So apparently the Harry Potter CAL that I joined is going to be a Care of Magical Creatures theme. And, the items that we’ll be crocheting will be surprises until the end! The person running it has given a list of items that we’ll need.

Quoted from the group:

Hooks – B, E, G, and H (or those that suit the yarn you choose)

Yarn – WW or DK in : 3 (or more, get scrappy!) in varigated (your choice of colors, but try to make sure at least one is in bright or jewel tones), black, brown or tan (or a varigated brown or tan), light pink, green (this is the only color we might use a whole skein for), yellow (or gold) and whatever color you want to make your Owl. Also, black crochet thread in whatever size you have; embroidery thread will work as well. If you don’t have that, we will discuss how black sewing thread might be used.

Notions: tapestry needle, black thread (see above), eyes of your choice: google, safety, felt circles, beads or embroidered on. You will need various sized-eyes, from about 1/4 of an inch up to 1/2 inch. All of these projects, if you elect to put eyes on, would look fantastic will embroidered eyes, and that would be a safe option for children.

Remember, you can also add the cauldron muttix2 told us about as a catch-all for your Creatures or as a great way to give them as a gift!

Tee hee! I was mentioned as I told them about a cauldron! 🙂 I love when I show people new things. Anyway, I have most of the stuff needed, I’ll just need to buy:

  1. Black crochet thread
  2. Jewel toned, varigated yarn (I’ll likely get some Peaches and Creme as that is a good deal)
  3. Black, brown, and tan yarn (I have varigated tan but I’ll need some black for the cauldron and will get it for something else as well. So I don’t technically NEED this.)

Wow, that’s all I need! Originally when I looked through the list I thought that I needed more but I have yarn in all the other colors. That’s great as money is pretty tight right now.

Whatever I make with this CAL will work for my Christmas Year-round CAL as I intend to give the toys to my boys for Christmas.
