A little more work done on Xmas 2005 Project #1, and some work done on the PoA Slytherin scarf. Enough to start on the 12th color repeat at least.
And the good news is that the MacGyver job was a success. When I pulled out my US:7's to work on the scarf, the bamboo tips seemed to be firmly re-attached to the metal sockets, didn't pull out when I was knitting, and I had no trouble moving the loops along the joins. Aleene's Tacky Glue does in fact rule!
