Off and Knitting

Has everyone gotten started? No reason to worry if you haven't - this project seems to knit up quickly once you get going, and we have plenty of time before the next round of Quidditich.

Here's a quick update, with the progress reports I have:

Calliope has cast on, but may have trouble getting gauge.
We've been joined at the last minute by Cassandra Puddlemere.
Emerald has a question - see the post below this one.
Lavender has posted a picture of her yarn choices - I can't wait to find out which one she used!
Ophelia will have a two-colored wrap in Ravenclaw colors.
Penelope is unhappy with the way the stitch rearranging is going - can anyone jump in and help her?
Queen Frysia liked the pattern so much that she started early.
Rowena reports that she's finished 6-8 inches with her kind of scary yarn.
And I finished four pattern repeats yesterday, and I really love my yarn.

Don't forget to blog about your progress! D.A. points and a new headwrap - everyone wins this knitalong!

Can I sneak in? I got my yarn, but forgot to pm you...

Hey all - started, but don't know if I like the black yarn I chose. It's great to work with, but you can't see all the fancy stitch-movin'. Will post pics on my blog, let me know what you think!!

I've cast on for not one but two! That stitch pattern is so easy to remember, so as I was going to bed the other night, I saw some yarn that had been "decorating" my room, and cast on using it, too! So now I'll have one for me, one for a gift - yay!

I blogged about my headscarf on my blog today... much happier with my choice of yarn that the one I had originally..

I am having trouble gauging. I've settled on the size seven needles with a 18 stitch cast on, but I'm still not entirely satisfied.

It's also giving me a little trouble because I've spent the last few months trying to tighten up my loose stitching style, and this requires looseness. :P

I'm finished mine--it's on my blog! Turned out very lovely, imo. Thanks for doing this!
