I did manage to make some things before the midnight release of Harry Potter. Along with my sweet sweater, I made some golden snitch earrings and a Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean Bag. I plan on making a similar bag for M&M's. :)
My Bertie Bott's Bag was knit in the round, and I made a bottom piece in the round, and stitched it together (like it became a thick circle) Then I picked up so many stitches and knitted up about 9 inches and created 6 button holes, then stitched another 4 rows and binded off. Then I embroidered the Bertie Bott's and added the liner and my tag that reads, "Handmade with love by Robin" :) THEN I added jelly beans and ate them like crazy during a scary intense scene with a snake during HP7. :)
I made TWO mad eye moody eyes. One is much larger. The larger one was the first one I made, which i why I made a second not so humungus one. :) Everyone at the theater liked them. I heard them whispering, "OMG she knitted that!"
Don't think anyone noticed my golden snitch earrings but I love them. They took no time at all to make. :)
This is my phallic looking lightsaber chap stick coozie/holder. The lightsaber part glows - it's suppose to be blue but the picture turned out brighter. Now I will always have my chapstick on hand. This is excellent with winter coming. :)
It's time to retire and work on the Celtic hat some more. Much love to you all!
