i have started the Animal Cracker Hat, making it out of Lopi and re-writing the pattern to make it an easier knit (i hope)
and here are the crocheted sleeves for Mrs. Weasley's sweater that she's wearing in the COS movie. i'm making it out of Paternayan and i'm loving it, except the way the pattern is written is kind of weird. i'm going to conact the designer when i'm done, as i've been making notes along the way. i'm at a standstill for a week or so, as i ran out of green. i'm going to make the body of the sweater out of Nature Wool, in a variagated pink. in the pictures i have, it's hard to tell what the body of the sweater looks like, since Mrs. Weasley is also wearing an apron. so, i'm improvising it but it should be wonderful!
here's a picture from the movie, in case it doesn't sound familiar.
i love the discussions about the books - i keep listening to them on cd while i work on these projects. it helps keep me motivated and makes me feel more involved. i feel like such a geek sometimes, but at least i am in good company!!!!
