Weasley Jumper

Look what my Mom made me for Christmas:

Gwenyver's Weasley Jumper

My very own Weasley Jumper. Okay, so she finished it a bit after Christmas (I got it yesterday), but it just makes the Holidays longer! I've wanted one for awhile now, but while I can do anything with a sewing machine, I couldn't knit if my life depended on it (well, I'd probably manage to learn if that was the case). Don't ask me how she made it, I don't have a clue. All I know is I am now the proud owner of a Weasley Jumper!

By the way, if you've been reading this wondering what the heck is a Weasley Jumper, let me explain briefly: it is a home made sweater made by Molly Weasley in the Harry Potter books. Every year, she knits one for each member of her family to give as Christmas presents. They can vary in colour, but they always have the wearer's initial on the front.

The Weasley Twins say they are lovely and warm. I can tell you mine is very comfy the way big sweaters are (I think it could fit another me if I stretched it enough).

Thanks Mom!
