So if you didn’t notice, this wee thing called Christmas has come and gone, and the new year will soon be upon us.
On Christmas day I cast on a pair of socks for me. I’m using the same yarn and pattern as the Christmas socks I made for my mom (she absolutely loved them and said they were the most perfectest socks ever. But with better grammar).
I have a pretty bad case of startitis, but I want to wait to cast on ALL THE THINGS until January 1 because I’m playing in the Harry Potter Knitting and Crochet House Cup on Ravelry. What’s this? You’ve never heard of such a thing? Basically it’s a nerdy online gathering place for knitters and crocheters who love Harry Potter. You can join one of the four houses or play on your own. Each month there are “classes” you can choose to take. You are given a prompt and you craft something to earn your house points. Clear as mud? Here are more details.
Alas, I couldn’t keep myself from starting a new spinning project. This is recycled sari silk fiber that I got at SAFF this past October. I feel like Rumpelstiltskin spinning straw into gold!
