The Little Hufflepuff

Recently, I finished my first item of clothing entirely knitted on toothpicks.


Knitting on toothpicks makes things just the right scale for Sarah, although it can get fiddly sometimes.


This scarf was done in moss stitch, just because I love the look and feel of it.


A certain magizoologist was spotted in Diagon Alley wearing the scarf, so it’s already quite popular in the wizarding community.




Even among droids! (Sidenote, I reckon BB8 is a Hufflepuff.)

Anyways, see ya!

    The thing is, I did not crochet for a while, and then I just forgot! Next time my aunt comes over, I’ll see if she can re-teach me. And by the way, what is a Hufflepuff exactly?

      Hufflepuff is one of the houses at Hogwarts, in the Harry Potter series of books. I’m glad you’re re-learning to crochet, it’s a lot of fun! 😊

        The first thing that I will probably do will be blanket.

    I’m so impressed that you can knit on toothpicks! I would never think of doing that! And your BB-8 is absolutely adorable!

      Aw, thank you! It’s a little fiddly at first, but it’s very similar to knitting on normal needles. 😊

    Oh my goodness I love it! Her whole outfit looks great 🙂 And of course Newt Scamander is brilliant 😉

      Thank you so much, I’m glad you liked it! Newt is a great character, I agree. 😊

    It looks great. It looks as if knitting with toothpicks is worth all the trouble it probably took!


    • filliefanatic June 22, 2017 / 8:08 pm

      Thank you, and it can be quite frustrating at times! 😊

        I used to know how to crochet, do you think that you could crochet with toothpicks as well?


      • filliefanatic June 23, 2017 / 8:30 am

        Really? You should start again! Crocheting with toothpicks would be a bit harder, as you’d have to work out how to get a hook on the end of the toothpick. Maybe you could carve it? But that’s possibly more fiddly than knitting with the toothpicks. 😊

    Sarah looks quite dapper in that coat and her new scarf! I salute you for knitting the moss stitch on toothpicks, I imagine that would get quite fiddly. Newt Scamander has certainly done wonders for popularizing being a Hufflepuff, hehe, and I think you’re right about BB-8 being one as well! 😀

      Thank you, she does look dapper! Knitting on toothpicks definitely requires patience, and a steady hand too. 😊
