The Hogwarts Hat is complete! Gold Medal, here I come!
It's great to have it finished. I was so worried about it for so long. I'm glad the Knitting Olympics made me finally tackle the project. It came out not exactly as I pictured, but it looks good. I think I felted it just a little too long. It fits and all, but I wanted it to look a little wonky. Hogwarts is a bit wonky, and I wanted the hat to reflect that. If I roll the brim down it looks pretty cool as a cloche hat.
Now that it's done, I feel that it wasn't as bad and hard as I was making it out to be. It was a challenge, and I went a little nuts with all of my math to figure the pattern, but now I would say that it is a fairly easy project. Something that Knitty would describe as "tangy."
If anyone is interested I could post the pattern I made up. Just let me know.
I'm ready for the next movie and book releases with my Ravenclaw scarf and my Hogwarts House Unity Hat!!! All I need now is my own Weasley. (Although, if I did my own initial, "A", it might be a little too much like "The Scarlet Letter.")
Down with Voldemort!!!
By the way, I feel that Snape is innocent. He's playing a part in a plan.
Book Seven!!! Where are you!!! I'm waiting!!!
