I think I've decided on my NEWT; it is something I have bought all the supplies for but never got around to making (mostly because I usually avoid projects that require joining....I procrastinate like crazy when joining squares.  This NEWT will definitely be good motivation to get it done).

NEWT Subject: Muggle Studies
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: La Push Blanket
Brief Description: I shall be demonstrating my detailed knowledge of muggles through one of their most beloved motion pictures movies, "Twilight".  I have successfully infiltrated their ranks without detection for each installment of this series.  And to celebrate my success, I will be crocheting up a La Push Blanket.  I will be using a pattern on Ravelry by Amanda Lewis; I will be adapting this pattern to represent the colors shown in the film.  The yarn I will use is Caron Forest Green, Pale Green, and White.

Pinkleo I love that blanket!

And I love all the tiny little things! Plus, anyone who can knit more than one line get's an A+ in my book Wink (I am the worlds slowest knitter.....)

OWL Subject & Option(if available): Charms
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Geminio Charm Cookbook
Brief Description:
My best friend just got married this year and I have two other friends who have gotten married within the last year and a half. None of them have done much cooking prior to marriage and I totally remember what that felt like. So, for my OWL, I propose to make three separate cookbooks with the same recipes in it of ones that my family and I love. I will be writing all of the recipes by hand on 3 x 5 cards (I dont own a printer) and plan on having at least 50 recipes in each cookbook. There is no way I woul have these done before Christmas as it will take at least 3 weeks to do, even if I copied 3 recipes per book a day. Luckily, two of the recipients birthdays are in the beginning of February and the third will just receive a happy surprise in the mail.  Wink

Wow Audania, such a nice thing to do! I remember how much work it was to make my friend a personal cookbook. Shes originally from Ukraine and when her entire family was granted Belgian citizenship, I compiled a cookbook full of recipes for local cuisine, including comments for occasions / how we liked it. I absolutely can't stomach hutsepot myself for example, but it's a traditional dish, so I did include it. It was so much work, especially since my handwriting isn't all that beautiful and keeping it neat and tidy was a big effort on its own.

Welcome, FreakieGeekie! Beautifully executed shrinking solution, I can tell somebody will be currying favor with Snape and Slughorn.

My Charms homework is coming along slowly but steadily, I'm knitting a striped scarf (maroon and black) for my boyfriend. Sixty stitches wide, ribbed pattern (3knit3purlx10) on circular needles because they're much more portable. This is my second knitting project, and the first one where I'll actually be doing my stitches correctly. My first project, I apparently did a garter stitch with twisted knit stitches XD I'm getting some routine now, the pace is picking up, but I have definitely been confunded and there are some slight errors in my work. I'm at 17cm so far, so that's what, about a tenth of the final length?

I'm actually wondering if I shouldn't drop my Potions owl (my fianc and I can't really agree on my bouquet, so it's on hold) and turn this scarf into a Charms OWL. I've already been knitting for 2 weeks now to get those first 17 centimeters. So it's definitely a long time engagement for this knitting newbie.

Good for you Naantje! A scarf is a huge undertaking for a new knitter. It's a massive test of patience. I've been knitting for three or four years now and am just working on my first scarf and it's taking forever!! I believe in you and hope you're enjoying your new craft!

Huzzah for the Gryffindor Quidditch Captain ...nice to see the lions keeping up their quidditch skills during the winter. Cool

@Audania1 ~*OWL approved*~ Such a thoughtful OWL!  I'm sending my denoted copy of Charm Your Cheese.  If your friends happen to be muggle, I'm sure you can adapt them to muggle cheeses easily.  Sending you blessings of luck!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: December Challenge

Project Name: NBC Gift Set
Project Page Link (if available): Zero pattern
Brief Description: Finally finished Zero and a wee Jack hat for a baby shower gift. (the baby isn't even born so I am ahead for a change!) The baby shower is Nightmare Before Christmas themed so I figure these should do.
As it has looked for a month  Undecided:

Challenge: Geminio
House: Slytherin
Project Name: TARDIS paper towel cover
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=417525.0
Brief Description:
For this project - which I had also intended for the Apparition assignment in the fall semester, but realised I couldn't do that because I wanted it do be a part of this month's craft challenge - I duplicated the TARDIS (also known as: sexy, but only when we're alone) This example is made from plastic canvas and yarn, and since it's bigger on the inside, it can hold a near-endless supply of paper towels.
Disclaimer: Paper-towel supply is not, in fact, endless, but this cover will fit a full size roll of paper towels, which should last a decent amount of time for those not very accident prone.
Project Picture:


I've contacted the OWL examiners about dropping out for my Potions OWL, so here is my new, official proposal:

OWL Subject & Option(if available): Charms - Confundus
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Striped Boyfriend Scarf
Brief Description: I will take maroon and black yarn and knit my boyfriend a ribbed, striped scarf. For a newbie knitter, performing each stitch (knit/purl) with the right technique, as well as working the right pattern and making colour changes still confuses the heck out of me. Working this project will demistify knitting to me Smiley
