I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Yay, first day of school! It only seems fitting to begin with Detention. I've got to go through the WIPs and UFOs and finish something. The classes look challenging and I am pretty eager to begin. Great job making school so great, Headmistresses! Or is it Headmistressi?

OWL Subject: Transfiguration, Option 1
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: My Very Own Invisibility Cloak
Brief Description: For my Transfiguration OWL, I shall be crocheting up my own Invisibility Cloak. The pattern I will be using is the Guadalupe Wrap by Doris Chan. This wrap calls for a large amount of yardage, 1726 yards of yarn.  I have attempted to gather enough yarn for this cloak, but I do have extra skeins just in case. My plan of action is work around & around as described in the pattern until done, fight drowsiness through repetitive stitch bits with copious amounts of tea and coffee, and celebrate with a muggle margarita when done. My skills in divination has me foreseeing that the extended double crochet stitch within this pattern, which I messed up on almost every time during swatching, will cause me to cast the Ripping Spell over and over.  I plan on finishing this during this semester; fingers crossed!

My swatches never come out; my mantra, the swatch is a lie.

I will meet the first years at the doors and lead them to the welcoming feast.

"Hello, and welcome to your first year at Hogwarts. I would like for you to get to know each other well, as you will be sharing your classes and rooms for the next 7 years. In a few moments you will come into the Great Hall and be sorted. Those in your house will be as your family for your time here, but remember that all of the students here are your friends. Please come to me or any of the staff with any questions you have, and above all else, have a good time!"

Hiya all, I'm back for year 2 in Hufflepuff - hoping to complete this semester with slightly higher marks than the summer semester! Off to sit in the library and do some class planning!  Smiley

Note from the Deputy Headmistress:  I have blacked out the text for my OWL proposal, because it is being made for our lovely Headmistress in the Back to Hogwarts Swap.  Anyone who wishes to read the text below, can do so by highlighting it.  I'm sure pinkleo is going to be a good girl and not peek and spoil her surprise!

OWL Subject & Option: Potions, Option 1
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Gryffindor Striped Afghan

Brief Description: I will be crocheting the Cozy "Man-ghan" by Kim Guzman in Gryffindor House colors of Red, Gold, and Black, as pinkleo's Large gift for the Back to Hogwarts 3 Swap.  I would like to post the pattern link, but links show up in bright blue, thereby giving away the surprise to pinkleo.  You can go to caron dot com, and search for the pattern by name.  The yarn is Caron Simply Soft in Garnet, Autumn Maize & Black.  I plan to finish this by October 8th, so it can be sent out in the Back to Hogwarts Swap by October 10th.
