6. Diagon Alley (Harry Potter Art Yarn Advent Calendar)

"Can we buy all this in London?" Harry wondered aloud.  "If yeh know where to go", said Hagrid. 

- Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J. K. Rowling

Description: This is a small version of the Diagon Alley skein I made a few months ago. I chose a book for Flourish and Blott’s, an owl because Harry gets Hedwig from Hagrid on this day, and one cauldron because Hagrid and Harry argue over buying one made from solid gold. I chose the colours because I somehow imagine Diagon Alley to consist of old grey stone houses and shops, some of which might be painted or tiled in different colours.
Fibre Types: merino wool, linen
Colours: greys, with a bit of dark blue, green, and rust red
Add-Ins: cauldron, book, and owl charms (one each)
