Luna Lovegood: Style guru

I wanted to crochet a light scarf and so to a-Ravelry I went.

I found this great pattern inspired by a scarf that Luna Lovegood wore in one of the Harry Potter movies. (While I love the movies and books, I am no fanatic, or else I would know which book/movie exactly off the top of my head... and I don't. for shame.)

Half way through I realised that I might have mixed up the US/UK terms in my head and had done it all wrong. But I just kept what I was doing consistent as I quite liked how it was turning out anyway. It is riddled with errors and asymmetry, but then, so am I.

I passed this scarf onto my poor sick sister this afternoon, hoping it is imbibed with magical medicinal powers to cure her bronchitis. Get well soon Sairs.

Lucky Sairs! - well sort of, if you conveniently forget about the bronchitis element.

Jade said...

Don't you just LOVE Ravelry?
The day I entered the site,I must've spent about 4 hrs straight going thru patterns.
Thanks for the encouragement on moving...I am so tired of it and the worst part hasn't even happened yet ugh!
