You better believe this nerd saw it at midnight. Did you?
And yes, it was awesome.
There are some nerderies that I try to conceal, but my love for Harry Potter is too great to ever try and hide. I've read all of the books handfuls of times and they will always remind me of my childhood/young adulthood. The fact that this is all really "over" makes me super sad (who else used to line at midnight for the books?), but I will never really be Harry Potter-less.
And, as I say all the time...knitters are nerds through and through. A quick search on Ravelry will reveal Weasley sweaters, snitch socks, every hat Hermione has ever worn on screen and endless interpretations of house scarves (puts all the Doctor Who scarves to shame). So, though the saga may be over, the fandom will carry on for a long time. No doubt about that.
And yes, I almost cried. Several times. Enough about that. Here are some projects to keep you busy while reliving one of the most popular fandoms of all time.

Even though there is a lack of Ravenclaw love, I must say that might be my favorite house. Well, either that or Slytherine, but I did purchase "Intelligence," the limited edition Jimmy Beans color from Lorna's Laces. I bought one skein of Shepherd's Sock (possibly a new favorite yarn...) and love, love, love it. Act quick; they only have three left in stock!
