The last few days have been a whirlwind of crafting and posting classes in HPKCHC. Now that the first month of term is over, I thought I would take a moment to see if I had met the goals I set for this month. I have three finished projects that have not yet gotten their own blog posts: the MAPLE LEAF shawl, the Ladderstitch Dishcloths, and some dyeing experiments. I will be writing up detailed posts on those projects and posting them over the next couple days. In the mean time, here’s the overview!
Against my better judgment, I stayed up until 11:00 pm Wednesday night, finishing up this Quinn Bag, even though I had to be up at 5:30 am so I could be out the door at 6:15 am to pick up my mother and head to the airport to attend my sister’s medical school graduation. I wanted to finish the project before I left because I was going to see the recipient. Technically, I could have brought it with me and finished it before she left on Saturday, but once I got started, I just kept going until I was done.
In last week’s post, I told you I wasn’t sure what to bring with me as travel knitting while attending my sister’s graduation in Baltimore. I broke my general rules of travel knitting, and brought 6 skeins of yarn for 3 different projects. It’s a good thing, as I ended up having a lot more time to craft than I expected. I used part or all of 5 of the skeins, and worked on all 3 projects!
Projects Mentioned Last Week
It’s WIP Wednesday. I finished the Palindrome Scarf this week and already blogged about that. The Quinn Bag and Granny Square blanket that I posted about in last week’s WIP Wednesday are still in progress, and I’ve started two new projects. SPOILER ALERT: If you, dear reader, happen to be a woman on my Christmas gift giving list, you might want to avoid this post, as one of the new projects is a Christmas gift!
Work in Progress (WIP) Wednesday will be a regular feature of my blog, sharing the progress I’ve made on my active projects. I’m not going to list every unfinished project I have laying around the house. I think I have maybe 6 unfinished, hibernating projects, which is not bad, but there is no point updating you when nothing is happening with them! For this first WIP Wednesday post, I have 3 projects to share.
