I'm a geek. It's okay I can admit it. I've been this way my whole life. It's just what happens when you are raised by a Trekkie. Anyway on to the reason H.P. is ruining my life. As I'm sure you are all aware Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows pt. 2 comes out in just 12 short days. I am going to the midnight showing with my mom, my sister and two very good friends. Being a geek and one that crochets I have decided I am going to make a hat for anyone who comes in their house colors (and yes we all know what house we would be in). I posted pictures of my hat a few posts ago and I am happy to wear it to the premiere, but my sister is a Hufflepuff and mom is a Gryffindor so I have those two hats to make. . . the problem is I don't like any of the patterns I have found online for my sister and her house colors so I am making my own pattern (let me just say it is difficult to do yellow and black without looking like a bumblebee). I have started this hat 3 times!
I think this is the pattern I am going to use, unfortunately it is too small. I think I am going to keep the pattern exactly the same and just switch hooks to make it the size I need and then I can finally start on my mom's Gryffindor hat and my other friends hats too.
P.S. if you want to figure out what house you are in I found this amazing personality test that is really accurate. It can be found here. And I hope you all enjoy this last installment of Harry Potter!
