Here's my entry for contest number 2:
Bracelets for three of the Hogwarts Houses. I lost my red floss for Gryffindor and I hadn't the time to go out and buy more. Also the pattern needed a lot of tweaking. But the other houses are well represented. I really love how the Slytherin bracelet came out. They are all knitted with DMC Perl 5 cotton on size 0 dpns.
Also I am making (like I mentioned before) a Hogwarts Unity bracelet, but I don't know if I can get it finished before midnight (I may finish knitting it but not blocked by then and blocking really shows the lace). But here's a preview...I'll post pictures of it tomorrow once it's finished.
You can barely see the yellow topaz crystal I used but trust me it's there. LOL. I actually only have two or three repeats but I have something to go to tonight, so no knitting time...pfft.
