SPEW: comic relief
House: ravenclaw
Project: pink leg warmers
Comic relief (British charity) are asking people to remake an 80s kids dance video to raise sponsorship money: the whole crew at work is going it, we're hoping that having the non-performing staff of a West end show will be funny as high profile so will raise money. I'm knitting leg warmers for some of us - the other knitter on our group donated this fluffy hot pink acrylic, she was given it but hated touching the texture!


Class: DADA
SPEW: comic relief
House: ravenclaw
Project: purple leg warmers
Hopefully our video will help raise awareness for the work comic relief do fighting poverty in the UK and developing world

I own maybe 5 notebooks that I'm saving "for something important"... Meanwhile I keep the local stationery shop in buddies with all the pads I use!! Really should adopt a more Edel-like approach!

Project: reverse linen stitch blanket square
Linen stitch is sooooo slow! This square took about 3 times longer than average!

Patty - what a cool party - I love the make-your-own bookmarks especially!

Jennie - thanks! There were 3 puzzles - a number code based on the digits of e (the same as the stripes on Tom's hat), a complete the quote rhyming couplet, and a Japanese style picross puzzle that revealed a heart when filled in - it was fun, Tom answered then over breakfast in bed Smiley

Project: mac n cheese

Wunderniece stayed with me at the weekend - which is great but she firmly communicated to me that she is the fussiest eater on the planet. I tried to keep most of what we are vegan so we could eat together but since she hates anything with "weird" ingredients or any actual flavor... I gave in and made up a batch of mac & cheese! We shared a salad and she at least tried a little of the mushroom pasts.I had Smiley
I've never actually made cheese sauce before, but I basically just melted 30g of butter, added a pint of milk, then about 400g grated cheese (about 3/4 cheese and 1/4 parmesan). Sprinkled in a little plain flour until it thickened, then poured that over cooked macaroni.  Topped with another handful each of cheddar, parmesan & mozzarella - Baked for about an hour on low to crisp the top Smiley
I must have listened well and created something  entirely tasteless since she ate 2 portions (tom put away a fair bit too, but he'd added some lee n perrins sauce!)

Project: Tom's Valentine
I got Tom a voucher for a date at an escape room game - I decided to make a kind of reverse escape room : a break in (to the card!) - each envelope is opened by a puzzle, and reveals another envelope with another puzzle...

Challenge: headmistress challenge Feb
House: ravenclaw
Project: Peter's Postcard
My best friend Peter just moved house, after 20 odd years living as a 'anti-squatter' (living in an industrial space very cheaply because the owners want up prevent squatters moving in) in this giant old airfield space in the woods - it's now being redeveloped so he's been moved to a town house! He's excited but I think he'll find the adjustment difficult! I whipped him up this little postcard to wish him well

Peter definitely has my allegiance - I met him during what was one of the hardest times in my life, he really helped support me and remains one of those few special people who I feel I can turn to whatever happens. We will always always have each other's backs.

Moonflame, what a great idea for circular needle storage! Pinning it Smiley though your comment about needle sizes confused the hell out of me until I realised you're using American sizes!! (We mostly use metric here)

Ok, first submission of the term!
Class: astronomy
House: ravenclaw
Project: 3 blanket squares
Using the Lang yarn left over from making Antbee's table runner (combined with some neutral coloured yarn to bulk up the weight) I made these 3 blanket squares in garter stitch, dots stitch, and 2x2 basket weave

With these last submissions, I've finished every challenge and class of the semester! *mini fist pump!

Challenge: flop - corner shop
House: ravenclaw
Project: Edie's mermaid tail
For my cousins little girl - I'd forgotten how tiny she is, I knitted this one size smaller than her age (she's 6, this is to fit 4/5 years) but it's still giant! So it'll last her lots of lovely lazy evenings in snuggled in!
I was trying something with the tail colours, I don't like it so I'll go back to the old method if I make anymore!


Challenge: magical me
House: ravenclaw
Project: blanket squares!
More blanket squares, made of left over mermaid tail yarn
These will eventually be made into a blanket that'll be all for me!

Clockwise from top left: whelk stitch, plaid stitch & reverse plaid stitch, diagonal ridge stitch, bamboo stitch, reverse broken rib
