Hermione Granger-inspired knitting roundup!!!

**************************************************

Of Hallows and Horcruxes Sweater  - This sweater is inspired by the sweater worn by Hermione Granger in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1” during several of the scenes set in the forest.

Hermione’s Scarf - The Fair Isle scarf worn by Hermione in the Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince movie.

Elan Mitts  -  Knit in a similar style to Hermione’s fingerless mitts in The Deathly Hallows.

Godric’s Hollow Hat  -  A hat inspired by the one Hermione is wearing in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Hermione Hearts Ron Hat  -  This sweet little hat was inspired by the movie based on the book Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. 

Hermione’s Everyday Socks  -  Hermione, as described in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter Series, is a rather smart and practical heroine. While she can dress up with the best of them, these socks remind me of something she might wear while practicing charms or transfiguration or reading up on Arithromancy in the Gryffindor Common Room.

Hermione’s Time Turner Mitts  -  Hermione applies her knitting skills in her attempts to liberate the Hogwarts house-elves in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Scholastic, 2003), but before she embarked on charity knitting, she may have tried her hand at a few functional garments for herself, such as these mitts. With a Time-Turner in her possession, she could have found the extra time that every knitter craves to finish projects. Maybe she carried her entire knitting library around with her in her bag with the Undetectable Extension Charm? “Accio Knitter’s Companion!”

Mudblood Cardigan  -  Hermione Granger was the inspiration for this design. She may be Muggle-born, but she’s also the cleverest witch her age. Her cleverness and strength make her a favorite. The Mudblood Cardigan is inspired by her fitted, simply lined, girl-next-door style, a look that is perfect for doing battle against the Dark Arts.

It’s September: I’ve moved into town,
into the attic of an old barn—a big open room I reach
by climbing a ladder that rises through a hole in the floor.
The room is long and high, with windows at each end,
a row of skylights that leak rain, and shake
and chatter in the northeast winds. I sleep beneath
the roof’s steep pitch, my mattress flat on the boards,
looking up at the high ceiling, where morning
diffuses downward in grains of bright dust.

This was the old painter’s studio.
The light in those famous canvases is still here
—he couldn’t carry it away with him—
though his paintings took away everything else,
opening space with a stroke of blue or yellow.
I think of his violent loves, the stories
they still tell about him here.
But how quiet and alive his paintings were,
how they quiver with the life not yet realized.

Cynthia Huntington, from “The Attic,” The Radiant (Four Ways Books, 2003)

Stand Like This for 2 Minutes Per Day

No, for real, though—this is a thing.  Not sure about the science behind it, but it makes me feel fancy and powerful regardless.  I highly recommend it.

There actually is legit science behind this. In fact, here’s an entire TED Talk about the science behind it, and the confidence-related chemicals that your brain produces JUST BY YOU STANDING LIKE THIS.

DES, THERE’S WONDER WOMAN SCIENCE BEHIND YOU TEACHING THIS TO OUR GIRLS

Ladies and Gentlemen, craftsmanship. One of the finest examples of taking pride in what you do, and making absolutely sure no detail is too small.
