The early birds!

Or rather, the early snakes!

It's only two days into the month of March and already several Slytherins who were quickest on the draw have posted homework assignments to the House Cup classes.

For Potions class, dovely dyed yarn in a womanly royal purple to show who is the queen of her household!

Muggle Studies asked us to craft ways to prevent or cure illness like Muggles, and maigret's chill-preventing hat and bootie set for a newborn baby will not only prevent illness from a cold, but do it adorably!

Mi5chicken celebrated the honorable but mysterious Michigan tradition of the hockey octopus for the History of Magic sporting assignment (Go Red Wings!):

For Herbology, BronwenD's unfortunate illness inspired her to make a lovely poppy in honor of Madame Pomfrey, who probably would have just the right potion on hand to make her feel better.

For Defense Against the Dark Arts, newknitter64 showed that, unlike Umbridge, she's not averse to practical experience, and did beautifully on her first dyeing experience with kool-aid.

Suenosdejmi succeeded in being true to herself while cleverly playing on Umbridge's favoritism, by distracting her with a cute Slytherin mini-sock and crafting a second mini-sock honoring her Hufflepuff side.

In Arithmancy, dovely turned in yet another gorgeous dyeing project with her "golden fleece" colored yarn, inspired by the March constellation Carina, which was originally part of the constellation Argo Navis, the ship for Jason and the Argonauts.

So far, it's a gorgeous start to the last month of the winter term. Awesome job Slytherins!
