Claire sent me this marvellous photo of a transfigured Minerva McGonagall keeping a close eye on the Severus Snape doll that she knitted from my pattern. I love it! Claire says that Severus was more or less the first knitting project that she has undertaken, apart from an iPod cosy. So several hundred house points to Claire, and a large plate of Fox's Choc Fudge Crunch Creams for the common room, methinks.
If you'd like to knit your own Snape, you can buy my pattern in my Etsy shop.

New in my Etsy shop: Voldemort is about 15 inches tall and is hand-knitted from acrylic yarn. He is dressed in a floor-length evil-chap black robe with flared sleeves and black star fastening at front. He is wearing a jewel-encrusted snake pendant charm at his neck.
Nagini the snake is a whopping 19 inches long and has a flexible foam-covered wire stuffing, so she is fully posable - she's big enough to wrap around any of my Harry Potter dolls (hope she keeps away from Snape). She has a striped top, beige underbelly, ribbon tongue and black toy safety eyes.
Both Voldemort and Nagini are hand-knitted from my own patterns. If you'd like to make your own Snape or Lucius Malfoy dolls, you can buy my knitting patterns, too. Other Harry Potter dolls on the way!
