Something's fishy in the Snake Pit!

The March HoH Challenge was to craft something inspired by the zodiac sign Pisces and the people born underneath it (such as our esteemed and ever-so-awesome HoH), and these Slytherins rose to the challenge!

Maigret whipped up this great scarf at the speed of a fast flying fish, which is the constellation (Volans) that inspired the oceanic neckwear:

Knitsquid dyed this beautiful yarn to match the seas sailed by Jason and the Argonauts, inspired by the constellation Vela:

Peanutzmom dyed some lovely yarn that could tempt some Surfer Dudes out of their watery habitat long enough to learn to knit and crochet.

Move over Nemo, you've got competition! Abycat knitted and felted this adorable fish inspired by Volans as well as Pisces:

In honor of corseted suffragettes and the sexiness of all Pisces, rockinsticks made this hot little boned corset and began scouting potential yarnbombing sites:

01Tangled exhibited the creativity associated with Pisces with her multi-sized socks, recognizing that feet are the body part related to Pisces and representing Piscean numbers as well. They were on special sale in the Slytherin Common Room!:

Joseybug made this cute pair of fish-tail embellished mitts and found a creative way to photograph the pair while wearing them (seriously, I'm going to have to try this!):

Oshelle went for a direct representation, and knitted this soft Pisces washcloth for her sister, displaying the Piscean trait of generosity:
