9. Freshly Caught Cornish Pixies (Harry Potter Art Yarn Advent Calendar)

"I must ask you not to scream," said Lockhart in a low voice. "It might provoke them." As the whole class held its breath, Lockhart whipped off the cover. "Yes," he said dramatically. "Freshly caught Cornish pixies. “ Seamus Finnigan couldn't control himself. He let out a snort of laughter that even Lockhart couldn't mistake for a scream of terror. […] The pixies were electric blue and about eight inches high, with pointed faces and voices so shrill it was like listening to a lot of budgies arguing.

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

Description: Again, the colour choice was quite obvious – I had to find a really bright and stunning blue, though, and I am happy to say I did. I added blue sparkling angelina (glittery fibre) and decided on a highly textured, wavy-plied yarn. It’s fluffy and glittery, also featuring blue glass beads for more highlights and sparkle.
Fibre Types
: merino wool, linen fibre
Colours: bright blue, darker blue
Add-Ins: sewing thread, glitter, glass beads
