Challenge: Detention - April
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: To the Moon & Back Tea Infusers

Brief Description: I found some adorable moon charms recently, but didn't pay much attention to size when I ordered them.  They turned out to be far too big for charm bracelets, but a fantastic size for a new batch of metal tea infusers!  The moon charm says "I love you to the moon and back."

Challenge: Floo Powder #3 - Manchester
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Tee Shirt Yarn - Grey & Purple

Brief Description: I grew up in Manchester, New Hampshire, which modeled itself on Manchester, England.  The town planners specifically wanted to create a manufacturing city, and wanted to evoke the feeling of industry already underway in the original Manchester.  My Manchester soon outsized it's predecessor in terms of manufacturing and became the largest textile mill city in the world, for over 50 years.  There is even a statue of "Milly" commemorating the countless mill girls who worked, outlandishly long hours, for little pay and even less credit.  In the times when textiles were created by such hardworking folks, fabric was a valued commodity, and was reused in countless ways, rather than being thrown out when a garment became shabby or unfashionable.  Meanwhile, in an era when manufacturing jobs have been shipped overseas, and countless mill cities in the northeast are falling into ruin, Manchester has upcycled it's own old mill buildings, into a thriving downtown center where tech companies, revolutionary inventors, and new local businesses are flocking to. (Often leaving bigger city Boston, to be set up shop in what the locals lovingly call "Manch Vegas".) In this spirit of all of this, I decided to honor Milly and the Mill Girls of Manchester by upcycling worn out tees, into balls of tee shirt yarn for my next crocheted rug project. Never forget where you came from, but never stop evolving into a glorious new future.  (Bonus points if you clicked on, and read, the links. Wink)

Class: Transfiguration
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Tee Shirt Yarn - Turquoise

Brief Description: These poor tees are some of the ones I wear on my daily trips to the gym.  (Not the only ones, but they are in the regular rotation!)  The finally started getting a bit grungy and a few holes had formed.  But, as I'm planning a new and epic crocheted rug for our future house, I upcycled the usable portions into tee shirt yarn, rather than simply throwing them out.  (The grungy nature of the armpits  due to repeated workouts meant these were NOT suitable for donation, and would otherwise have ended up in a landfill.)  My bin of upcycled tee shirt yarn is now FULL!  I'm either going to have to get another bin, or get a house soon, so I can start crocheting a new rug.
