I have, however, whipped up a quick little project for my Charms homework:
I'm calling him my "Better get my O.W.L. done" owl. I used Raynor Gellatly's Owlies pattern (Ravelry link) and scraps of Vanna's Choice in Ravenclaw-appropriate colours.
His menacing stare (as with all my previous stuffies, I've managed to insert the child-safe eyes just off-centre, giving the thing a slightly derranged visage) might just light a fire under my butt to start Spring Leaves (remember Spring Leaves, anyone?) by the O.W.L. proposal deadline on Monday.
And in stash-enchancement news, these pretties were waiting for me at the post office yesterday:
Wollmeise Twin in Lavendel and Horstensie (Hydrangea). So, so pretty. Unfortunately my camera has an absolute devil of a time with purples, so here's a colour-corrected (sort of, anyway) shot of the Lavendel.
It's not right, either, but closer to the real shade than the other photo. It's almost electric. Too, too gorgeous. I'll never tire of Wollmeise; might have to stalk tonight...
