Just send me to Hufflepuff where I belong.
She told me that when she is eleven (she will be seven later this year), she just knows she'll be sorted into ____, because she is smart. (She is.)
That is what I remembered. I remembered playing lots of HP, that Luna is her favorite character, and that particular sentence, excepting the name of the house. I filled in the blank with Gryffindor, and proceeded to knit a bag for her birthday gift, imagining the fun it would add to her games.
I was about 3/4 done, and asked my husband for ideas of things to put in the bag, things related to Luna or Gryffindor.
"Luna was in Ravenclaw," was his response.
Oops! LOL All I could do was laugh at myself. I finished the bag anyway, though I left off some of the details. I'll be starting a Ravenclaw bag soon.
The pattern for this was free, available on Ravelry, named HP House Fair Isle Bag. I knit it in Hobby Lobby's I Love This Cotton. After I knit the Ravenclaw bag, I'll be lining both of them. Having knit this one, I've decided to go down a needle size for the next, to get a denser fabric. I'll also be using a chevron chart a friend designed, rather than the checkerboard.
