I enjoyed pillars of the earth - really easy pageturner reading and dynamic characters. And what a cute little rat house :-)

Hmm... That is fairly big... But I'd be interested - it would just depend on my craft schedule when the swap happens

OT...
I've been reading hp in French in an effort to stretch my language skills... And tonight i came across this


Yep. They changed Voldemort's middle name to Elvis.

Of course i checked book 6 too... there we meet Elvis Marvolo Gaunt, who prefers to go by his middle name.

Went to my nearby Oxfam shop to find a book for seeuudee. In the end I got none for her but three for me.  Roll Eyes Something went kinda wrong there...

Yep, done that!!

Ah, so flattered to be one of the WotWs *high five ladies*. there are so many great projects here, and I love that we all have different specialities, we come at our crafts with different skills and ideas - it's really inspiring

Challenge: Bean - Coffee
House : ravenclaw
Project: art journal
This is for a swap partner - I noticed she had a lot  of book page art on her pinterst, so I made a journal of book pages for her to draw on and craft with.
The cover is a crazy quilt of ripped book pages, backed onto thin cotton and hand embroidered, then backed onto another layer of the cotton. It has a wrap around cover and ties up with twine and a button. Both inside and outside cover are then coffee stained to break them down and make them look less shiny-white!
each folio of the book is folder pages from an old proof copy, sew in 'kiss journal' style


~*COMPLETED NEWT *~
NEWT Subject: Charms
House: ravenclaw
Project Name: A very charming jumper
Brief Description:
i knitted a jumper. A  JUMPER.
Given that I'm barely a knitter, I'm super excited that it came out completely jumper shaped - with a neck hole and two arms the same length and everything. So I'm happy to ignore the weird line where I must have picked up the stitches wrong putting them back on my needle after working the back - and the truly atrocious grafting at the shoulders



It's never going to be usable as formal wear - in fact, I'll never wear it out of the house, but I kind of intended it as lounge wear anyway, i don't really wear chunky knits like this except for mooching on the sofa. and - thought it's a bit loose around my middle, it's actually pretty flattering on my boobs (this is a running theme with my clothes; either they fit my boobs but bag on my waist, or they fit my waist and I can't do the zipper up past my braline)  
I learnt SO much working on this!


and thus...

~*NEWT PROPOSAL *~
NEWT Subject: Arithmancy
House: ravenclaw
Project Name: the super-nerd hat
Brief Description: My friend went to a maths lecture a couple of weeks ago, and brought from the lecturer a pattern for a Klein bottle shaped hat with stripes representing the digits of Pi. Since she can't knit... I'm doing it for her.
the patten is charted, and I can't read knitting charts. Plus there are major elements of the hat design we decided we disliked (lots of small stripes in a rib stitch? looks messy. Also the fit on the hat was a bit too tight, we want to make it slouchier). So, I will be working out what the original pattern says, then adapting it (I've never made any changes to a knitting pattern before), and then hoping what I make come s out still hat shaped.
The klein bottle shape poses problems as it means the hat is two layers, but both of them are the front (and back) at different points. so that should be fun to work out, given that I'll be using stocking stitch which has a definite front and back.
also, it's in dk wool which is a far cry form the super chunky I'm used to working with.
I'd like to have it finished before our next lecture at the beginning of march.
