I'm finally turning in my Potions OWL!
OWL Subject & Option (if available): Potions: Option 1- Show off your ability to work with many ingredients by showcasing at least 3 different colors/pattern/textures. Colors can be monochromatic. A variegated yarn or one fabric swatch with various colors within it count as one color.
Project Name: Plummy Mozetta
Project Page Link (if available): THIS LOVELY PATTERN
Brief Description: I originally intended this to be a poison green mozetta. I had some lovely variegated yarn tp use, and started knitting it up, but when I got about 6 or 7 inches in (which was quite a lot of knitting!) I could see that the way the yarn was striping didn't let itself well to such a classic design, so I jumped ship to a lovely plum yarn instead. There are 4 different textures in the pattern - a ribbed bottom, stockinette body and hood base, a moss stitch edging, and a decorative lace motif around the hood.
Project Picture: I won't lie about my love/hate relationship with Snape. Sometimes while I was supposed to be working away in the dungeon, I'd find myself staring dreamily at his profile, only to have him catch me in the act and make some sort of biting comment.
Needless to say, there was a fair amount of tinking (backwards knitting to fix mistakes) involved in this OWL. Snape finally threatened to fail me if I didn't get my act together, so I put my nose to the grindstone, and, I'll admit, did a little wandwork to finish things up. I'm very happy with how it came out. I've already worn it out and about, and it's VERY warm! I need to find a complimentary ribbon to weave into the holes in the neck (the holes are there for that purpose) but I'm having trouble deciding on a colour. Cream? Plum? Black? I actually really like it without the ribbon, too.

Challenge: New Year's Challenge
Project Name: 1,000 Things Challenge Clipboard
Project Description: This year I'm simplifying my life, and getting rid of at least 1,000 things. I'm not counting things I throw away unless they're items I've decided to give away and they turn out to be too junky to donate. I decorated this clipboard to keep my list on, and I downloaded this adorable calender
to help me keep track of my minimums, too (at least 20 things per week.) Ideally, I'd like to accomplish this in much less than a year, but I figured I'd set myself a goal that was definitely attainable, and try to beat the clock for extra satisfaction.
