I can't wait!

Tonight is the night! I am so excited to see the new Harry Potter movie, I stayed up last night weaving in ends on my Harry Potter Scarf just so it would be all ready to go. See?

I used Lion Brand Wool Ease in Red and Gold (Buttercup?) double stranded on size US 13's. I did a garter stitch border on the edges to help with rolling (it's not helping, can you tell?) and although it calls for alternate fringe, I was somehow almost out of red, so did just yellow. I haven't counted the stipes yet, so don't know how many there are, but it's actually quite long. When I blocked it, I had to do one end at a time and the begining wouldn't flatten out as well as the end did, even though I tried twice. Oh, well, it still looks ok, and since it's a scarf I will probably only wear twice a year, I'm happy with it.

I finished my sister-in-law's hat and will take a picture of it tonight when I give it to her. We're all going together to the movie, it's going to be so much fun!

Here's some progress shots on my Phildar Tendances sweater:

I also finished this for a friend this week too, so it's been a busy one!

Do you think it's time for some Christmas knitting??
