OWL Subject & Option (if available): History of Magic, option 3
Project Name: SPEW Squares for Pine Ridge Reservation
Brief Description: I was inspired by our lovely Headmistress pinkleo
in my choice of OWL. There is a group over on Ravelry that collects squares to seam together into blankets for Pine Ridge Reservation. It's super cold there, and they need lots of love. I used the vintage technique and pattern of crocheting granny squares. Half of the squares are traditional squares, and half of the squares were more solid squares. I created 84 (6") squares total. My muggle mother learned of what I was doing, and decided to contribute as well. As she is a muggle, she can't use the Gemino charm to produce as many squares, but she did a great job with her non-magical wand and added 24 squares! Our combined total (which will be mailed out tomorrow at lunch) is 108 squares!
Don't mind the unwoven ends. As our Headmistress knows, the crafty witch who puts the blankets together prefers to cast the charm to weave in ends herself, so she is confident the charm has been cast correctly.

My mom's squares! (not to be considered as an official part of my OWL - I'm just showing off for her because she's awesome, but not on Craftster)
Class/Challenge/House Pride: March Detention
Project Name: Hermione's Everyday Socks
Brief Description: I started these socks in the beginning of February and was really hoping to finish them before the end of the Winter Semester. Alas, it took me until the 3rd to finish the second sock. These were knit with lovely SweetGeorgia Tough Love sock yarn.
Class/Challenge/House Pride: Horcrux Hunt - Slytherin's Locket
Project Name: Flower Cupcakes
Brief Description: These cupcakes were inspired by Mr. Ronald Wealsey, the bottomless pit. He absolutely loves to eat, so I'm sure that I could use these cupcakes to motivate him to help me destroy Slytherin's locket!
