Week 8, let's be honest, AUGUST has proved to be incredibly busy! And progress on my list has been minimal. I think part of it is due to entering a couple swaps where a homemade item was required, which is totally fine and fun! But I am swearing that off until I have made better progress on my list!
This week I made some headway on the first of at least 3 Secret Christmas Scarves...which really, all recipients know about them, and at least one reads this blog, so no more secret. They are 3 Harry Potter scarves in Gryffindor colors! The legacy must live on!
As you can see I am not very far but these should go relatively fast after I finish those swap projects. Here is my complete YOP list update:

Here's to another month that is hopefully more productive! Did I mention that I realllly want to re-learn crochet??
