Challenge; detention, January
House; Ravenclaw
I've had these knitting needles for a while, they are doubles of sizes i already own but were inherited from my nan so i didn't want to get rid of them. My friends got a new table for Christmas, and i nabbed the thick metal leg of her old one to use as a former to make these bangles like i had seen on pinterest  :-) the needles are aluminium, but the thicker 7mm needles were still really difficult to bend smoothly (i think i will ask the crew at work if they can even out the kinks for me)

I suffer from occasional bouts of depression, which are sometimes worse in the winter months. To help combat that and transform thouse months into something better, i decided to derate for Christmas this year for the first time (since i am away for Christmas say itself, and work lots of extra hours in the weeks around it, i have never bothered before).
I also wanted to help myself remember good times, to help my tenancy to focus on bad memories, so i collected all (3! Christmas with friends, Christmas with family, and my birthday) the champagne corks i popped this festive season and turned them into tree decorations to go up every year. I added a hand stained tag to say what the occasion was and who i celebrated with to each cork, along with a hanging loop, cut a slit to insert a coin (a tradition here for good luck, usually at weddings, but i figured what the hell, i don't need to get married to claim a bit of luck for myself!)
I intend on contributing to do this with every champage cork i pop in years to come too

I'm likely to be tempted! Either 1a or 2b for preference as I'm not really into Valentine's stuff.
If i can find the right partner I'd definitely be up for taking on an awesome big project...

NEWT Subject: SoAR
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Knitting & Embroidery Pattern Books
Brief Description:
Both knitting and embroidery (particularly cross stitch) use complex charts, which can even be handed through generations of crafters. I will be making books to house my own charts as well as those I have inherited from my grandma & nan.

I will make two books (one each for knitting and embroidery) which in fact will be more like folders, as they will contain plastic wallets so that patterns can be removed easily. I will be using the japanese stab stitch binding method as this allows extra 'pages' (plastic wallets) to be added after the book is finished to allow my pattern collections to expand.

For each book, I will be making:
- Decorated Hard Front Cover
- Decorated Hard Back Cover
- A number of decorated dividers to allow different pattern types to be easily located
as well as sorting patterns into useful groups, collating all the wallets and binding everything together.

Once I have decided on groupings, i will post a list here of what dividers are needed to keep track of my progress

This is a craft that will be difficult to do 'on the go' (which is how I do most of may crafting) but will require longer dedicated time slots at a craft table!

You tykes/blokes in the UK are lots of fun.  Grin
I think you might be confusing your brit slang there Grin tykes are kids (like pre-teens, but mostly used for toddlers)

challenge: bean - blueberry pie
House; Ravenclaw
This challenge inspired me to but done fabric from a company I've admitted for a while, London cloth, who use a Victorian loom to weave on! This is a knitting needle roll, a gift for my secret Santa at work since i was buying for one of the boys i taught to knit!

My cousin is going to a Christmas food themed fancy dress party, and had seen at an artisan craft market these felt mince pie fasinators, but they only had child size head band ones so i agreed to masked her one on a clip, and in return she is donating the 'cost' (ie what they were being sold for at the market) to the end of life hostel where our nan lived

When rattus rattus read the Nepal prompt, he decided he wanted to go there... Except it is all mountains and he isn't very good at climbing! So he wanted to practice by climbing the Christmas tree, and i told him he was only allowed to if he played the role of tree fairy while he wad up there! he agreed, so i massed him a crown and pair of wings to wear...

A diy smash book - a pre brought book to which i added a pocket stuffed with supplies.

This is why i thought he would like a smashbook) to make a few starter pages (with photos i printed) to get him going

P.S.  noodle-bug, be grateful that there is an ocean between us, otherwise you might have to guard your ornaments more carefully from burgling Jennies.
Ha, well while you were stealing mine, guess were if be 'borrowing' from?

Well the circuit boards aren't really that heavy, even the bigger ones. I guess those out of older machines with bigger resistors would weigh more.
But i would advise using stiff cover notebooks, not soft, since obviously the circuit boards are stiff and would pull awkwardly on a soft cover when you opened the book.
