Knitting at Diagon Alley

Diagon Alley!

Diagon Alley!

A bonus of having a kiddo that does a traveling sport is sometimes you get to go to very cool places. My daughter competed in the AAU Springboard Diving Nations last week in Orlando, Florida. We are huge Harry Potter Fans, so in the few hours before our plane left we went to Diagon Alley at Harry Potter World in Universal Studios. I was giddy with the knitting.

I saw the Harry and Ron sweaters for sale. These were acrylic, but they did a good job of looking like they were knit from Rowan’s Felted Tweed.

 

 

Yarn Shop!

Yarn Shop!

 

There is a a yarn shop! Spindlewarps sadly is a display shop not a shopping shop (just like the bookstore Flourish and Blotts), but can you imagine if it were open for shopping? I stood in front of the window filling it with inventory in my mind for a long time. Even if they just sold kits, it would be fantastic!

We had frozen Butterbeer, rode the Escape from Gringotts ride and shopped a little. I bought Molly Weasley’s wand and a Time Turner because¬† crafters always wish we had more time.

 

 

 

Our favorite thing was sitting a watching people. Everyone is so happy and excited to see everything and all of the other fans. It was a great way to recover from the stress of a big meet. I’ll leave you with a little video of Molly’s magical knitting needles, something I really wish I had!
