The first week of HPKCHC has really gotten me fired up. I've got my third homework assignment, a hedgehog for Herbology, on my needles that will be finished as soon as I post this and get back to her. The owl bag and the headband were submitted for History of Magic and Muggle Studies respectively. Both have been accepted and scored - although I have yet to learn what all that truly means, I'm overjoyed all the same.
I also submitted my first Broom just a few minutes ago - from what I can gather, a broom is a larger project that will take four to six weeks to finish so you can work on it through out the term. I am going to reattempt the Sun and Sea Shawl in my beautiful Bellini yarn since I gave up only a few rows in for a NerdWars challenge. The yarn was rewound and has sat, slightly defeated, for over a month now. I think because I can see the end of the school year in sight, I have more confidence that I can finish it. I won't be needing to remember my row in odd places because I have to stop suddenly when the school has let out - I can choose where I stop in the pattern repeat which should make for an easier time.
Speaking of frogging and reusing, I frogged Pokey's sweater yesterday. You'll see the yarn again - for that I am certain. I just didn't see the point in continuing a sweater that wasn't going to fit him properly. I think instead of a pull over, I'll make him a cardigan and I will make it off his measurements, not what he insists his size is because his measurements don't factor in pride. I know how he feels though because I personally think my tape measure has a vendetta against me, though I don't know why.
I've got to get on top of the laundry today but other than that - it's going to be a wonderful crafting day around here. I might even pull out the beads and such to let Hobbit get crazy for a while.
Anything crafty on the agenda for you today?
