Now that the holidays are over I can finally post about the gifty for my sis!
From the title you should have guessed it, twas a Gryffindor Scarf.
I got the idea after seeing Denise knitting hers. I used the Prizoner of Azkaban pattern and knit it using Plymouth Encore yarn, which is 75% acrylic & 25% wool. It is very soft and the colors are quite brilliant.
I used size 7 needles, so I only cast on 60sts and did 12 repeats, instead of 14.
As an added touch, I got a wonderful Gryffindor Crest patch from Patch Palace (also recommended by Denise). I was initially thinking of intarsia knitting the crest, but I eventually came to my senses.
Below are my sister's reaction and the finished product. I am very happy with the finished project, and even happier to know my sister loves it & is the envy of her friends! XD
And, just because I can, Kitty PIC!
