Gettings things done

I have finally joined HPKCHC (HP Knitting and Crochet House Cup with HP being Harry Potter) on Ravelry. I found this group several years ago, joined and then left. The rules seemed complicated, the requirements strict, and I wasn’t interested in that. Last Spring, I searched for HP related groups on Ravelry again and found several that were interesting, this one included. I joined two and started playing along in the game that had less stringent guidelines. After playing for 9 months I began to see the beauty in the complicated, strict requirements of the first game I found and left the small one for the larger one. I have not been sorted into the game yet, that will happen in March I believe and I’ll play officially in April.

The game is a fun way to motivate myself to start and finished every month, though there are ways to turn in works-in-progress for partial credit. I started playing in the middle of January and am planning to post at least once a month with my finished projects and badges to accompany them.
