Hi sammy
I'm really sorry, but careers are only open to 'alumni' students; that is, people who have already completed 7 terms in the HPC (you'll become an alumni in your 8th term... this is your 4th term so you're half way there!)

Also just so everyone is clear, the pathway requirements are filled out as we go; not using previously completed projects. So, for example, fibrealchimist became an alumni last term; her career pathway requirements will all date from then onwards.

Owl proposal...

Subject: DADA option 2
House: ravenclaw
we are told how professor Umbridge always wears a hair bow, and what a terrible fashion choice it is. well, I am inspired to prove that hair accessories can be turned to the good. I  will me knitting a hair wrap.
The pattern is entralac, which is very complicated compared to anything I've done before, and includes a few skills I haven't used yet (eg the make one increasing technique, picking up stitches from the side). It is also using normal weight wool (as compared to the chunky wool I tend towards!) so all in all, I hope to finish in 4-5 weeks (this includes lots of unpicking and re-knitting time, as i anticipate mistakes!) Cheesy the key to this project will be in not giving up!

Congrats on graduating ladybugs

Well, to my mind, sashkio is about moving the fabric rather than the needle - and so making multiple stitches at once. I aim to get stitches the same lenght, and placed exactly where i want. Ideally i'd like my stitches smaller too :-)
There are traditional patterns, thread, fabric etc too, though, that are interesting to look at; i don't really use them in any formal way, but i this the general guidelines about stitch placement (eg at corners, or where lines meet) are good, they're aesthetically pleasing to my eye anyhow :-)
The results aren't really identical to running stitch, i was sort of simplifying to explain that i sometimes 'cheat' by doing normal sewing akin to running stitch. I hope you see what i mean!

I like the ghost letters all piled up at the top & bottom :-)

I had some left over thread and fabric from my thanks postcard, so i decided to practice my basic sashkio stitching as I'm not very good at it (on big projects i sometimes revert to just running stitch as it looks the same - but here where there's no project at stake i can play without worrying.) it came out ok (or ok enough, anyway - the stitches are still odd lengths!) so i covered another postcard

Moonflame - i print own paper templates, on the back of scrap paper (old homework sheets, etc). You can get templates online , where you put in the size you want and it creates a download to print - i just googled 'hexagon template printable'. Different layouts on the paper are easier to  cut depending if you will use scissors or a rotor cutter so have a look around the interwebs  :-)

Of course i want to meet up naantje! That would be great :-)
Definitely get the audio-guide around the hp studios; there's loads of extra info in them, as well as maps so you don't miss anything (it's like a little handheld screen with headphones) and loads of pictures etc that are cool to look through while you que at the entrance

I don't really have a plan for the hexies yet... Well, sort of a vague one, but at the mo i've got a couple of projects on so I'm just collecting hexies without really thinking it through yet.

This origami fortune tell is an omen of cool things to come; it's filled with places my friends and i want to visit around town this summer, to help overcome our indecisiveness on any given day.
Actually, i had to make 2, to fit all our planned expeditions in!

I have a really distinct memory of my grandma teaching me to chain stitch when i was doing some lettering on a book cover (to earn my needlecraft badge at Brownies)
This fabric covered postcard features chain-stitched lettering in her memory
