First Giveaway!

To date, Baby Groot has been my most viewed post on my Facebook page.  He's pretty easy to make (the only hassle is sewing on all the tiny leaves), and doesn't require tons of yarn.

The prompt for February's Defense Against the Dark Arts homework was to use the Legilimency spell and craft an item that a friend or relative would love.

My post on the Harry Potter Knit and Crochet House Cup was:

With a look of intense concentration on her face, VelvetKey enters the DADA classroom, balancing a mug full of…a dancing sapling? She glances up briefly at the professors and offers them a sheepish grin.
Um, good evening. As you can see, this one’s a bit…feisty. But when I tried the Legilimency spell, all I got was an image of a tree branch…
She trails off as if realizing something, and her face falls.
I probably shouldn’t have cast the spell near the Forbidden Forest. Um, well…Professor Sprout might like it?

The finished product:

Be sure to enter if you see this post!

I chose not to paint a smile this time, in order to more emulate the PopVinyl Groot figurine.

And the badge for completing the homework:

I'm excited for the weekend; I've got a dalek to finish and then we'll officially be done with the specific February tasks!  Whee!

Craft on, my friends!
