This is a guest post from my wife Meagan, I hope to have her start contributing articles from time to time on some of the awesome meals we make and also on some of the projects she works on. Enjoy!
I am a member of the Harry Potter Knitting/Crocheting House Cup (HPKCHC) group on Ravelry, an online knitting and crocheting community. As part of HPKCHC, you are Sorted into a House (I’m in Gryffindor) where you are challenged to complete various class assignments to gain points for your House. Classes might include Herbology, Charms, Flying, Arithmancy, Potions, Care of Magical Creatures, etc.
One of the most fun parts of this group is that it really challenges to push yourself and your knitting abilities, and also that you can fit nearly any project into any class with a little creativity and of course, a hefty amount of BS. 😉
One class this month was Defense Against the Dark Arts, or DADA. The assignment for that class was “Craft an object that somehow wards off a haunting by the undead.” Of all the many undead candidates, I choose the most obvious threat to everyday life: Zombies.
Here is my completed assignment:
In preparation for the Zombie Apocalypse, I decided to make use of a little-known fact about Zombies: spirals confuse them and make them dizzy! Therefore I decided to make this scarf since its spiraling ringlets are both zombie-repelling and fashionable:
Here is a picture showing me brandishing my scarf at zombies, which will make them very dizzy and confuse them long enough for me to make a hasty escape.
Thanks for reading my guest entry and may your Hallowe’en be both cavity-free and Zombie-free!
