Mini Project

Over on Ravelry, I'm competing in the Harry Potter Knitting/Crochet House Cup.  I'm a first year member of Ravenclaw.  This month our first assignments are due. Unfortunately real life is getting in the way of my knitting and I didn't want to start a whole bunch of projects only to not finish them (and thus accrue an ever growing list of WsIP).  I chose instead to start (and finish) a small project for the Charms course.  We were asked to produce a "protective covering for an item of value."  I decided to knit and felt an iPod case/cozy.  I happened to have some Patons Classic Wool Merino in need of a project, so that's what I used.  I thought the royal purple color might help deflect any mishaps from the iPod.

I haven't decide whether to add a button or not.  For now I'll leave it buttonless and see how it performs.

Knitting Progress Update

I've been knitting along on my cardigan sleeve. I'm afraid it's not terribly exciting, being that it's simple K1, P1 ribbing with paired increases every 10 rows.

The EZ 100th Anniversary Pi is languishing. I'm not even sure what round I stopped on. Fortunately I'm not very far along so it'll be easy enough to count.

I might have put in another repeat on each of the socks in progress.  I squeezed in about 1/2 a bobbin of lace weight spinning.

Even with a couple of afternoons off from work I haven't had much knitting or spinning time.  Maybe next week.
