Spooky & Cute Cup of Tea (Destash-Along Project #2)

I not only finished my second destash-along project this weekend, but posted my first HPKCHC assignment for 2010. The assignment was to craft something dangerous. At first glance my item isn't really dangerous until. . .

Here is my explanation to the HPKCHC Potions class:

Good evening Professor. MissieZee of Gryffindor turning in my Potions homework.

I decided to go with option 1 and crochet something dangerous. While I thoroughly enjoy a cup of tea (or two) every night after classes, tea in and of itself is not extremely dangerous, unless you make it too hot and burn yourself. :)

So, I went through my potions kit and added a little Belladonna to it.

Now it is poisoned tea. I won’t be drinking this cup!

I really like the way it turned out. I might have to add a few of these to my shop, whenever I decide to reopen it.

This is the first, of many yarn destash projects (I have 2 others in the works now). For this destash- along project I used 100% of my stash. The blue yarn is from my "new" box of yarn. I have no idea what kind of yarn it is, but it worked really well for this project.


  1. Very cute...and clever, too! Good job.

  2. Very nice! Love the little "poison" face, really adds nicely! You'll have to make a little "Drink me" tag to go along with it. lol
    And you should make a matching pink one too!

  3. Cute project! Have a great day. :) Tammy

  4. That is adorable!

    (Must learn to crochet better!)

  5. I love your little skullies.
    Poison tea - so tempting yet so deadly! :)
