1  Re: HP Craftalong ~Summer Semester 2014~ *JOIN ANYTIME* in Craftalongs by gaudiknight on: July 03, 2014 09:21:33 AM
There have been so many awesome projects lately I can't keep up with them all!

Vincentvanbuck - Your little box makes me wish October would come sooner.

Naanje - I love the paracord bracelets.  And the leaf pendant is great!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Detention in the Dungeon
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Cake!
Brief Description: Celebrations are hard in the summer when it is too hot for regular cake and icing.  Thankfully there's Angel-Food Cake (which I'm convinced is some kind of strange muggle magic) to refresh ourselves, fulfill our cravings for cake, and to complement whatever berries we managed to pick from near the lake (which something I imagine people do at lakes - I don't really do vacations near water).

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Arithmancy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Paper Pterodactyls
Brief Description: I needed a photoprop one day and had just found a pack of itty bitty origami paper in my stash.  I decided to make some cranes, but then discovered my fingers had forgotten how to fold them.  I found instructions and proceeded to make 9 to get the process back in my muscle memory, but they turned out looking a bit more like dinosaurs than birds.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean - Grapefruit
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Four Frocks
Brief Description: I found four little doll dresses I had knit up two years ago but never blocked and seamed.  They were such nice citrus-y colors (mostly - there's one grape masquerading as a grapefruit) that I knew I had to get them done for this summer.  It is quite refreshing to have some long neglected WIPs out of the work-basket.

I feel like I'm slacking this semester - but hey, it's summer.  No one's too terribly academic when it's this hot.

Class: Astronomy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Settling In
Brief Description: I moved over the weekend, and if that doesn't embody creating order out of chaos (and also chaos out of order) I don't know what does.  I used my muggle skills from last semester to assemble some bookshelves (the only white ones in my town, so they're quite rare beasts).  It was such a relief to have my books back in some sort of coherent order.  I have no idea where craft supplies are going to live, but I can find my reading materials.  Priorities!

One final project before the semester ends!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: May Detention - Finish a WIP
Quidditch: Thread and ribbon were thrift store finds, which I believe earns some kind of points
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Mischa's Dragon-scale Dress
Brief Description: I started this project in March, misplaced it, then found it in time to finish for May detention.  My grandfather gave me a bunch of crochet thread he found at the goodwill, so I've slowly been making my way through it.

Those dresden plates are so cheerful!  Awesome work.  Can't wait to see what they become.

I have a few projects to post before the month ends.  I'm reaching back to April for some of these - I have not been particularly organized or crafty these past few weeks.

Exhibit 1 - Socks!

Sock by AluminumDryad, on Flickr
I don't think I've posted them here, yet.  They're my first pair and took forever!  But they used up nearly two balls of sock yarn I'd been hoarding since 2010.

Exhibit 2 - Doll Dress

Sundress by AluminumDryad, on Flickr
I make a lot of these, but they're quick and relatively easy.  (And the dolls don't complain if my finishing techniques are a little wonky.)

Exhibit 3 - Dishcloths

114 Knitting by AluminumDryad, on Flickr
That's two more skeins out of the stash.  I hate to think how long they'd been waiting to be used, probably since my last dishcloth kick 5 years ago.

After a hectic month I'm popping in to add a few quick projects before the semester ends.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Dumbledore's Army Catch-Up - Sign the Parchment
Quidditch: Stash fabric and buttons!  Bludger to Ravenclaw.  (Also thrifted lace sash if such a tiny bit counts)
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Sundress
Brief Description: Looking back at my projects thus far this year, it seems to be mostly doll clothes.  So why fight the trend?  I used to make a wider variety of crafts, but tiny dresses are nearly instant gratification.  This one was supposed to be part of my arithmancy NEWT, but I had to put that on hold for real life nonsense (yay travels and house guests and getting ready to move!).  And of course, just about everything I make is from stash (and yet the stash never seems to get smaller - I have yet to figure out the physics of this phenomenon)

Sundress by AluminumDryad, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Divination
SPEW: Made for a fundraiser my grandmother's church is holding for a little boy with cancer.
Quidditch: 2 balls of stash yarn!  Bludger to Slytherin?
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Dishcloths Galore
Brief Description: I looked at the sky at sunset and saw lots of pink and blue and fluffy clouds.  Then I looked in my project bag and saw lots of pink and blue and squishy yarn.
