HECK ideas for Potions or DADA

by Minsue

Nothing specific, since these classes are wide open, but if you’re out of ideas, you can say that making things for the House Elves takes you to your calm and happy place, soothes your anger and lifts your spirits.

HECK ideas for Herbology

If you need an idea for Herbology, here are some things the House Elves might like or use for summer camp:

Bags such as:
Knit and Cable Hand Bag
Surf’s Up -- this one is crochet
The Doggie Bag
Sundance Beach Bag

Dishcloths such as:
Lace Cable Dishcloth

Other items like:
Cabled Napkin Rings -- they use them for ringtoss mania night
Itty-Bitty Soap Scrap Sack
any number of cables mug cozies
Trebuchet Hot Water Bottle Cozy
Soap Sweater
Entrelac Cube with continuous cables -- I’ve been wanting to make this!
Cables and Lace Christmas Ball -- already suggested for a group project
Backbone bookmark
Cable Cozy -- because who goes to camp without their iPod
La Luz Eye Pillows
Journal Cover
Sundance Lunch Sack
Palm Tree -- the perfect palm frond for a lackey to use to fan the God-Empress of HECK
Little Lamb Sock Critter
Owl Cable Owl

Hey, HECK Puffs!

Wondering how HECK will fit into this month’s assignments? So am I. My plan is for HECK to be an easy way to get something turned in because the story is already there. So your HECK project could work for any class.

For July the story is that we’re making things for House Elf Summer Camp at the Helga Hufflepuff House Elf Camp and Spa (I think the name changes everytime I type it though).

I’ll go through the classes this evening and make a list of ideas to go with each class. I’m mostly a knitter, so if you crochet, spin or dye and have thoughts, please contribute those.

It would be cool to coordinate turning these projects in together -- maybe the 25 through 27 of July?

Finally, do we want to keep this planning in the common room, or open a thread in the Huffle Blog group?

eta: anyone can be in HECK, which stands for the House Elf Crafting Klatch

Chaperones for Camp

Lettuce leaf has asked to be a chaperone when the elves go to camp! What a kind person, to volunteer her time like that!
