The magical crafting world is no different. In the House Cup (a group on Ravelry), OWLs are advanced study projects that take steady work over a three month period.
When was the last time *anything* took me three months, right? So, needless to say, I do not qualify for the OWL program. But that doesn't mean I don't play along in my own way.
This month, it's Herbology. The OWL requirement I chose is 'floral art', using a pattern that makes you think of plants.
I chose this Garden Path Shawl designed by Lily Go. It's supposed to make you think of a paved path surrounded by leaves.
It took me an entire week to make, because I had a tooth surgically extracted two days after I started it. :oP But I think it works!
I used 2,332 yards of cotton blend yarn, making it the perfect 'throw' for the couch...
