The Spring term for the Harry Potter Knitting / Crochet House Cup ended July 31. August is break month. I usually don't do too much crafting during break month. There are no points . But right now, I'm working on 3 fun projects.
Yoke Cowl. It takes just one skein of worsted. I have this super pretty skein that someone in Gryffindor gave me a few years ago. The Cowl is knitting up really fast. I just have the last 2 sections to knit.
The second project is Daybreak by Stephen West. I'm knitting this to be a shop sample for Acorn Street Yarn Shop. I've never knit anything for a shop before, and I'm a bit nervous about my knitting. I have to be really careful to follow the pattern exactly, or take really good notes about anything that I change. And I can't make any mistakes.
The third project is really just swatching/practice/sample. JitteryKnitter asked me if I could teach a mini-class on adding crochet to knits. Well, sure I could. But, I need to actually ADD some crochet to some knits so I have examples of what you can do. The first idea that I am testing is adding a lace crocheted color to a plain raglan sweater.
Here is what it looks like:
I have a couple more ideas to try out, and two weeks before school starts to do it.
