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!
MAPLE LEAF the Eighth
I finished knitting MAPLE LEAF the Eighth a week ago. I still have to weave in the ends and block it. I probably will do MAPLE LEAF the Eighth and MAPLE LEAF the Ninth at the same time, since I can easily block two MAPLE LEAF shawls on my dining room table at once.
Wearing of the Green Socks
I am one stripe away from starting the ribbing for the top of these socks. I haven’t knit on these at all in a week and a half because working with such small needles was causing my wrists to ache.
MAPLE LEAF the Ninth
As soon as I finished MAPLE LEAF the Eighth, I started MAPLE LEAF the Ninth. I haven’t gotten too far with it yet.
Gazebogal of Ravenclaw Tower has been making a pile of scrubbies. I made one last month for Quidditch Round 3 (on the top in the picture below), since I needed a quick project and we had to make something another student had made in Round 2. I really like the scrubby so decided to make a bunch. It was a perfect thing to knit while visiting with family over the last few days because I have the pattern memorized, it’s an extremely portable project, and they are quite fast to knit. They are knit flat and sewed into shape. I am going to knit a few more and then sew them all.
Hufflepuff Houndstooth Scarf
The prompt for Quidditch Round 4 provides several options, one of which is to craft a set of items. I decided to weave a set of 5 houndstooth scarves, one in each of the Hogwarts House colors and the fifth in House Unity Purple. I’m three-quarters done with the first of those scarves, in Hufflepuff yellow and black.
