Class Ideas for March 2011 for Charms and DADA

Hey guys!  Here are some ideas for these two classes.  Most of it is straight forward but for the anger Umbridge option in DADA I figured unauthorized magic, animals, or anything dealing irreverently with the Wizarding world would tick her off so that's what I chose.

DADA: scarf/cowl, new technique, or anger Umbridge 

Anger Umbridge 
Pocket animals (mouse, rabbit, raccoon, or robin
Penguin amigurmi 
Harry Potter time turner (unlimited amount of time to annoy her) 
Pocket potter puppet pals (kids and adults
Pygmy Puff

But you're caught up now... so go forth and knit.

Quidditch Ideas - What? Socks!

What about feet? You can make socks for charity, no problem, but can you do it in a month? If you can, I want to see pictures! With that said, here are some very cool free patterns.

Knit Socks:

  • Monkey are cool in stripes, solids, or variegates!
  • Skew turns Gryff stripes into the socks at left!  Cooh, right?
  • Hedera are lovely in any yarn, and it's an easy-peasy lace repeat!
  • Thuja uses a heavier yarn for fast and warm results.
  • I know from personal experience that Sunday Swing Socks are elegant and easily memorizable.
  • I'm sure our favorite heroine would approve of Hermione's Everyday Socks!
  • The Leyburn Socks are gorgeous.
  • I love the Froot Loop pattern!
  • The Yarn Harlot's Earl Grey pattern is classically elegant.
  • Don't you think Dumbledore would approve of the Fawkes pattern?

And for my fellow crocheters:

That's it for this round!  Until next time:
