I could blame it on being SOOO busy...course that might not be entirely true. It is really just because I forget I have a blog :-)
I don't even remember what I have been doing....
Let's see....January started up a new 'term' of HPKCHC...so I have spent time knitting up some projects for that. In January I actually made my first pair of mittens for Divination class. The assignment was palm reading....and so we had to figure out what type of palm we had...fire palm, water palm etc....and then craft mittens, gloves, or handwarmers.
And then made my 2nd pair of mittens this month for my Potions class. The assignment this month was to craft something using a technique that you’ve previously tried and hated, or something you hate the idea of, or using a fiber you despise, to get over your previous dislike for it. Or just to give you an excuse to detail all of the faults of that particular technique/fiber/pattern/etc. And since I hate the color purple...my 2nd pair of mittens was in purple.
I also have spent a lot of time working on my Muggle's Study O.W.L. for which I am attempting to make my first adult size sweater. So far I have almost completed the back and front pieces. O.W.L.s are projects that are more than a month long...so we have the entire term to finish it. I hope I can finish this by the end of March.
Goal: 2 weeks of focused, intense personal & team challenges to tackle while watching the actual Olympics unfold before our eyes.
So even more knitting took place!! These are some of my projects I submitted for Ravelrympics 2010.
A hat and scarf for Jamie.
The hat was entered in the Hat Halfpipe event.
The scarf in the Scarf Super-G event.
