Good morning, Gryffs! My sincere apologies for not posting Quaffle 2 earlier, but sometimes life happens! Anyhow, yesterday was the deadline for Quaffle 3, the Animal Crackers Hat. I'm amazed at some of the projects submitted, but before I showcase some AMAZING work, here's the current score!
Unofficial counts indicate that in Match #1, Gryffindor came in 3rd, dropping to 4th in Match #2, and springing back to 3rd for Match #3. My unofficial observation is that we are SO far behind Slytherin and Hufflepuff that we really need to step it up in Match #4 and the Horcrux/Hallows event! (Okay, seriously. Hufflepuff could actually win the Quidditch Cup this term, if they keep at it like they've been doing!) I added up all current unofficial scores: 1st is Hufflepuff, followed by Slytherin, and Gryffindor in 3rd followed by Ravenclaw.
In Quaffle 2, Gryffindor paired off with Hufflepuff to craft illusion discloths or amigurumi. Here are a few of my favorite Quaffles!
m8land came through with an adorable little dragon:
ShaylaMyst made such a tiny dragon! It's quintessentially Gryff. :D
HermioneWeasley swooped in with a nicely done Hallows Illusion Cloth!
Mauri had a great photo of her Snowy Owl!
Green and white were great choices for RayOLR's Illusion Owl cloth.
Hale flew in with an eye-popping Chinese Fireball!
RiverCameron came in with a very Gryffindor Hallows.
I'm in love with CherrySprinkle's little knitting dragon!
Isn't kamilasol's fire-sneezing dragon adorable?
In the 3rd Quaffle Match, we were paired with Ravenclaw and challenged to knit or crochet Ron's Animal Crackers Hat from the movie. Look what a great job everyone did!
m8land's uber-colourful hat caught my attention:
derrickdoll's hat was quite colour correct!
Former Slytherin Jinxsa used only 3 colours and did it brilliantly!
frick's hat was perfect - it could have been used in the movie!
Few people chose to make the crochet version, but StarKnits did, and isn't it amazing?
The Wild Card Round, Quaffle Match #4, is coming up quickly and will start Tuesday the 31st. Have a great weekend, Gryffs, and craft on!
