Yay! *does the dance of glee*

Although... no tubular cast-on? *is just curious*
you found menot_gini on August 21st, 2007 02:05 pm (UTC)
yeah, i didn't feel like figuring out how that worked...i guess i'm lazy.
yclept: knit snitchdjinnj on August 21st, 2007 05:37 pm (UTC)
Oh, no big deal. I was wondering 'cause a row in a tubular cast-on is a half a row normally, 'cause it's essentially worked as double knitting. So if folks would prefer to work it with a conventional cast-on, I should put in a note to work half as many rows.

Just out of curiosity, how did you make the chart? It's very crisp and clear!
you found menot_gini on August 21st, 2007 02:06 pm (UTC)
i made it in excel, and then i did a print screen, pasted in the paint, cropped it and then saved it as a jpeg.

Thanks for sharing! This is great; it's a less obvious Harry Potter fan knit - not that there's anything wrong with more obvious ones - but this is more likely to draw "What's that you're wearing?" questions. Great job on the hat!

Dude, sweet. I've been wanting to make a Deathly Hallows something for ages but haven't had the time. Someday soon!

Great wristband, and I LOVE the hat! It's adorable!

I like the wristband (although still too advanced for me as of yet).

Icon love :)

i sooooo have to make one for myself! and once i do probably all my HP friends. any idea how much yarn the wristband took? it looks like a good way to use up scraps.

your deathly hallows looks so much better than mine... Mine you cant see the circle at all, although thats possibly cause I just learned how to double stitch.

Randomly, I think I'm going to borrow the Hallows chart for purposes other than wristbands. Perhaps a blanket. Or scarf.

I think I like Harry Potter too much sometimes.

Ah sweet! If only I knew how to follow patterns... >_<''
