HPKCHC Fall 2014 Term

I did not do in-depth planning for the upcoming term, like I usually do during the break month.  We are two weeks into the term already.  I need a plan!  If you aren’t familiar with the Harry Potter Knit Crochet House Cup, or would like a reminder on how it works, visit my HPKCHC Spring 2014 Term blog post, which describes the game in detail.

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.
