Super cool
774  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Beehive tea cozy on: May 08, 2015 10:04:43 AM

I just love this pattern, it's a super easy knit and really cute :-) I've made 3 now!
I hate sewing up, so I make it in one piece, doing the top part on dpns. I also don't have the bottom joined under the hole for the handle, I add a big button and a loop instead - with it joined up it had to be stretched to go over the handle so I wanted to avoid that.
It's a free pattern - http://www.yarnspirations.com/patterns/beehive-tea-cozy.html

I use Debbie bliss luxury tweed Aran yarn, about a ball and a third for a regular 4 cup size teapot. I don't make the knitted bee from the pattern, I add bee shaped buttons and these fabric brooches instead :-)

How cute ate the twins??!! Did you guys enjoy free comic book day? I got to the shop to late and they were out (and they had had samples from the new hark a vagrant book that I missed out on... Sob!) but  it was a great atmosphere in the store, much more boisterous than usual :-D

Subject; astronomy
House; ravenclaw
Project; quilt flimsy
It's super cute, right? I'm so proud of Tom! I made up about half the squares with him, but then I went on ironing & pinning duty (plus a hefty dose of advisory and showing on scrap fabrics); he planned out the details of layout and sewed all the rows then the final thing. I'm so proud that he did a great job and stuck with it!

And by my count... That's an Owl in every subject :-) :-) (yeah, I'm a nerd, big surprise!)

OWL PROPOSAL (of course!)
Subject HoM option 2
There are 3 quilt stages left, represented by 3 hp characters...
 - adding a layer of washing and baking fabric. The back is harry, of course, the backbone of the story. The wadding is Ron; he adds softness and comfort with his humor and family ties
 - adding the binding, representing Hermione, who's organisational skills give nice tidy edges, and who is often important for holding the other two characters together!
- also, unseen but vital to hold everything in place, the tieing together of the layers - the one and only j.k.rowling!

Class; apparition
House; ravenclaw
Project; another beehive tea cozy...

It holds onto the teapot, which holds onto tea :-)

Great work guys!

JKieviet, don't forget that today is the deadline for the April challenge, so you'll need to get that picture added in before midnight (just a gentle reminder in car you had missed mistress Jennie's post recently about this :-) )

hey, Mistress Jennie, what do you want us to about alphabetising NEWT & OWL submissions when we post them ? Because.....

NEWT submission...
subject; Divination
house: ravenclaw
a simple stocking stitch blanket, knitted (mostly) in 3 stripes then sewn up (mostly becasue there's one bit where two stripes amalgamate into one wider block of the same colour, so I knitted both stripes to that point and then joined them, then knit that last block as if they were one fat stripe)

plus, in lew of attached I-cord, a pile of unattached which I turned into a coaster to match the beehive teacozy I made my mum...

Annnnnnnnnd the now inevitable
Subject: DADA
house: ravenclaw
Project: Board Game bag
My cousin's partner love board games (as do my cousin & I, we embrace our inner nerd) , and goes off to his weekly 'meet' (aka down the pub with his friends) with a game all wrapped up in plastic bags to protect it from rain. So Cousin & I have decided that I will make him a special carry case for his birthday - to defend his games against rain & wear/tear damage, a sort of padded waterproof envelope. I'll draft a pattern & make it - I have a couple of ideas but that's the extent of it so far - and I have a month before I need to get it in the post to be with him in time!

780  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Stripy Noro Knee Socks... on: April 23, 2015 10:38:38 AM

I made these for my partner in the be awesome swap because I saw some of my other socks on her Pinterest :-) this was my first go at socks knitted on needles (I've only used a loom before) and I really liked it. I like how it's simple & small enough to do on the train, but the changing colours keep it fun.
I used two different noro colourways, from the tayio 4ply range, and this patternhttp://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/spring-socks
Though I made a few changes; simple ribbed top (instead of the enclosed elastic top it calls for) and I did 3 rows per stripe (not 4). Also, on the second sock I spaced out the reductions a little as I found it got a bit bunched on the first sock.

I'm really pleased with how they came out, and most important I think my partner (the fabulous and naturally awesome pottermouth - photo credits to her) likes them

Thanks for looking!
