Pygmy Puffs

I belong to a Harry Potter knitting group, where we all work on knitting projects related to or inspired by the books, and then post our pictures or patterns for everyone else to see. The new hot idea, since HPaHBP came out is Pygmy Puffs. (For anyone who hasn't read the book yet, they are miniature puffskeins that Fred and George Weasley breed to sell in their joke shop. One of which, Arnold, becomes Ginny Weasley's new pet.) In the book they are described as "...round balls of fluff in shades of pink and purple, all rolling around the bottom of a cage." Do you think I came close? My little "Arnold" was so fun and fast to make (20 minutes, and I'm a slow knitter) that I think I will knit up a bunch!

For anyone interested in checking out the group or the patterns, go here.

Very cute! I'm sure Bard will want to make some. :-) They might be a good project for all of my young knitters, actually!

Point me to the HP knitter's group. Bard knitted a very cool eyelash scarf. I'll have to get photos up soon.

That is so adorable! I love the eyelash yarn-look and may do a few myself after I've exhausted my supply of Plush. :D
