WINNERS! After a very long time... and an apology

I'm back (finally) from vacation and so can (finally) announce the winners from the Second F.O. Contest!

A big congratulations to Lindsay, who did brilliantly with her Dark Mark scarf, which she not only knitted, but wrote the pattern for. Talk about impressive! By far and away our winner, Lindsay should get in touch with me ( for her lovely prizes.

And while Lindsay swept the contest, we couldn't ignore runner-up Just a Knit Wit, who's exciting and hilarious Woolly Voldemort series kept us tuning in weekly. If you didn't read them check here for Parts One, Two, Three, and Four. JaKW, you're going to get a little something too!

Thanks to everyone for participating in Part Two of our Harry Finished Projects Contest! All the entries were fantastic.

Also, a quick apology to all Snape apologists. I should have listened. I should have trusted. I should have believed Dumbledore. "The Prince's Tale" in this final book was close to undoing me. The final chapter with Albus Severus certainly did. Much appreciation to all the Snape fans who never did believe the *hype*. You folks stood up against a world of disbelievers, of which I was certainly one, and you should be proud.

So, does this mean that the KAL is packing up shop and quitting? Or are we going to continue (please, please, please)?

I really don't want it all to stop!

We don't need a contest in order to knit along.

Oh, no, the KAL goes on. To paraphrase a great man, as long as someone at the Harry Potter KAL wants to post and comment and discuss then the blog will still be- er- well, you know what I mean ;-).

Glad to see so much enthusiasm!

By the way, I knitted my granddaughter a Slytherin scarf and hat for her birthday.

She commented that I got it right. She's a Slytherin. Then she added that her mom is a griffendor, and I'm a Ravenclaw, and didn't even have to think about that.

Oh, she and her mom went to Hot Topic (a trendy chain store), and she got a Slytherin pendant, her mom got a wand pendant, and a great T-shirt that has a big "DA" and "Dumbledore's Army" on it.

Check it out if you have a Hot Topic near you.

thanks for keeping this up- I loaned out my book but will be re-reading it and looking to comment.

I am still working on my Kal project, the Molly Weasley

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who participated. The KAL was enjoyable and I think everyone's project was a winner!
