You Must Be a Weasley!

Harry Potter fans know that being a Weasley means ginger hair and second hand robes... but is also means the kind of warm family craziness that comes from being around people you love.

In particular, Molly Weasley takes charge in an "it's ok to be who we are" sort of way, never apologizing for the second hand robes, even when Ginny's jumper was last seen on the cat.

I've been a bit retrospect about Moms lately... my Mom passed away a couple of weeks ago.  It seems fitting then, that my crochet project this week should be "Mom" related!

Yes, Michele DuNaier has done it again... written a wonderful shawl pattern that connects to our favorite characters in a fun way with Ginny's Patronus Cloak.

Inspired by Molly's scrappy sleeves... frugal Molly has a way of never letting anything go to waste, including yarn.  I used 2,457 yards of sport weight yarn for this beauty.  The final ruffled row has 4, 225 stitches.  Whew!  What a great effect and a fun design!
