Aw,Noodle I love those hats!
Yours came out great!

As for me, I'm working on a Hufflepuff scarf for my husband- 31,920 stitches in total! It's gonna take a lot of tea to get through this one! At least I live in a region where Mother Nature is supporting the sanctity of craft time- New Snow England!

Seriously, Massachusetts (according to the governor tonight) has had 60 inches of snow in about 2 weeks and is expecting another 10-24 inches tonight through Tuesday! Galloping Gargoyles that is a lot of snow!  Maybe my next project should be a craft room  made of snow and ice! (omg that would be so cool!) *Wanders off to plot a Craft-gloo while burning her wrists up on hubby's Hufflescarf.*

Thank you, Headmistress, for all that you do to keep the magic vibrant on this board! You're fantastic!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Charms
Project Name: Bonny wee Bonnet
Brief Description: This little bonnet is a companion to the sweater I made ages ago. It was going to be my Cheese Bean and then I missed the deadline to post it so it is now my "Something that keeps you warm" for Charms homework.

And, for your amusement, here is the sweater on its new (unintended) recipient...

Everybody has been doing such great stuff!  I'm finally out of the holiday daze that retail management can induce and am getting back to my personal routine. Today is my birthday and I took the day off to refocus my daily schedule and lay a plan for living the life I want to live this year. And of course that means regular visits to the HPC and craft time to unwind after a long day at the mall!

Here are some things I have been working on this semester between bouts of retail ... delights:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: December Detention
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Weasely sweater ornaments (Approx 3 1/2" long)
Brief Description: These are knitted sweater ornaments for my boss's family Christmas tree. I also made the tiny hangers from jewelry wire.
Project Picture:

Class: Flying
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Reducio Sweaters
Description: During my weekly stichnbitch with Molly and Hagrid I was working up some matching sweaters for the inventory team of my store (Cuz if inventory ain't happy ain't nobody happy!) Molly suggested that 3 unrelated grown witches and wizards probably don't want to dress alike at the office and convinced me to reducio them into tiny sweater ornaments. They also had hangers (not shown in the pic.)

They were shipped via Owl and Muggle Post from Boston to Chicago. Here the are ready to fly:

Class: SoAR
House: Slytherin
Project: Turkey Sausage and Kale Soup
Description: To help keep us healthy during the New England Winter We turn to Soup. This soup I found as a pin on Pinterest and is my first attempt at making soup from (nearly) scratch. I did buy the broth but a more experienced Kitchen Witch could make her own. As I'm not sure of copyright issues here is the link to the recipe:
It's simple: Sausage, Kale, beans, broth and a smidge of seasoning. Despite my near garlic catastrophe (a garlicastrophe, if you will) (Siri- quick! The meat is nearly browned- What is a CLOVE of garlic?!? Is it one lumpy part or the whole thing? WHICH IS IT, SIRI!!) it was actually a success!

On the stove:

Ready to serve:

I'm excited to see what you all come up with! I was a few hours late to the sign up deadline so I'm just an observer this time around- but I love the HP goodness and am cheering your craftiness on!

Such fabulousness! I love it all!

And now, with apologies to Chughes225 for the delay here is the wonderful package she sent to me. I was delayed in receiving and posting due to RL shenanigans involving boring things like work and moving- oh what I wouldn't give for a time turner and the Locomotor charm right about now!

I received such an excellent package!

A tote from the leaky cauldron (stenciled so well it could be sold at the shops in universal!),Mrs. Weasely's sweater knitting needles, a slytherin crochet hook, and a faux stained glass Slytherin crest!

It's all beautiful!

And then there were extras! Slythee color yarns (me LOVES yarn!!!) (That's my cookie monster version of myself... haha... I am SO tired!) and CANDY!! There were jelly slugs and a chocolate frog- I got a HAGRID card!!!

Enough talk... Look!

Thank you!!!

I received my package! I was tortured knowing that it was at my house Friday morning and I wasn't going to be back until Sunday night! It was so worth the wait! I'll have pictures tonight on the gallery, I'm in the process of moving so I have to find a laptop first. Ha!

Alright I'll admit it now. I'm in. I'd like to think that I would be responsible and not sign up for another swap during the holidays while working in retail in a mall, but I'm not. I'm totally in, you vixen.
