Well, the term's almost a week old, so I thought I'd give you a couple of announcements.Knitting the Muggle Way
I am slowly working my way through putting videos up for each lesson. I've added videos to the first lesson, so if you haven't started yet, they might be of some help to you. I'll be adding more videos in the coming weeks, so don't be surprised when you see them.
I know some of you have already started on your term project; that's excellent. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you can do. Don't forget: if the suggestions on either project page don't excite you, feel free to inquire about something else. I'll let you in on a little secret: I've yet to refuse a suggestion, so don't be shy. Knitting the Muggle Way: Wearables
Right now, there are no updates, but I'm working on getting your other two lessons and assignments up, as well as making and adding videos. I'm finding that it's easier explaining the various techniques with visuals rather than words, but I'll definitely give you both. Eventually.
That said, everything will be up and ready for you by September 16, as per the Head Office, so don't worry; the wait won't be too long.
Oh, and I have to tell you, I'm finding so many
patterns for Assignments 3 and 4, it's going to be killer trying to narrow them down. So if you're not feeling any of the suggestions, just know that there are loads
of patterns out there. Just be sure to check with me about them -- not because I don't think they'll be appropriate, but because I love knitting patterns! (Just like Dumbledore.
Anyway, those are the updates for right now. Remember, if you have any questions or anything, I'm just an email/HOL message/IRC p2p away!ETA: I'm so not even kidding about the patterns. I have 15 links for things in the round (I stopped after two or three pages of results), and 50 (fifty!!) for colorwork. I can't speak for what you all want to knit, but I've added so many things to my "omgwant" list, it's not even funny. Good times, good times.
