Next up in sample knits for The Knitting Nest – a project that happens to also be the household Halloween costume.
All four dogs are going as Harry Potter this year. I didn’t give them a choice.
|This sample is for a class I’ll teach for beginners who can already knit and purl, to give them skills in double-knitting, changing colors, k2tog, finishing, and blocking.
These are Gryffindor colors, even though I was sorted as a Ravenclaw. If you haven’t been sorted into your house yet, this test is pretty cool.
|My guess is that Gus would actually be sorted into Slytherin, which explains his discomfort with wearing Gryffindor colors.|
|It’s hard to tell if Lou loves it, or hates it.|
|Oh. He hates it.
I would guess that he would actually be a Hufflepuff.
|Abe awaits his turn. I think he’d be a Gryffindor.
It was at this point that I started to worry about the destruction of the “costume”, so Ike didn’t get a chance to try it on.
That’s okay. Ike has suffered plenty of humiliation with modeling handknits.
