Yarn Along: Illustrated "Harry Potter" and Gryffindor Scarf

Yarn Along is a wonderful link-up -- hosted by the Small Things blog every Wednesday -- about two of the best things in life: reading and knitting!

Reading: I couldn't resist buying the new "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" with beautiful full-color illustrations last week. I'm flipping through it bit by bit and slowly taking in all the stunning artwork. Soon I'll actually sit down and read the entire thing. The pictures are magical and original. If you like HP, this is a must-buy!

I'm also reading a Halloween-themed mystery, "Lord of the Wings" by Donna Andrews. It's the latest in her Meg Lansglow cozy mystery series. Perfect for October.

Knitting: It suddenly occurred to me the other day that Halloween is less than three weeks away! I'm planning to wear my Hermione Granger costume to work at the library on Halloween, and of course I want to top off my outfit with my hand-knit Gryffindor scarf! I started it last winter and have been working on it here and there between other projects. I definitely want it for my costume this year, though, so I've got to get it finished up ASAP!

  1. I never really got into Harry Potter, but I am anxious for my son to get a bit older so we can read and watch them all together. I am sure he will devour them!

    1. I was just thinking this illustrated version would be amazing for a child reading HP for the first time!

  2. Yay for Harry Potter! I started a Gryffindor scarf many years ago and ran out of yarn so it never got finished, maybe it's time I started another...

    1. You should! The pattern I'm making is super-easy -- good for TV knitting. And it's a tube, so it'll be doubly warm!
