Captain Jack and Captain Barbossa

More visitors to the Slytherin common room today. Here to teach a module on Pirate Studies are Captain Jack and Captain Barbossa from Pirates of the Caribbean. They were a special order for a special Etsy customer.

I think I might develop Jack into a knitting pattern, because he is a great project to make - lots of little scarves and bits and pieces, perfect for the impatient knitter. You're never far away from finishing the piece that you're on!

Hermione Granger doll

Sorry, yes, I know, she's not in Slytherin, and at this rate I'm going to be banned from the common room and mucking out the Thestrels for the entire autumn term. But here is my Hermione Granger doll. She was a special order for an Etsy customer.

I'd like to think that she is as bossy and as know-it-all as the real-life non-knitted Hermione. She's gone off to a new home already, but if you'd like a Hermione doll of your own, drop me a line.

I'm currently working on some Pirates of the Caribbean dolls but after that I've got a bit of a special Harry Potter idea in the knitting pipeline (Is that technically a knitline? Probably).
