Hi everyone! This is my very first knitting project! I'm making one of those two-color chunky-striped scarves from the first couple Harry Potter movies, based off this pattern: http://www.the-leaky-cauldron.org/features/crafts/knitting/sspsstylehogwartsscarf. It's knit in the round, which is weird because when I move on to my second project once this is done, standard non-circular needles will feel strange to me.
I'm using the same color combo as the photo in that link (blue/bronze), but my blue is darker (Lion's Brand Wool-Ease worsted weight in 114 - Denim) and the closest thing I could find to bronze was gold (same brand in 171 - gold). I have three of each color stripe so far, though not fully done with the third gold stripe yet. Here's how it's coming along:
Doing my best, but as I said, I'm brand new at this! Also interesting thing to note, I didn't read the Harry Potter books or see any of the movies until this summer. I'm a bit behind the times.
