Knitted in MadelineTosh Sport (white) and the yarn Kelly sent me all the way from England (blue). They didn't look that great until they got a good blocking. I massacred one of Byron's foam alphabet squares, turned them inside out, shoved the high tech blockers in, and steamed them over a pot. I would have given them a good soaking, but the blue was coming off on my left finger as I knitted, and a steam block worked fine.
Obviously, I couldn't decide which color I liked best for the background/pattern, so I did one of each ;) Now I think I like the right one best. More color, and a 'cleaner' pattern, I guess.
Now I've finished my OWL, which was 4 pairs of mittens in the three months of the Harry Potter game "school year". And when I've finished just one more project (which is nearly done) I'll have done 18 classes, as well as doing pretty well as a Quidditch chaser.
Next month is a break from Hogwarts, so I'll be doing a few old WIPs, and a little bit more of this...
Thankyou for taking too much tax, Julia, because giving it back in a chunk means I have enough spending money to buy a Knitter's Loom, and one can never have too many yarny toys!
