Hiya everyone, my name is Parisa and I am a Gryffindor. I was recently promoted to Prefect by Dumbledore and promise not to go nuts with the point deductions ;) I do have some Hermione tendencies though, was so happy when I found someone in a book who was somewhat like me. I don't study quite as much as she does though! I am very excited for the series to come to its great finale and, probably am the only person who thinks this, but I think that this should be the end and be perserved in all its greatness, rather than carrying on past its peak. I also think that it's really clever that it is the seven years of secondary school that the books chronicle and I really connect with that since I studied in the British education system (I am from Northern Ireland and was actually a prefect and head girl of my year...I know, super nerdy)
My favourite book is Prisoner of Azkaban, I love Sirius, Lupin and learning more about Harry's parents.I think my favourite film is Goblet of Fire, though I LOVE Prisoner of Azkaban, as it is the first film that really reflects the darkness that is in the books properly. I don't think the first 2 films did the books justice at all. I am currently finishing Ordering if the Phoniex and am hoping to finish Half-Blood Prince while everyone else is re-reading the series (senior at college, limited reading time).
I have already started my first project, a pair of gloves. They are made with superwash, sock yarn in a colourway called 'Yule' and the first hand was made while watching 'The Goblet of Fire' on DVD. They're called 'Yule Ball' gloves, especially for the Yule Ball in Book 4, to keep ones hands warm on the way to the Great Hall. Snuggly warm, without being bulky...functional chic!
Interesting fact: The first book in the series is called Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone at home, the British edition name. Wonder why they changed it for America?
