FO: Hogwarts Hip Scarf

The answer to the question What Was the Bag of Ends for is upon us!

The bag of ends was for the Hogwarts Hip Scarf from Charmed Knits: Projects for Fans of Harry Potter! I finished knitting it the day after I got to my dad's but weaving in the ends was something else entirely! It took me a good three days. I spray blocked it Monday, but the wool kept twisting in a spiral when I wore it today. I'm either going to block it majorly with warm water or just let it be. Probably going to let it be.

The pattern is fantastic and easy, I'll probably make a couple more to wear as head scarves in different colors. I used Cascade 200 left over from my Gryffindor Scarf (Movies 1&2 style) that I made in my senior year and not the recommended Superwash. It didn't even take a full ball of the red, much less the yellow.

By all rights, I should have two FOs for you today, but my one skein of Debbie Bliss Cashmerion Aran wasn't enough for the cabled fingerless mitts I'm fashioning, so that'll have to wait until I can get some more. That is the FOUR ROWS AND A THUMB will have to wait. FOUR ROWS!!!

I'm going to cast on another Lizard Ridge square, maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow. Tomorrow morning i'm going to get up and swim, and I need to work on my novel and want to spend some time reading, but Lizard Ridge calls.

I think I hinted at my dad none-too-subtly enough that he may get me a Bookmate which would be awesome!

A few sign-ups received for the Official Knitter's Book Swap I assume some peopel are waiting until they know what they're sending. I knew as soon as I thought up the idea :D

Very hip indeed! I think Hermione should be sporting one of these once she graduates :) (That's if she survives book 7, of course, which I hope she will!)

I usually do not write a great deal of remarks, but i did some searching and wound up
here "FO: Hogwarts Hip Scarf". And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you don't mind. Could it be just me or does it seem like some of the remarks come across like written by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting at additional online sites, I'd like to follow anything new you have to post.
Could you list of every one of your communal pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or
linkedin profile?
