Absolutely Charming

As I am whizzing along in book 6 of the Harry Potter series, I am pleased to announce that I have finally made it in to the year 2007. What every other knitter on the planet must have known is now revealed to me. There is a knitting book based on items in the Harry Potter books and movies. It's called





As of Thursday night, I own a copy!
And I've knitted an elf hat!




Paddington heard me talking to The Professor about the hat and asked if he could model it.
"It's not going to fit you," I pointed out. "The elf hat is much too large for your head and will slip down over your eyes."
"How about if I wear it over my own yellow hat?" Paddington begged.
"I think it will still look too big and a little silly," I replied.
"Please, please, please, oh please, let me put it on anyway! I'll be just like a house elf!" he cried.
So I relented and said, "OK," and took his picture.
Paddington is very happy with the results, but I still think it looks like a little bear from Darkest Peru trying to appear much more grown up than he really is.
Well, it is sorta, kinda, cute, isn't it?



Silly Little Paddington

Paddington could use the elf hat as a sleeping bag . . . Just a suggestion.
