Molly Weasley Sweater
Well, my Weasley sweater is coming along nicely. Almost done. Here it is - what I have so far. My camera makes the colors look brighter than they actually are. They are more like the original in the movie. It's been fun working on this design. It's my version of the sweater the character Molly Weasley wears in the Harry Potter movie, "Chamber of Secrets". I bought the DVD after reading several posts on Crochetville, an internet group I belong to. The scene is in Chapter 4, and I re-played it a dozen times, paused it and studied it, then set to work. In the movie, Mrs. Weasely is wearing a sleeveless smock-type apron over the sweater, so the body of the sweater can't be seen, except at the neckline. But it's the sleeves that really make this sweater interesting. The colors are fantastic, and I tried to mimic the pattern as best I could. I have it all written in long hand, and plan to get it written properly on the computer this week. I will post more pics of the finished sweater later this week.
