WIP Wednesday - Go Go Gryffindor!

Hello again!  I am happy to report that my project at work is finally rolled out.  This means that things should calm down a bit and I won't be working 10-12 hour days all the time.  Yippy!

Surprisingly, I have gotten a ton of knitting and crocheting done so far this month even though work has been crazy.  I really attribute this to Nerd Wars challenges.  Really any inspiration to get stuff done will get me motivated.

I have mentioned it before but I am working on a set of Harry Potter inspired winter accessories, including a scarf, hat and wristlets in Gryffindor colors.  The set is for an avid fan who is going off to college this fall.  I initially thought to make it in her college colors but she wanted burgundy and gold.

As the start of the fall term gets closer, I have a deadline to get these items completed.  The good news, is that the hat is done and progress was made on everything else this week.  (I will do a finished object post when it's all done)

Gryffindor Scarf

I like working on this but it's a bit daunting.  I tend to procrastinate with other projects, at least this time it's apart of the set.  I did get to work on it quite a bit these past 2 weeks and I really need to get a move on to get it done.  It may be that I have to get one section done a day for a bit.

I really like how this is turning out
Gryffindor Wristlets

I am so surprised how easy I found this pattern.  I had some modifications to make it a wristlet versus a mitten.  This is so comfy and I will probably find it hard not to want to complete the left hand this week.

Right Wristlet!
So there you have it my WIPs for this week. I think I had a pretty productive week, how about you? For other WIPs check out Tami's Amis and Frontier Dreams

  1. both the scarf and the wrislets are beautiful. Don't know much about Harry Potter but the person who receives these will be blessed.

  2. Oh, these are excellent. The stripe style on that mitt is so cool, and I love the ribbing, too.

    1. Thanks it's based on the scarves from the 3rd and 4th harry potter movie.

  3. Those are so cute and I'm sure that the recipient will get lots of great questions about them too!
