In other more interesting blogable news I seem to have gotten the hang of crochet (thanks to my advanced studies on the subject, ha!).
This little cloth also earned me a medal in the Ravellenics competition (a.k.a. the-games-that-must-not-be-named). After first competing in this style of crafting event in 2008 I went looking for other groups that made crafting into a "competitive sport". That's how I found the House Cup lo' those many years ago. I can't believe how much the group has grown and how proud I am that my house has won the cup again! Though my contributions this past term were minor, I have big plans for the upcoming Fall term. I'd like to try for another OWL and do a little designing along the way. Plus, the Fall term is usually when I get all of my holiday crafting done. Needless to say I need the competitive aspect of the cup to push me towards meeting my deadlines. For example, I am hopeful that my Uncle won't be the proud recipient of an "I.O.U. a knit hat" this year (sorry Uncle Rob, but your head is bigger than the kids').
