Hi, my name is Ann and I am ... a Harry Potter Knitter. I'm totally addicted to the books and to the projects I have made with the books in mind. In the past I have made myself a scarf (Ravenclaw book colors), a Weasley sweater for my little boy (fits for the 3rd winter in a row!), a tie in Gryffindor colors for a friend, and many Weasley Sweater ornaments for fellow Potter fans.
I'm batting different ideas around as to what to make for the movie opening and the book release. Too many choices!
My favorite book is probably Azkaban - I just love Sirius, though Order of the Pheonix follows close behind. (It's almost like asking me which Beatle is my favorite - how can I choose?!) My favorite movie so far has been Azkaban also. Gary Oldman as Sirius is perfect. I also love Lupin. He's great in the books and the actor does a good job with him on the screen.
I have high expectations for book 7. But mainly, I just don't want any Weasley's to come to a bad end. (Except Percy, of course.) I'm a big Weasley fan. There are so few positive portrayals of redheads in the media and the Weasleys do a great job of being a good family. As a redhead married to a redhead with 2 redheaded kids, I'm just a bit partial to them.
I look forward to refreshing myself up on the series and discussing it with fellow HP fans!
Sirius is innocent!
