Speaking of which...

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...

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!


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!

Class: astronomy
House: ravenclaw
Project: bike mittens
It took a fair few attempts to get a version of these that fit - I'd seen the idea before but other ones leave your fingers inside and your brakes outside, which is a pretty major design flaw I think! These have the brakes inside, and the gap is big enough that getting a thumb out for great changes isn't an issue Smiley
So I more have several misfitted mittens lying around! It's a good job I chose such a fun bright yellow colour that kept me cheerful in all the iterations!
(These aren't actually for me, they're for a friend, so it doesn't matter that the colour clashes with my bike horn!)

Class: HoM
House: ravenclaw
Project: Zonko Cowl
The color way I used reminds me of Weasley's Wizard Wheezes, and in turn Zonko's hogsmede shop

Class: Alchemy
House: ravenclaw
Project: gin and tonic soap
I've never made soap before, these are just melt and pour so it was simple and fun! I used a tutorial on this 'stained glass' effect, but added my own theme: gin and tonic - or lime and Jupiter Smiley an idea I got from a lip balm mistress Jennie gave me, yum yum yum! I made two loaf tins worth, and sliced it up a Christmas gifts

Class: ComC
House: ravenclaw
Project: bike helmet earmuffs
Walking along the other day, I noticed a very peculiar spaniel... It's ears kept changing colour! It seemed like they changed depending on what the dog was listening too, going from bright purple to deep crimson, all the way round the could wheel and back again to a gorgeous turquoise... The muggle walking the dog didn't seem to notice, so it must have a cloaking method of some kind! This isn't a creature I can find in any of our textbooks, so I am continuing to research in case it's a new discovered species Cheesy
I decided learn about his ears but mocking up these floppy, bright, warm earmuffs, which will just happen to also fit over the straps of Tom's bike helmet to keep him snuggly!

Challenge: detention, December
House: ravenclaw
Project: soap wrapping
I always think that nice wrapping of gifts for under the tree is a decoration!
I wrapped the soap in greaseproof paper to protect it, and finished with some dried lime slices (done in the oven) and embroidery thread

Class: divination
House: ravenclaw
Project: care instructions
My dream walk revealed many odd images, of the people I love tortured by having to wear shrunken knitwear... Horror!
Thus, I was inspired to make care labels for the knitted items I'm giving away this festive season, with washing instructions and yarn materials stamped on the back... Here's one example, but I've done a fair few already!

Class: herbology
House: ravenclaw
Project: M is for millimeter
Made using a tiny metal spike, somewhat like a sewing needle

Class: transfiguration
House: ravenclaw
Project: blanket square
Setting fibrealchemist's Weasley blanket, I decided to make my own with scrap wool. It will be a long project since I'll just do it occasionally between other things! But it'll be fun, a chance to try out stitch patterns, this is just double moss, but I've never done it before and I was intrigued how it can me out on this varigated green yarn... Sort of like lizard skin I thought!
