Podster, Potter and a photograph

I’ve not had an alliterative blog title in awhile.  It was time.

I have decided to focus on one knitting project at a time (I doubt anyone will believe this.  I don’t, but I’m going to try).  I started some Podster Gloves for a friend.  I was worried that they were going to be too big for her, so I mailed them off for a “fitting”.  She assures me that they are fine.  I still am worried that they are a little big, but I am moving forward.  These gloves have half fingers and then the optional flap you can pull over to make them a mitten. I am knitting them with Shibui sock yarn.  It’s awesome.  I love knitting with it.

I am a little worried though, and I hope I am not in absolute denial.  I am afraid that I don’t have enough yarn to finish this glove.  I have to finish the flap and then do the thumb (it will also have a flap option).

That doesn’t look like a lot of yarn.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

And while I claim that I am focusing on one project at a time, I decided to participate in the Harry Potter cup on Ravelry.  It’s this massive knitting group.  I was sorted and am in Ravenclaw.   There is a 3 month term. You have to complete one project per month.  The projects have themes based on the course you choose (Potions, Herbology, etc).  I think it is going to be great fun.  I’ve got to decide on a project though!  You can work on more difficult projects – for OWLS and NEWTs. I don’t even quite know how all that works yet.  I’m starting with the basics.

And last, but certainly not least, I want to include a Davey picture.  I have a new very favorite picture that I took with my phone the other day.  It’s of Davey and my grandfather.
