It is September 1st, which means young witches and wizards are setting forth from Platform 9 3/4 on their journey to Hogwarts for the start of the new school year.  Our Crafty Witches have chosen this occasion to inspire their September Craft Along, which involves crafting your very own Hogwarts House Scarf.  Join in with your fellow crafters for this project which can show your creative crafting skills, as well as your House pride.  Tutorials for both knitting and crotchet projects representing each House are available right here, as are videos on the knitting technique.  Join in the fun and discussion with your fellow crafters in the Leaky Lounge, and be sure to post pictures of your completed works over in this thread.

Happy Crafting!

squee I love the Leaky Crafts and the Craft Alongs. The Crafty Witches and Wizard are awesome. I still havent figured out how to knit despite the tutorials in the Crafty forums so, I might try to think of some other way of making a scarf.

I’ve been learning to knit lately so i’m gonna attempt to make a scarf…i’m still really slow though so i’ll probably only be able to wear it the winter after next haha.
Moose_Starr don’t give up. Once you get the hang of it it’s really easy you just have to learn how to speed up :D

Coincidentally someone is knitting a ravenclaw scarf for me with the POA pattern in silver and blue (I know they’re not the bookcolours but I like the colour combination). I don’t have the time to knit unfortunately and it doesn’t look very easy. But interested to see what others are crafting.

Guess That Book

Nothing would ever deflect Professor Binns from plowing on through his notes on goblin rebellions -- as Binns hadn't let his own death stand in the way of continuing to teach, they supposed a small thing like Christmas wasn't going to put him off.
