ADVANCED STUDIES PROPOSAL ~
**Project Name: Royal Summer Shawl by ELK Studio
**House: Hufflepuff
**Brief Description: I started this project to use up some luscious yarn that my sister-in-law gave me a few Christmases ago. Because the pattern was purchased, I didn’t realize quite how big of a project it would be before starting. It started with chaining 400 stitches! I’m afraid I won’t finish before the semester is over so I’m submitting it as an OWL!

Project Name: Purple Airy Knit Hat

Brief Description: I love lunaria, and while its silvery seed pods are flashier, I love its cheery little purple flowers in the spring. I had a skein of mystery yarn in a warm purple I’ve been longing to use and my hair has been growing out in an…exuberant style. Some days it certainly seems monstrous to me. A simple little purple hat seemed just the thing to banish those bad hair days. Because it’s already getting warm where I live and I didn’t want a tight fit totally squashing my curls, I’ve made the hat floppy and airy in a super simple pattern on giant needles. It’s my first proper hat and I love it. And this is my first post on lettuce so I apologize in advance if I mess this up in some way! Go go Gryffindor!

Class or Challenge Title: Make Your Own Holiday
SPEW or LC Contest: SPCA related, but I’m not sure it counts
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name & Page Link: Foster Kitty Welcome Home Security Blanket
Brief Description: I made this mid-April in anticipation of celebrating the arrival of a new foster kitty after my last one was adopted, but I had to wait until today to put it in use. I’m using this to line a box in an optimal sleeping spot so he’ll have something to soak up his scent and take with him to his new home when the time comes. It may be a while before it actually gets used though, since he’s still pretending to be a burrito under a blanket in his travel crate. Early days!

PrincessP Wonderful watercolor, I have been wanting to learn more about watercolor. I shall have to make use of the link.
Trillian Wonderful blankie, I am jealous I have been wanting to foster a kitty but my local shelters don’t have any available currently. They have had great success getting fosters and adoptions die to Corona.
