March Knitting Schedule

This month, I'm only going to work on one class project at a time, so there's just an open slot for that now. I'll be starting with the Noro cowl, as I have an idea and really want to give it a go.

Shrugs for Wedding: 1, 7, 13, 19, 28
Scarf to match Charity Hat: 2, 8, 14, 21, 28
Raspberry Beret: 3, 9, 15, 22, 29
Crochet Dress: 4, 10, 16, 20, 23, 30
Class Project: 5, 11, 17, 24, 27, 31
Shipwreck Shawl: 6, 12, 18, 25

I may fiddle about with the days a bit - looks like I might want to add more days to work on the shawl, seeing as I'd like it done by April. Eep, indeed.

February Recap and March To Do List

February FO Count: 4 (2011 total: 10)
  • Knitted Dress for Joan
  • Scarf for Maggie
  • Baby Cthulu
  • Hat for Charity
12 in 2011 Update: Completed: 1

January: Knit Dress (ended up being for Joan - she liked it better) All Done!

February: (WIP) Crochet dress for Maggie -coming up for March

March: (WIP)Shipwreck Shawl: added a few more rows, no major progress. I want to get moving on this and maybe have it done for the bridal shower in April.

April: (WIP)Two matching shrugs - Two collars done, moving into the first body now!

May: Socks for my son (4) - he'll need kilt hose for the wedding, after all, so I need to get a pattern together ASAP.

June: New kilt hose for Daddy - planning on ordering the yarn for this after the wedding.

July: (WIP) Dollar and a Half Cardigan - also a back burner, after the wedding.

August: (WIP) Skew sock needs a second sock- still!

September: (WIP) squishy Noro scarf- sits untouched this month.

October: (WIP) Lion Homespun Blanket - waay back burner.

November: (WIP) my Jeannie shawl - not a stitch this month.

December: As a present to myself, if I can clear out most or all of this list, I’d like to make this just for me - well, this will most likely sit on my list until sometime mid-December, when I finally clear out the list.

What's in the Bag (March):
  • Shipwreck Shawl
  • Girls Shrugs for Wedding
  • Scarf to match Charity Hat - using up the rest of the yarn
  • Raspberry Beret (didn't finish in time for HPKCHC for February, but so close to being done!)
Still need to go look at class assignments for March for HPKCHC, so there will be more to add, plus I need to write and post my schedule for this month!

HPKCHC Ideas/Attempts:
  • DADA: Noro Cowl. I scrapped an idea I had for a scarf last month and now have this huge ball of Noro Kureyon that needs a project. Found a cute cowl/circular scarf type pattern and now I'm off!
  • Muggle Studies: Having worked out a (somewhat) pattern for a knitted Vaseline jar cozy, I think I'll give it a go this month. Failing that, I amy indulge in a Garterlac washcloth.
  • HoM: Bowling Gloves. Nuff sed.
  • Potions (or charms): I made some nice lacy socks for my mom for Christmas and still have most of a ball of the yarn left (alpaca/silk blend - yum!). I think she might dig a lacy scarf to throw on for church or mildly chilly spring-type days.
  • Transfiguration: Tempted to put myself down for a washcloth (spot remover) but we'll see when the time comes. I have a bit of reading/queue checking to do for this one.
  • Herbology: I found a super-cute crochet pattern for a bouquet and I'd like to give it a try just for funsies.
  • Arithmancy: As mathy as I am, I got nothing here. I'll let you know after I do some pattern-spelunking.
NOW, I'm done.
