Anyway, I am dreadfully behind on Christmas. Shopping is far from done, some baking is done, some decorating is done. But all in all I have a busy couple of days ahead of me until Christmas and then it's off to Anaheim.
Well enough blather for one Friday, let's get down to yarn.
If you will remember, I made the Gryffindor Set for my Boss' daughter as a going away present for college. Granted she was home on break when she got it but it was still warm out. As a result, of my efforts I began to feel bad about not making anything for my Boss' son so when she approached him about it, he was super excited to get a Ravenclaw Beanie.
I love making hats because they are instant gratification when it comes to projects. Round and round and some decreases and voila your done. I am really pleased with this hat because it looks nice and masculine but is totally Harry Potter through and through.
|Look ma!, a Ravenclaw!|
I already passes this along to my boss and he will get it on Christmas. I hope he likes it!
There is a huge part of me that wants to whip up a Hufflepuff hat for myself. I have enough Black and Gold. Keep your eyes peeled for another hat from this pattern.
