Not Sure What to Make?

Here are some ideas for little items that you can knit or crochet up quickly for an easy 15 class points!

Ancient Runes

A rune is cast for each student, and then you must match yarn, pattern, etc. to the rune (please see the class listing)!! So I cannot give that many quick and easy suggestions.


Make something light and airy--like lace!


Make something to chase away the Dementors of Depression and Werewolf of Anger. i.e. something to represent calm and serenity in your life.

  • Coffee Mug Cozy - Tea seems to be a theme. A knit coffee cup cozy would fit a teacup as well! 50 yards of yarn.
  • Coffee Cozy - And a similar project in crochet. About 50 yards of yarn.



History of Magic

Make (a) Something for a baby or (b) Something to recognize "The Boy Who Lived."


Make something either fiddly or calming. For calming, please see D.A.D.A. since I think tea would be a good fit for either.

I would like to submit this as the Huff Post Of The Week

Thank you, JMN, for some laughs in DADA!

I could not help but share.

Blogger has some new template design features. What do you think? Is it too orange? :D

What the H.E.C.K.?

Hufflepuff's own Minsue had an idea for an ongoing background story to help talk our projects into a class - the House Elf Crafting Klatch, or HECK for short. The Secretary of HECK, Kell13, has made a companion blog to track the HECK cause. Go check it out!
