I promised to sum up the end of the Winter 2016 festivities over at the Hogwarts Knitting and Crochet Cup, and my goal was to Craft All The Things — that is, something for each and every prompt.
My previous posts covered all my classes (and when I remembered, Detention!).
Now to the heavy hitters, like my multi-month projects...
OWL Exam - Astronomy (Option 3) - Pattern Writing (200 points)
I designed and wrote patterns for two bags, one of which has already been published here as the Reversible Minecraft Monster Bag.
And now, for the first time ever, I am pleased to present a Through the Keyhole Exclusive Pattern:
A Customizeable Minecraft Bag!

This pattern is fanart, please use it as such and don't violate the Mojang and Microsoft guidelines.
And my shiny new Astronomy OWL badge:
Order of the Phoenix Mission/BROOM (100 points)
I proposed to vanish at least 1,000 yards of yarn in the making of foot-warmers (and at least one pair had to be socks!). I made 4 pairs of various things:
The ruffled booties are for sale in my Etsy store as of this post!
This marks my third term of successful Double Advanced Studies!
Taking into account my Quidditch total from the last post, I earned 134 points for all rounds.
Headmistress' Challenge - 2 parts
First: Make Her a Drink
Second: Help Shovel the Walk
A fine morning to you, Headmistress!
As you can see, I have crafted this excellent Muggle hat for shoveling the walk today. The Muggles call it a ‘sun hat’ which I thought was ever so clever—you see, if you bring a lawn chair and a fishing pole and something called a ‘cooler’ with you, you can simply sit down anywhere with this hat on and the sun will just come out!
I think this is brilliant, Headmistress. The benefit of melting the snow while you sit and fiddle with this fishing pole contraption? Priceless!
Although…I do wonder what Muggles do with these poles. Likewise the cooler…I was supposed to fill it with ice, I think. And some strange kind of ‘beer’ but all we had was butter beer and of course the beverage prompt was last month so I thought I could do without that bit…
But the sun-summoning hat! Yes, I think it will work quite nicely, don’t you?
…what do you mean ‘keep the sun out of my eyes’? Sun hats are supposed to summon the sun so it will melt the snow and I won’t have to shovel at all.
Well, nargles. Guess I better fetch a shovel.
Total points achieved = 32 points.
And then of course there were the classes. January = 164 points, February = 178 points, and March = 183 points. Total: 525 points.
Grand Total: 991 points to Hufflepuff!
So, I didn't make it to 1,000 points as I did in my past two terms...but I DID Do All The Things.
Ravenclaw again took the House Cup, but...
We took back the Quidditch Cup!
All in all, a fabulous term!
Now I am at the end of the middle month of my fourth term (Spring 2016) and I can't wait to share all the new projects and patterns and things I've discovered along the way!
Stay tuned, and craft on!
