May 2014 Wrap Up

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!

Baltic Blue Quinn Bag

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.

WIP Wednesday: May 14, 2014

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!

WIP Wednesday

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.
