When I first bought the Cascade Pinwheel yarn from Nomad Yarns last April, I planned to make a scarf, hat, and mittens set for charity. First I made the Palindrome Scarf using one skein of the yarn, then I made the Palindrome Hat with half of the other skein. I thought the Irish Hiking Mittens would use the remaining yarn, but they did not. I was left with just over 100 yards of yarn, exactly enough to whip up a quick hat, so that’s exactly what I decided to do! I finished it yesterday.
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.
