Winter has officially arrived here. Maybe not according to the calendar but according to the more than a foot of snow and the super cold. I don't enjoy winter. I do however enjoy all the woolies that aren't so crazy when the weather is like it has been. I didn't have a whole lot of knitting time in October due to the play and I didn't seem to find a whole lot in November either, although that was my own fault. I just didn't work on things. Maybe I was feeling a little bored with my projects?
I did manage to finish my Froot Loops socks.
This is Fibernymph Dyeworks Bedazzled sock in the Froot Loops colorway. It's really all the colors of Froot Loops cereal and you can't tell how sparkly they are in any pictures I have taken but I love how sparkly they are. They make me really happy. I managed to get these turned in for Harry Potter Knit and Crochet House Cup as a Detention (project started before the month started and finished during the month).
I decided to go small for my class turn in and knit some teeny socks.
I took a picture of them with the Froot Loops socks for scale. I think they're so cute! They're meant to be for a one-year old but I'm not sure that my gauge is good enough. I'll have to find a one-year old to test them on. These haven't been "graded" yet but I'm confident they will be fine. These were turned in for Defense Against the Dark Arts or DADA. The prompt was to use a pattern designed by a House Cup Member. I knit these from the pattern Carmen's First Birthday Socks designed by Barknknit on Ravelry. I really liked the simple pattern and had lots of fun knitting them. This term you got bonus points if you turned in all 3 months of the term for DADA and I did so that will be nice.
I had a pretty good Thanksgiving and Birthday (which is right after Thanksgiving) so I'm trying to focus on the things I'm thankful for and not the things I could be frustrated about (like the weather). Thankful for; Knitting and knitter friends! Spinning, wool, my job, which I'm really enjoying, my family and my furry pets. All of these things make up my wild and crazy life and I wouldn't have it any other way!
Have you started your Christmas knitting yet? It's crunch time!
Next time we can talk about my OWL for Harry Potter House Cup. Whether I made it or not, what I learned and what's next.
