So just for the fun of it, I decided to make myself a Gryffindor scarf. I finished the knitting last weekend, and then wove in all the ends during the week – and believe me, there were lots of ends to weave in, two for each colour change. The finished scarf is about six feet long, worked in Unger Utopia, two skeins of each colour.

I took it in to work to show off the day after I finished it, and one of my co-workers, Ethel, liked it so well, that she asked me if I’d make her one. She knows nothing about HP, she just liked the stripes, the yarn and the weight and warmth of the finished scarf. Hers is going to be turquoise and white; I’ve already ordered the yarn for it.

So without further ado, a couple of pics of the scarf:
