fantasy friday: luna lovegood's scarf

"A Wrackspurt - they're invisible, they float in through your ears
and make your brain go fuzzy," she said. "I thought I felt one zooming
around in here."

from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
by J.K. Rowling

Anyone else feel like a Wrackspurt got to them this week? Maybe it was the return of the rain and the cold. Maybe it's because J was nursing his second cold in as many months. Maybe it was the two enormous papers I spent all last weekend writing. Or maybe it was a Wrackspurt.

Whatever it was, this week my brain was decidedly fuzzy. No creativity inspired me to post on my blog. Instead, I spent my days either wrapped up in work, or wasting hours watching Grey's Anatomy and eating delivery Thai food (I blame Anna). And maybe I managed a little crochet.

I hope you'll forgive the lack of a recipe this week. Blame the Wrackspurt.

Instead, I'll share this pattern with you, which I used to make this replica of Luna Lovegood's scarf from the Harry Potter movies. I decided to honor Slytherin with this rich green tone, seeing as I never honor Slytherin, and we all know how important house relations are.

Go out and enjoy the sun, and with any luck, we'll be packing away our Luna Lovegood scarves for good by next Friday, and I'll be able to offer some clear-headed fantasy food again. Happy Friday!


  1. WHAT season are you on?? What part are you at????!

    I started from the beginning again a few weeks ago (read: I am CRAZY). But really, it's just too good not too! I want to live inside Seatle Grace!

    Aaanyways, love the scarf. Luna is one of my favorites!

    And you were missed this week! I kept checking your blog like a fanatic.

    1. I know...GA makes being a doctor look so glamorous. =)

      It makes me happy that you check my blog like I check yours!

  2. I love lazy days (and weeks...) and I love crochet also, I wish I could do it, I tried with my mom but took me hours to make two small flowers... hehehe have a great weekend!

  3. I think it's the weather! It's had me feeling lazy too ;) Beautiful color scarf! Love love that color! My absolute fave!

  4. you are super talented! i wish i was patient enough to crochet; your scarf is lovely!

  5. Do you possibly have this pattern written down somewhere you could give it to me at? The site is down and has been for a day or two. I was BENT on making the proper pattern as opposed to the other that floats around that I tweaked a bit and I need it! a.brighter.discontent@aol.com
