Surprisingly, I have gotten a ton of knitting and crocheting done so far this month even though work has been crazy. I really attribute this to Nerd Wars challenges. Really any inspiration to get stuff done will get me motivated.
I have mentioned it before but I am working on a set of Harry Potter inspired winter accessories, including a scarf, hat and wristlets in Gryffindor colors. The set is for an avid fan who is going off to college this fall. I initially thought to make it in her college colors but she wanted burgundy and gold.
As the start of the fall term gets closer, I have a deadline to get these items completed. The good news, is that the hat is done and progress was made on everything else this week. (I will do a finished object post when it's all done)
I like working on this but it's a bit daunting. I tend to procrastinate with other projects, at least this time it's apart of the set. I did get to work on it quite a bit these past 2 weeks and I really need to get a move on to get it done. It may be that I have to get one section done a day for a bit.

I am so surprised how easy I found this pattern. I had some modifications to make it a wristlet versus a mitten. This is so comfy and I will probably find it hard not to want to complete the left hand this week.
