Kitty: Progress Report on Harry Potter Scarf

I can so sympathize with Wendy at Knit and Tonic showing her husband the sock book. My husband had hinted to both MG and I that if he knew a knitster they could knit him a Harry Potter scarf. Though MG and I really though the colours should be for Slytherin, Gryffindor won out. I searched all over for the proper colours and ordered yarn from Kpixie right before Christmas. I made the big mistake to swatch 1*1 ribbing and stockinet to let him decide. As you guessed he choose 1*1 ribbing for the scarf and knit in the round.

This scarf is just drinking yarn for breakfast, the final count will be something like 17 skeins of yarn and weigh in around 2 lbs. Luckily the sweet gals at Kpixie was able to get me more yarn. It just arrived on saturday so hopefully I can get it done this week.

Since we actually had this lovely orange disk appear in the sky again today by some freak of nature, I rushed out to get a progress photo.
