Challenge: Bertie Botts: Apple
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Poison Apple
Brief Description: I was inspired by the apple from Snow White and dyed this yarn yo go with it. To me, the apple would not exist or pose a threat without the witch, so I had to incorporate her into it as well.




**I am excited to find a way to participate in the HPC again because dyeing is a Craftster category. I really hope my knitting will become more frequent and I'll be able to participate that way.**

I know this is really old and this is probably a dumb question, but how do you avoid getting a knotted tangled mess? I dyed up 4 skeins after warping, and they're all big twisted messed that take 3 days to unwarp into a ball. It turns out I did my ties wrong (I didn't tie the overlapping bits) would this cause the huge knot?

Class: Defence against the dark arts

Brief Description:
The Hinkypunk is a devilish creature. I have dyed a yarn to mirror the flame thrown by the hinkypunk in hope that it will be scared off by the replica flames.

Class: Care of Magical Creatures
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Orchids & Fairylights
Brief Description: Bowtruckles are known to be tree dwellers. I thought it would be fun to try to attract some to me so I could study them close up. I made this hat, which cabling patterns resemble the trees that bowtruckles live in.

Made from SouthWest Trading Co. Luxury Llama 1.5 skeins.

Class: Transfiguration
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Hopsalots
Brief Description:
I was practicing my transfiguration on a pair of shoes, trying to turn them into rabbits. It kind of worked..


I made these out of Cascade 220 held double on size 8mm needles. I put them through the wash 3 times to felt them down to the proper size and then sewed the ears on. They're a bit floppy but I think they're adorable!

It's a bit late but I wanted to post an update on my OWL. I worked my butt of on it and got this far...

...until I ran out of yarn.
This is all that's left:

Sad Face Sad Hubby let me order some more but I'll have to wait for it to get here before I finish it.

So instead I've been working on my NEWT. I finished the waist decreases on my sweater. I have 1.5" of knitting in pattern then I can start the bust increases. It's actually going quite well.

I've finished another project, but I haven't gotten around to blocking and photographing it yet. Hopefully I'll get that done soon.

I'm loving everyone's projects! That Neville hoop and drawing! I totally need to start my horcrux hunt!

I'm probably too competitive for my own good. Thanks, pinkleo, I'll get my owl finished and then I can get started on the new semester's classes. I'm excited to see them and want to try to finish them all this time!
