I started an old-style (Sorcerer's/Philosopher's Stone and Chamber of Secrets) Ravenclaw scarf in February and I was planning on using it as an ongoing WIP (Work In Progress) between all of my HPKCHC activities. This way, if I finished all my projects for the month early and didn't want to start anything new, I'd have something to work on that's pretty mindless (meaning great to work on while watching TV). But the NQFYs (and possibly the main group later on in the month) are having a WIP challenge, which means I have to finish it by April 25th... And then save it for Detention in May.
I was only 20% through this scarf in February, but I've been working on it nonstop for about a week now, and I'm currently between 60 and 65% finished. These numbers aren't very encouraging! I hope I can finish it by the end of the month and still have time to swatch for my OWL (I have one out of the 5 swatches I need done so far)! I've also read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone on and off while working on my scarf, and I finished the book last night. Onto Chamber of Secrets!
(on a side note... Every time I write CoS I have a problem deciding in my head whether to say Crown of Swords [a Wheel of Time book] or Chamber of Secrets. I might have to start writing the second Harry Potter as HPCoS.)
