This Cool World

hi, so random, but i was just suddenly struck (again) by how cool the internet is.

well, the internet and the world.

i say this because it occurred to me that hey -- there are some knitting references in harry potter. and so i thought, "i wonder if there are any websites out there with knitting patterns related to harry potter, because that would be cool."

one entry into google:
HARRY POTTER KNITTING

found 168,000+ results.

doesn't that just make you happy?

  3. I'm am realizing that I am so uncool because (1) I don't knit and (2) I have never read a Harry Potter book or even watched a HP movie.

    PS GIRL, I love your blog!

  5. Just a girl.... just go sign up for a community education class for beginning knitters... just go to your local yarn shop and join in... just do it. it's a blast. as kristy will tell you. you can do it. just get the needles and your yarn and start something. then you can say yes, you knit. Instantly you become a player.

  9. my 11 year old bro has a fabulous griffindor scarf (knit like a tube, so it's flat AND all stockinette on the outside), and a griffindor sweater, with the matching golden snitch socks, all knit by the coolest big sis ever. I want to knit dobby socks, because I'm a serious geek.
