Ant Bee- I really love the chair socks! My grandma really needs these for her kitchen table. Currently we have felt pads on the bottoms but after a month they are falling off. We use the dining chairs often, so I must make some. She'll be ecstatic. Did you use a pattern?

They are working out really well, I used the Lily Sugar n Cream cotton and they are very smooth as they move on the floor. I have been thinking of maybe even adding in the felt sticky doo-dad under the sock for heavier chairs (or chairs used by people who might scrape a lot getting up and down in them.)

As usual, I sort of frankensteined from a couple of patterns flavored by my attention span. Here is the main inspiration:

If you are on Pinterest and search "Chair Socks" you'll get this and lots more. I did knit for these, and there are oodles of crochet ones, too.  Some have decoration on them (little buttons and whatnot). There is even a pin that has the foot of the sock shaped like a cat's paw! (That's not a pattern tho, just a thing one could buy from japan.)

Whistlefish- I can't believe how big Luna is! I remember your first pics of her as a teeny tiny thing! Wow! And I also love those coasters. Smiley

I have 2 projects to post!


Class: Alchemy
House: Slytherin for the win!
Project: cord cozy
I don't know if it's the crazy-cold levels my husband likes to keep the A/c set at or what, But I've been crocheting crazy cozies for lots of things in the house- I made 16 chair socks for the diningroom and this little wrap for my phone cord. *(Added benefit: I know if he's absconded with it!)


And the chair socks:
Class: Apparrition
House: Slytherin
Project: Chair socks
"Two or more things that go together." I knitted up 16 chair socks to help protect my (rented) dining room floor from damage from scraping chair legs.




I hope everyone is having a great start to summer!

Well, I worked on my idea for several hours yesterday... I'm at the phase where it will either be cool or someone is on the way from the misuse of magic department to stop me in my tracks! haha! What I'm working on is- oh, hang on, someone's at the door....

oh.

I've pinned oodles of stuff to a secret board as I've been stalking and planning out ideas... Tomorrow I aim to settle into something and give it a go... yay, crafting!

Just when I think she couldn't possibly come up with a new "Must do!" she goes and invokes the Burrow.

I'm in. I'm in like Dobby in a sock shop!

For those of you who might be interested....  There's a new HP Swap open!  

Harry Potter - I Want to Live in the Burrow Swap
Signups: June 3rd-19th, 2016
Send Date: July 11th, 2016

For this swap we will be crafting 1 Medium to Large, Harry Potter inspired houseware item for your partner.  The object can be any size in physical dimensions, but should take a minimum of 2-3 hours, (or more!) of crafting time. Think beyond House Scarves or tee shirts and into the realm of objects to cozy-up your partner's home.  These can be subtle nods to the HP books and movies, or more overtly HP-specific creations.  Check out the swap thread for more inspirational ideas. 

*overhears Mistress's announcement and mutters like an old-school Kreacher, "Seductress of swaps is at it again...Mustn't succumb to temptations... maybe should check it out though.. should be prepared to be strong..."


Congrats to my fellow Slytherins!  I never got any pics loaded up but I've been cheering from the stands this semester. Huzzah!
