Finished the front (or back) panel today. The gauge is right on, which I’m really happy about. This yarn is super soft and not scratchy like I thought it might be. I’ll start another sleeve today, since I frogged the last.
HUFFLEPUFF - tortishell glasses and cable knit sweaters; doodling in notebooks; crunching yellow leaves underneath boots; marshmallow scented candles; feeling quiet, feeble sunshine on your face; cats purring on warm blankets
RAVENCLAW - trenchcoats and corduroy skirts; the sound of rain on gray sidewalks; wire glasses and thick eyeliner; staying home to study on halloween night; sad eyes; writing poetry in quiet cafes; cobblestone alleyways; black coffee
SLYTHERIN - black lipstick and ripped jeans; staying up late; sly smirks blowing bubblegum; skeleton face paint; window shopping with friends; doc martens; cloudy, starless nights; cigarette smoke
GRYFFINDOR - pumpkin spice; going to haunted houses; homecoming night; talking during class; jumping into piles of leaves; scaring your friends; drive in theaters and thick blankets; scarves and beanies
Oh boy, I am eating my own words after saying that knitting this sweater was going to be fast. I am making progress, I just haven’t really had the time to sit down and knit, and when I did have time I was working on my sisters socks. Now those are done, and I can focus on this sweater. Maybe I can finish the back in the next week. That would be amazing.
I did finally get a chance to post my Year 2 album to Facebook. It is sort of a photo journal looking back on my second year in Okinawa. I would love to refine it some day and post it to VSCO or some other platform. We will see.
