A Scarf for Summer

So we've been heavily engrossed in the entire Harry Potter world for a few months now. As such, the girls are anxious to go to Hogwarts. M can't wait till HP world opens at Disney this year. I'd include S in that but I'm not really sure she cares! She loves the HP characters and the first book totally appealed to her. But after that she kinda lost interest and built her own version of HP in her head! Ah the joys of being 4.

Anyway- I spent a few days this month whipping up a Gryffindor scarf for M. While most go for the traditional colours of a wine yarn and yellow, M opted for a wine and gold. The scarf totally came down to her ankles. She asked for LONG! and she totally got it! LOL! I told her to take comfort inthe fact that she could wrap it round a couple times and still have it long. Plus she could GROW into it. She totally loved it!

S has asked for a Ravenclaw scarf which is still on the needles. M and S picked out a lighter blue than I would of and a darker bronze. Oh well, as long as they're happy with the colours that's all I was worried about. S' will be shorter (not sure yet by how much) bit she has asked for hers to only come to her knees.

Who knows. at the moment, I'm still contemplating making myself a Hogwarts Colours Scarf or just a scrappy scarf like Dr. Who used to wear!
