A Whole Lotta Knitting and Crochet going on...

So I've been quite busy lately and not just with my classes. But with my Harry Potter Knitting/Crochet House Cup (ravelry link) this group is great at getting people (read me)to get projects done.
Currently I'm working on my Charms Homework. it's due Sunday so I'm almost done. and cutting it close if you ask me.

You already saw my DADA homework (the water cuffs) a couple of posts ago.

A friend of mine is having a baby so I made this cute little dragon rattle and turned it in for my Ancient Runes homework. We had to do something with letters or based on a fairy tale. So this dragon is sorta based on the Dragon of the North fairy tale. But I seriously think dragons have a bad rep in fairy tales of old.

I also made a baby mandrake root for Herbology. I have a cute story about it over at Ravelry. Plus my girls posed for me so that I could snap this photo. it's pretty funny!

For Arithmancy we were doing the Fibonacci sequence so I made a Fibonacci cable hat. I cabled the number sequence around 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8 , 13 (that's all the cables I could do on the hat) it's to replace the hat attack had my oldest lost this past year. my youngest daughter snapped this photo for me.

For muggle studies we were looking into that "television thing" those muggles are so fond of. I made a totoro. B/c my girls just love that movie. (i like it too!) The small one. of course the girls now want a big blue one and the grey one.. we'll see. maybe for Christmas next year.

During all of these homework assignments I also started Sock
wars and finished my socks and "killed off" my target and received my SIP's and I've "kinda" been working on them but really I've been sewing and working on my Charms homework. It's funny how much the HPHC has taken over my life. (but in a good way!)
Well I'm off to knit...

That's such a great idea. Too bad all homework couldn't be nice and relaxing.
