5. Borgin & Burkes (Harry Potter Art Yarn Advent Calendar)

"Can I have that?" interrupted Draco, pointing at the withered hand on its cushion. "Ah, the Hand of Glory!" said Mr. Borgin, abandoning Mr. Malfoy's list and scurrying over to Draco. "Insert a candle and it gives light only to the holder! Best friend of thieves and plunderers! Your son has fine taste, sir."
Draco paused to examine a long coil of hangman's rope and to read, smirking, the card propped on a magnificent necklace of opals, Caution: Do Not Touch. Cursed - Has Claimed the Lives of Nineteen Muggle Owners to Date.

- Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J. K. Rowling

Description: Last year’s advent calendar had a Diagon Alley yarn, and I wanted a Knockturn Alley yarn this time – but I ended up with this particular shop instead of the whole street as it was most inspiring! I chose dark colours for this yarn, and I found creepy hand charms to represent the hand of glory, and beautiful faceted fake opals for the necklace. I also added skulls - for good measure and because they are mentioned in the shop description as well.
Fibre Types
: merino wool, alpaca, linen fibre, bluefaced leicester wool
Colours: black, dark blue, pine green, silvery grey
Add-Ins: howlite skull bead, creepy hand charm
