A Rocky March At Hogwarts

Alas, March has been a tough one for this little Gryffindor. The passing of my MIL, changes on the farm, grades, and end of quarter have all kept my knitting time to a minimum...and to make matters worse, I didn't even really feel like knitting. Not a good sign for me. Here is one of my completed objects...the others were mix and match dish cloths and socks which I couldn't even seem to count the stitches correctly.
