I'm nearly done with the Ravenclaw tie. I only have a couple of inches left to knit. So I think that I will get it done, washed, and blocked before the end of March. Now I'm starting to think a bit of what I can do for the second half of the KAL.
In my reading, I've just finished PoA. I watched the movie before rereading the book and I was noticing, in my reading, how much was changed between book and movie. I've also been exploring the Harry Potter Lexicon and am finding it an interesting site to visit. There are lists of differences between the movies and books and I've looked there after compiling my own lists to check if I've caught most of the changes.
As a cat lover, I enjoyed reading about Crookshanks and the rather important role he played. I think I may have to knit myself a Crookshanks cat. My sister knit a cat that I think makes a perfect Crookshanks.
She made up the knit pattern but I'm not sure if she's written it down or not. Even if I had the pattern, it seems like it may be a bit complicated and I'm not sure I would be up to it. I may instead do this pattern with some really fuzzy yarn.
I'm taking a small break from reading Harry Potter to read the latest Richard Jury mystery by Martha Grimes.
Happy Knitting. Happy Reading. Happy Listening. Happy Watching.
