Weekend Inspiration: Harry Potter Knitting


A few weekends ago I had an amazing day out at the Warner Bros Studio tour. It's amazing, by the way. It's like a big museum of Harry Potter things. The level of detail, time and commitment that went into the hundreds of thousands of props, costumes and set designs was just amazing. The picture above is of a 1:24 scale model of Hogwarts. It pretty much filled an entire room. Just magic.


Anyway, the main reason for this post was to show you a couple of the props that really caught my eye, naturally yarn-based, naturally awesome. Above is Ron Weasley's bed in the Gryffindor dormitory with a gorgeous hand-knitted blanket by Mrs Weasley. What more could anyone want to take with them to boarding school?


A little while later, we went to visit the Burrow, the Weasley's home, where we found one of current projects. Look at the gorgeous stripes and knitting needles enchanted so that they knit for themselves!

Mrs Weasley is an inspiration!

Have you been inspired by any knitting from the movies?

  3. EXTREMELY late to the party here but I am just inlove with that patch blanket of Ron Weasley. It's amazing. I am fascinated with patch blankets for some reason!! (you know when something really fascinates you?). I am in the process of knitting one for my bed and, so far, it's going really well!. Patch blankets rock!. I'd like to go and see the tour sometime, looks really good.
