Order of the Phoenix (Knitting spoilers only ;) )

I went to an advanced screening of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix this morning and I'm happy to say that I really like it! I wasn't sure I would, because book 5 is my least favourite so far (I find angry Harry annoying). But it was good.

I'm not going to say more because I don't want to spoil it for anyone. But I can say that Hermione has a beautiful sweater in one scene. White with fair isle on the yoke. And I'm sure we'll see Weasley twins scarves popping up on the Web in the near future (they receive them on Christmas. Arthur Weasley has a nice one too). Luna Lovegood had a nice sweater too. A blue one, with a texture similar to Thermal from Knitty.

You know you're obsessed with knitting when you notice the knits at the movies :)

So today is a good day, but yesterday was bad, so bad. So I figured I needed some cheering up. I went to my LYS to buy the new Knitscene and I also picked up some Berroco Ultra Alpaca:

I'll be using it to make the woven scarf, on the cover of last winter's Vogue Knitting (I think it was winter). It's going to be a beautiful scarf and I'll be able to wear it with hat of every colour!

Have a nice weekend everyone!

I have the same yarn in the same color! LOL! ;) I made a sweater out of it, well technically it's not finished but that's not the point! ;)

Do you mean the Woven Trellis Scarf? I'm in the middle of the WTS, it's a long knit! LOL

Now, you have me drooling!! New Scarves? Sweaters to die for? Great. Now I won't be paying attention to what got left out, but my hubby will hear about the dang scarf knitting and sweater knitting I have to do after seeing this!

Geez...Now I don't want to wait until the 11th to get to see this!!!

No, you can't have it. Sorry! (pssst, I discovered more mistakes - right at the end of the lace. I think at that time I was just all "laced out"...)

I wasn't a big fan of the HP movies 2 and 3, 4 was alright - but I am definitely curious about No 5.
