The Harry Potter Knitting / Crocheting House Cup (HPKCHC) Spring 2014 Term started on May 1. Before term starts, I usually plan out my projects. I did some of my usual planning for this term, but did not finish or get a chance to write a blog post about it because of getting ready for and attending Maryland Sheep and Wool. Today, I am finishing my planning. I did talk about this topic in the one podcast episode I published, but in case you haven’t seen that episode, I will explain in detail how the game works and how I plan for a new term.
My spinning wheel arrived. I bought the wheel on Friday at The Fiber Event in Greencastle, Indiana. Susan told me that by ordering it on Friday, I should have it on Monday. All day, I was distracted, waiting for the wheel to arrive. FedEx and UPS deliver to my house late in the day. I rarely get packages before 5:oo pm, and at busy times of the year (December), I’ve gotten packages delivered as late as 9:00 pm. Still, I paced around the house. I randomly peeked out the window at my front stoop, just in case I missed the sound of the doorbell ringing. Finally, at 6:10 pm, the doorbell rang. My wheel had arrived!!!

- Salmon Quinn Bag — This is the bag I finished in July and that is pictured in the podcast.
- Ladder Stitch Dishcloth — This is the first dishcloth I finished, which was not shown in the podcast. You can see I made a mistake somewhere near the beginning, so it is kind of flared out at the bottom.

Headmistress Challenge — This is my project page for last term’s Headmistress Challenge, which includes pictures of the bookshelves I polyurethaned.
