I am supposed to be swatching for my O.W.L. project tonight. However, that also means trying my hand at charting...which means math...HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! Also, it just took me the better part of an hour (or more) to wind the bloody skeins - I'm using some Sea Silk that someone sent me in a swap a long time ago, and one of the skeins got really, really tangled about 20 yards from the end.

Yes, there was cussing. Swearing, even. No tears, but if not for the (saintly) patience of dear Mr.Q - who not only put up with my tantrum, but helped me unravel the mess - well, it's possible that blood may have been drawn. As it is, I'm just taking a short break for the sake of morale, before I get back to my "homework."

In the meantime, I've finished projects for three of my classes...One, Herbology, was simply a case of getting my "greenhouse" in order. Which meant playing and sorting my stash. No arguing here! It was most fun. There may have been fondling. I'll never tell.

The wee bit of knitting that was handed in follows...First, a soft, lacy washcloth for Charms homework (the assignment was to "knit something that makes you happy, as a Patronus charm against seasonal angst" - what better than something to use in a hot bath, with a glass of wine?):

The other was for Arithmancy, which required students to create something using their "numbers" (Gladys Quimby: Character: 2; Heart: 4; Social: 7) and, for bonus points, use corresponding colours. I did another washcloth, and managed to finagle the numbers to get my House colours:

(Yes, I am a geek. And?)

(And...I'm having way too much fun!)

Alrighty. Back to the homework.
