Harry Potter the movie

My in-laws are in town and when they are around, we get to go out!! Hurray!! Hubby and I decided to have a date and go out to the movies. We decided to go along with the Harry Potter fever and watch Goblet of Fire. Really fabulous movie, much darker than the previous
movies. Obviously, not as good as the book as whole chunks of the book is missing, but enjoyable nonetheless.

This brings me neatly on to what's on my needles... The Gryffindor Prisoner of Azkaban scarf.. at the request of hubby. I made the mistake of showing him the Weasley knitalongs on Alison's blog and he wanted one. He loves maroon so here I am knitting this massive scarf. It's knitted in Jaeger Matchmaker Merino DK in shade 655 (maroon/burgundy) and Cygnet Superwash Pure New Wool DK in shade 2155(gold). It's a pretty good match of the colours I have to say.(anyone in the UK looking to knit this!) I'm about halfway through at the moment and I might save it for the holiday period as it is pretty mindless knitting and I won't need to consult the pattern.
It's also been very busy here with my Christmas card production. I've had fun making these cards. Now I just need to write them out and send them out, especially the ones which need to go overseas.
