Intermediate status update on my OWL:
Still knitting the scarf, I'm somewhere between a third of the way and halfway done. Measuring scarves is strange: I measured it yesterday and it was 80cm long, while I had knit at least another 8 rows from the day before, when I had measured it and it was ... 80cm long! My mother says that it happened because the day before yesterday, I measured straight after I stopped knitting and yesterday I only measured a couple of hours later. The weight of the scarf hanging down from the needles apparently stretches the scarf while you're knitting, and it shrinks again when it's laid flat. Shrinkage is a bit demotivating!

I want to hunt horcuxes!! I want to hunt horcruxes!!

... But I can't until I clean up the craftsplosion that happened in my work/living/everything space. Seriously, I am constantly tracking glitter and yarn bits wherever I go- like a sparklier version of Pig-Pen from the Charlie Brown gang!

So, with all the chores to do I started where one should always start: In the kitchen! With snacks! Yay, milk and cookies!  

Challenge: Holiday Treats
House: Slytherin
Description:  These are the cookies I make for my cousin- Oatmeal Chocolate Chip.  She claims she never finds them in stores so I make them for her at Christmas as part of her gift.  This year I used the Betty Crocker recipe because my original (which probably isn't much different, truth be told) is somewhere packed in "I had to downsize living spaces" boxes and that hunt will also just have to wait. These have a nice crunch to them and the chocolate is smooth in contrast. It is recommended that you try one as soon as it is cool enough to eat, you know, for the purposes of adjusting cooking times... (mmm, cooking times...) and then, on subsequent snackings a nice hot beverage for dipping does add a nice touch.  Here' this year's, found on the Betty Crocker website:

Heat oven to 350F.

1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg 2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 1/2 cups Gold Medal all-purpose or unbleached flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (6 oz)
1 cup chopped nuts, if desired  (I don't desire these, I'm nuts enough as it is!)

In large bowl, stir brown sugar and butter until blended.
Stir in vanilla and egg until light and fluffy.

In another bowl mix together oats, flour, baking soda and salt;
Add the oats mixture to the gooey 1st bowl bit-by-bit (to save your poor arm muscles from falling off.  If you have one of those super-cool standing mixers, well, aren't you the lucky one!)
stir in chocolate chips (and nuts).

Onto ungreased cookie sheet, drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart.

Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. (I put the cookie sheet right onto a wire rack to cool it faster to protect the bottoms from getting overly toasted.)

Last but not least, pour yourself a cuppa or a glass of milk and dig in!

(No one will judge you if you eat these for breakfast, I mean, They ARE oatmeal after all!)

Also,  I must say I'm loving browsing through the thread- it's so fun to see what everyone is doing!  @FreakieGeekie: I'm glad you played through the crafty pain from earlier, your anti-craft curse seems to have broken (knock wood) and you are on a roll now! Maybe make some celebratory cookies for yourself,  Wink )
@Maman- Good luck moving, what a project! Maybe you should make some cookies for strength. Grin)

@Naantje: keep going and don't measure for a while- at least a few sessions or when you think you might be getting close to where you want to end it.  You can do it! (Maybe make some motivational cookies for your next snack break, haha!)

*Dog glares through sudden glitter tornado formed from giggling too close to the mess*

Alright, alright, I'm going... sheesh.

@Ant Bee: Those cookies look tasty! **drools** If I had the supplies, I would definitely make them. Maybe I'll pick up the supplies when I go shopping later this week...

House Pride: House Unity
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Custom HP Inspired Bracelet
Project Page Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=419035.0
Brief Description: This bracelet was a special request from a friend.  She wanted an HP themed bracelet that included specific charms from her favorite moments in the stories.  The charms include lightning bolt, Hedwig, Sorting Hat, Golden Snitch, Phoenix for the Order, Chess Knight for Ron, Hogwarts, Deathly Hallows, Tales of Beadle the Bard, otter for Hermoine's Patronus, Slytherin's Snake, the Goblet of Fire, wolf for Lupin, Moody's magical eye, and a wand.

Project Picture:

Horcrux Hunt: Helga Hufflepuffs Cup
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Hogwarts Stitch Markers for AugustBell
Brief Description: The first Horcrux I've found and destroeyd is Hufflepuff's Cup.  The project is inspired by the brave Hermoine Granger, who destroyed the Horcrux during the Battle of Hogwarts.  Miss Granger is a highly gifted witch, who also works hard to fight for the rights of other magical creatures, including House Elves.  Hermoined famously began the group S.P.E.W. during her 4th year at Hogwarts, in order campaign for the rights of House Elves.  She also actively worked for their freedom by knitting them hats and socks, as presenting a House Elf with clothes is the only way to free it.  In the spirit of her crafty campaign for justice, I created a set of HP themed Stitch Markers!  One set of magical objects, and the other represents the four Hogwarts Houses.

Class: Care of Magical Creatures
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: A Study of Kneazles... via Charms
Project Page Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=419036.0
Brief Description: Recently my husband and I have been considering getting a pet.  DH is particularly fond of Kneazles, but as I am Muggle-born, I did not grow up with Kneazles and therefore knew little about them.  While reading up on them, I noticed that certain characters in stories I heard about while attending Muggle School, display many of the common characteristics of Kneazels!  Could it be that Kneazels have infiltrated the Muggle world?  Or that the creators of these stories are Wizards in disguise?  The first is the character of the Cheshire Cat in Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.  The Cheshire Cat is certainly highly intelligent, as it engages in philosophical debate with Alice.  It also has a distinctly striped fur pattern.  The second example are the characters in a Muggle television show called Doctor Who.  The Sisters of Plenitude, a race of Cat Nuns, who care for the sick on a planet called New Earth.  The Sisters are also extremely intelligent, and can be highly aggressive.  Much more than common house cats.  

In order to study the creatures more in-depth, I reread & rewatched both stories, and out of my studies, I created this magical charm bracelet, to help me remember what I've learned.  The bracelet features charms from both stories, including the White Rabbit, Rose, Bad Wolf, Cake, Red Converse,  Sneaker, Teacup, Angel Wing, Top Hat, Alice, Police Box, Key, Drink Me Bottle - glass, Entwined Hearts, Pistol, Clockwork Lady, Book, Fob Watch, Hope Disk, & a Kneazle disguised as the so-called "Cheshire Cat".

That Tom Riddle diary is too cute. My kids would go bonkers pretending to write in that. Cheesy

Jennie, I'm always amazed at how awesome your charm items are! I adore the stitch markers! I seriously need to get out and make myself some since I always loose those little plastic circle ones and something like yours would be hard to miss.
