September 1st starts the new semester for the HP Knitting/Crocheting House Cup on Ravely. I will be a second year Hufflepuff :-) Last semester (semester=year in our little House Cup world) I made so many things. Trying to finish class assignments and also doing an O.W.L. project kept me knitting happily for 3 months!! I probably finished more knitting projects during the semester than I have in my entire knitting career. And yes, some of the projects were just small things...but still 'playing the game' gave me the motivation to try new things and learn new things.
Here are some pics of the things I made last semester
My first pair of socks ever!
And there was the shawl that was in hibernation for months that I finally finished and another hat, few other washcloths and 3 other bears (way too many people in my life having babies at the same time!!). But it was so much fun! I can't wait to see what our professors have lined up for homework assignments.
