Harry Potter Knitting Crochet House Cup
So, where have I been for the last 5 or so months?
Knitting, that's where! I finally started really looking at Ravelry, and found a few great groups, and started knitting like stink.
Knitting for the Harry Potter Knit/Crochet House Cup, on Ravelry. If you haven't asked for an invitation to Ravelry, and you do any kind of fibre art, you should--it is fun. It is amazing; it is full of people who love to do fibre art type things. It has the world's best database of patterns that is searchable. You will fill your list of things to do in twenty minutes, just looking at patterns.
What have I worked on?
A lot of little things (arm bands, hats, coffee cup sleeves) and a few big things.
Like: a Sylvi sweater from the Twist Collective.
A couple of Felted Pirate hats--from Knit like a Pirate-this one is for Patch. (Still one to come for the birthday girl).
A stash busting sweater, inspired by Molly Weasley, using odd balls and a stripe pattern to make it beautiful. I think Molly would be proud of me for this one.
And, a great shawl, that I actually managed to finish after changing needles and trying different yarns, some of which I liked and some of which I hated.
