So today was a slow day at work. I had time to get some crocheting done. I decided to use the time to finish two more projects for the Ravelry.com - HPKCHC class projects.
This is for Flying November 2015 - It is a magic flying carpet to take me to the TriWizard Tournament. (a dishcloth in muggle life)
After I had finished the "flying carpet" I still had a bit of yarn left.
So - on to the next class which is Defense Against Dark Arts November 2015. The assignment was to practice the "kill" spell. You could either "kill" acrylic (which is a method of blocking acrylic, which is different then blocking wool or natural fibers). OR you could "Kill" some leftover yarn. I chose to kill the yarn leftover from my Flying assignment.
So now I have two new dishcloths. Pretty aren't they?
Several years ago, in 2009 and 2010, I participated in the Harry Potter Knit & Crochet House Cup on Ravelry.com. I really enjoyed it and recently went back on Ravelry to see if it was still going strong. It IS still going on, and has grown quite a bit since I was last there. I think it would be fun to get back into the swing of things, and so in order to have a better chance to be sorted into a house for the next term, which begins in January, I need to submit photos for classes this month. So, for my first class, Detention November 2015 - I'm submitting these mittens.
Detention is a class for finishing of WIPS (or projects started before the current class and finished in the month of the current class). These mittens are a part of a set that I'm making .. scarf, mittens, and hat.
The scarf is finished, the mittens are now finished, and I will make the hat for another of the classes in the HPKCHC this month.
