For HPKCHC Quidditch Round 4, we must make something that either (1) gets hung on a wall; (2) is a matched set; or (3) is outlandishly large, sparkly, crazy, or distracting. I’m going with option 2 and weaving a matched set of 5 houndstooth scarves (using the same pattern qualifies as a set). That’s one scarf in each of the four house colors and the fifth in House Unity purples. The Hufflepuff scarf is the first one I’ve finished.
I haven’t posted progress in a couple of weeks as I’ve been visiting with friends and family. I’ve got a lot in progress at the moment!
I’ve been working on this scarf as a goal for HPKCHC Quidditch Match 3, which ends at midnight POT today! This project just seemed to go on and on and on. But that’s pretty much what it’s like whenever you knit a scarf!
Last week, I only had one project in progress. That’s no longer the case! I’m back to my usual project juggling act.
For months I kept telling you that I was going to make Irish Hiking Mittens. I kept putting them on my plan for the month, but never starting them. This was the project that got pushed off while I did other things. I finally finished them, just in time to turn them in by the Quidditch Match 2 deadline on Oct 6.
July was a rather frustrating month of crafting. I met few of my goals. I expected to get a lot done because I was home for the entire month, but this turned out not to be the case. Since I was home for the entire month, I spent a lot of time catching up on home tasks that had languished while I was doing so much traveling between March and June. It was excellent and necessary to get those things done, but it meant the crafting did not get done.
I am a bit behind on my blogging! I finished MAPLE LEAF the Fourth on Sunday, June 27, in time to turn it in for the final round of Quidditch! I haven’t missed posting a finished MAPLE LEAF the Third, by the way. I am still not finished weaving in the ends. Soon. I hope. Continue reading “MAPLE LEAF the Fourth”
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.
June is over! We are already halfway through the year! It is time to review my crafting goals for June and see if I met them or not. SPOILER ALERT: Not so great on the goals this month, but you probably guessed that from my lack of blogs for the last couple weeks. I’m not totally sure what happened. Let’s break it down.
