Challenge: bean- sprout
House: ravenclaw
Project: helmet hat for Eleanor
You would not believe how many compliments I get when I'm wearing my crazy high vis helmet hat! My friend Eleanor wanted one too, so I knitted this up for her...


Challenge: bean- vomit
House: ravenclaw
Project: Vikki and her Technicolor dream square
It may be cheesy, but Joseph is a classic piece of musical theatre! Especially in the west end, where it's been on so many times that nearly everyone had worked it at some point, it's infamous for its 12 show a week schedule, millions of children backstage, and heap of awkward large props (life size chicken wire and papier mache camels... Ridiculous plastic pyramid... THAT COAT!)

This blanket square, using left over Technicolor yarn in linen stitch (which I've been meaning to try forever! It's slow to work but I really like it), is my homage to joseph


It was red and yellow and green and brown
And scarlet and black and ocher and peach
And ruby and olive and violet and fawn
And lilac and gold and chocolate and mauve
And cream and crimson and silver and rose
And azure and lemon and russet and grey
And purple and white and pink and orange
And red and yellow and green and brown
Scarlet and black and ocher and peach
And ruby and olive and violet and fawn
And lilac and gold and chocolate and mauve
And cream and crimson and silver and rose
And azure and lemon and russet and grey
And purple and white and pink and orange
And blue

Newt Submission!

Subject: Potions
House: Ravenclaw
Project:
I am really pleased with how this came out!
It's only my second time doing colourwork and in places my train is off (plus there's one bird with a short tail...) but I still think it looks okay Smiley
I tried 3 times to do the button holes, but they never really came out neat, so once I was done I still felt like they were letting the project down and ended up ripping back to replace them with loops instead.
my friend's baby is now overdue, and this is sized 3 months, so it'll be a while but eventually I'll share a cute baby modeling shot too...

And a quick project dump;

Challenge: bean, toast
House: ravenclaw
Project: creepy valentines
These cards went in the Valentine parcels I sent to my nibblings, making use of an old copy of time out Smiley don't worry, the parcels had notes so they'd know they were from me and not be creeped out!


Challenge; detention, Feb
House: ravenclaw
Project: replacement cowl
I lost my cowl! It was one of the first things I knit, and I loved it, the perfect colours and softness Sad knitting up a new one in the exact same yarn and colours should have been annoying but I did it over a long gossipy afternoon with a friend who's just back from tour (we haven't seen each other in ages) and it flew by (especially remembering how long the original took me...)

Speaking of which...

OWL PROPOSAL
Subject: SoAR option 3
House: ravenclaw
Project: rainbow splash socks

I'll be making my own set of runes (knitting pattern) which will feature a number of things that I haven't done before... An afterthought heel and a ruffle edging

They'll be ankle socks because I don't have enough yarn for full ones (that's why the afterthought heel too), I'm going to use this piece if gorgeousness I balled this morning (rainbow splash merino by independent dyer Little Boo)

But most importantly, I'll be using the foot section (ie boring knitting with no shaping) to learn the continental method (I'm currently a thrower...) Which I've been putting off for a while because, whilst I know it'll speed me up in the long run, it's gonna slow me down while I relearn...

Challenge; House unity
House; ravenclaw
Project: Philosopher's Stone keyring
I made a bunch of these in all the house colours as prizes for the challenge series I ran last semester - I know most of them have arrived now (bar a couple that have escaped their envelopes en route...)
They are lasercut acrylic, this one is ravenclaw blue & bronze obviously Cheesy our first hpc merch!

Class: MS
House: ravenclaw
Project; shoe repaint
It has become apparent to me that both muggles and wizards have a love of beautiful shoes!
Planning a night out for a friend's birthday, I laid or my clothes, and my muggle housemate saw my shoes - 7 1/2 inch stilettos Smiley she wanted to see if she could walk in them, and of course tripped straight over (I can only wear them with a little magical assistance), scuffing the surface design and necessitating a touch up job with some oil paints!
Before:


After

I had the devil's own job matching that cream background colour!

Love the dino hat!

Quick project drop...

Challenge: Always challenge
House: ravenclaw
Project: hood for Ben
My friend Ben asked for a bear hood without the ears (sort of defies the point I think) and a bit less loose than my usual ones, so I wiped this up for him. He's the ideal craft recipient because was so pleased with it, he wore it the whole evening in the pub, pretending to be robin hood or a character in assassins creed with his nerf gun (see photo)

Side note: you know what's fun at work? 2 or 3 bits with Nerf guns Cheesy it would be annoying except they are super cute and cheeky about it so I can't help but join in playing around, ducking under tables when they come in the room...

Class: arithmetic
House: ravenclaw
Project: kantha pencil roll
What I really like about this traditional Bengali method of using scrap fabric is the way the rows of stitching give the layers of fabric waves, it's really tactile and lovely Smiley

Fly by posting...

Challenge: detention, January
House: ravenclaw
Project: scrapbook update
My eternal wip! I updated several pages of Christmas and my birthday stuff Smiley


Challenge: head's challenge January
House: ravenclaw
Project: basket weave square
Another new to me knit pattern...


Challenge: house pride
House: ravenclaw
Project: headband
Using left over yarn, this headband will keep my friend's brain warm while she rides her horse


Class: potions
House: ravenclaw
Project: helmet cover
As soon as i heard of red heart reflective yarn I knew I had to make this! It's a pom pom hat helmet cover to wear whist cycling, in hi-vis colours and with reflective bits too (I need to get a night photo so you can see). I knitted it in the round, making up the pattern as I went along. It's incredibly stylish Wink

Class: apparition
House: ravenclaw
Project: Burano blue
I visited Venice for my 30th birthday last month, ash and my favorite part was the cooked buildings on the island of burano - the colour of this square is based on them, and the opaque turquoise canals!


Class: bean - coconut
House: ravenclaw
Project: what's a tropical island without a leafy green canopy of Palm leaves to lay under?
This cozy injuries statue will form a green canopy for slightly chiller climes!


Class; flying
Spew: refugee action
House: ravenclaw
Project: button held wrapping
 I used this wrapping method for all the largest presents, because the button could be fled on the back to stabilise the ribbon or twine. I used all random buttons from my stash Smiley
I thought I posted this with my other gift wrapping fundraiser posts but I can't see it so it must have Horton lost along the way!
