July 2014 Preview

My original July 2014 plans were make a bunch of granny squares and finish the spinning for my OWL.  Thank goodness!  Since June was such a dismal failure, July has inherited June’s cast offs and I do not have to bump anything off my project list.

July Plans

The theme of July is: FINISH ALL THE THINGS!!  This is pretty much my personal plan every month, but during the last month of a HPKCHC term that personal drive to finish everything gets ramped up in a big way.

HPKCHC Classes / Detention
  • One Row Handspun Scarf by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee (on Ravelryon her blog)
  • Granny Squares
  • A pair of plain vanilla socks
  • Irish Hiking Mittens
  • Diagonal Dishcloths
  • Sheplova Mushroom Quinn Bag
  • Hugo Monster
  • Detention: Finish MAPLE LEAF the Third

The Final Round of Quidditch runs July 4 – 27 and has a 450 yard minimum.  I plan to make MAPLE LEAF the Fourth.  This is extra incentive to finish up MAPLE LEAF the Third as I need the needles from the Third in order to start the Fourth.

Advanced Studies
  • OOTP
    • Finish Begonia Swirl Shawl and turn it in by July 13.
    • This means knitting 5% of the shawl / day, beginning on July 1.
  • OWL
    • Spin the remaining 4 ounces of the Psalm 23 Farm fiber.
    • Ply together the Psalm 23 Farm Fiber and the Ohio Valley Farms pin-drafted wool
    • Spin & ply the 4 ounces of NGY fiber.
    • Spin & ply the 4 ounces of Sassy Bee fiber
    • Must be finished by July 31.
