I can't wait for May to start!!! I have so many projects that I want to do. I just want to cast on right now and I am impatiently trying to finish up some WIPs to give my hands something to do. I just bought a bunch of yarn that I shouldn't have :) I have plans for it all but I feel bad because I have so much yarn already. I figure I will just have to knit/crochet a lot and use it all up! I'm planning a CoMC OWL this term composed of 3 sweaters and a small pouch. I'm really excited for the sweaters. I'm also an OWL examiner this coming term and I'm really excited about that. I can't wait to see everyone's proposals :)
There is a Butterfly Spin-Along in Ravenclaw Tower. I bought the Butterfly kit but I also bought a bigger spindle and plain fiber to practice on because I don't want to ruin the pretties. I'm doing pretty good so far. I have one single done and balled up ready to ply with the second single once I get it spun. It is a bit uneven but not too bad for my first try :)
The Ravenclaws (and anyone else that wants to stop by) are also doing a Steampunk-Along. I had no idea what steampunk was until they started the thread and now that I know I love it!! We even chose steampunk names, I am Lady Estella Storey Wheelingham V! I ordered my yarn and will be knitting Transatlantic by Stephen West. I really like his patterns and it makes me want to move back to Europe. Who knows, if things keep going the way they are now I just may move there :(
One of the girls at work wants me to make her some baby hats to use for her photography business. She has a few friends that would probably be interested in some crafty stuff as well so hopefully I can make some extra money.
I have some many projects I want to work on this term and I am so tempted to go in the class threads in the Staff room to see the prompts but I love being surprised on the 1st of the month so I am resisting the urge :) I have so many things that I want to make that I know I will be able to fit things in no matter what the prompts. I will be able to start with my OWL and Transatlantic too so it isn't like I won't have anything to do :)
