually nice for this Florida girl to hide behind during the biting wind. And 3.) they are one solid color with alternate colored stripes related to the house colors. I crocheted them using a hdc stitch in the pattern: 14 main colored rows, 3 alternate colors, 3 main color, 3 alternate color- repeat until desired length, in my case 9 additional times.
So the only question left- which house will the sorting hat put you in? To find out visit http://www.pottermore.com. Me? Why, I’m Hufflepuff of course!
