Harry Potter, of course

This sweater, tossed in the laundry basket after the midnight showing of Deathly Hallows Part 1, reminded me that there's a little unblogged knitting around here. 

Back in September, my daughter's high school had a Harry Potter day as part of one of their spirit weeks.  "Mom, could you make me a Harry Potter sweater?"

Well, no, not by Wednesday, I couldn't.  But, I could make a nice Molly Weasley-ish "H" to tack onto a store bought one.  (This one is from the GAP.)   And I did -- out of better than it needs to be Hebridian Yarn from Virtual Yarns (Corncrake, I think), leftover from a long-ago knit Grant Avenue.  It's been on and off the sweater once already - the only drawback to using such yummy yarn is that it isn't quite as washable as the sweater is.  The first time it was worn, the H was very carefully sewn on -- this last time, for the midnight showing of the movie, not.

 Here she is -- off to school, a nerdish Hogwarts student. 

And no, I didn't attend the midnight showing, but I saw the movie last night and enjoyed it very much.  Can't wait for the rest of it!
