I've been diagnosed with DKS

Apparently, I'm afflicted.  Terribly.  Did you know that 8.5 out of 10 knitters suffer from Delusional Knitting Syndrome?  I've just joined a support group to help me manage this terrifying disorder.  I didn't even know I had it until "MsBijoux" on my Yahoo Knitlist Group named it.  At least I suffer not alone.  Currently, my main symptom is Harry Potter related, and is accompanied by a tightness in my chest....It's causing me great pain to admit defeat, but alas, time stands for no woman.  We haven't actually gone to the movie yet.  I mean, technically, I could have as many as 3 whole days till we go.  Minus the Turkey Day prep & noshing, I could probably work in 1 more quick HP item to add to the current 5 that are finished.
Oh, there, see?  That's my disorder talking. 
One day, one skein, one project, one stitch at a time.

Harry Potter and the Feverish Knitter

With Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows mere days/hours away, I continue to furiously finish knitting little items for my family members to wear when we go (unbeknown to them, MmWaaHaaHaa).

Yes, I am, by extension of my Frisby-ness, an HP Geek!

You see, we have a tradition in the Frisby family, and that is we all see the HP movies together, as one crazy family unit.  We
shared and read the books when they first came out, so it's only natural we'd continue that into the films.  We are 10 strong, and present a formidable force in any theater...

So far completed in my personal HP knitting challenge (mostly found on Ravelry.com, all free patterns):

Gryffindor Scarf  
Gryffindor Slouchy Beret
Slytherin Fingerless gloves
Fingerless Quidditch Gloves 
Ravenclaw Tie (see above Gryffindor Scarf link)

OMN (on my needles) at the moment is one Slytherin Skull Cap...I hope to incorporate the Dark Mark on it if I can figure out how to shrink the current intarsia chart I have. 
Knitting is one big learning adventure for me!

Next blog; I've promised my animals an introduction.  They are contemplating the group nom de plume of "Fris's Frizzy Frrriends"  I'm trying to talk them out of that.
