ravelry


I think I have a case of the “smokin’ needles”. I just keep banging out FOs left & right. I was checking out my Ravelry Projects page…I have completed 13 projects in the month of July. And there are still three days left!!

I finished my Jaywalker socks. They turned out lovely. I love them. Can’t wait for it to cool down enough for me to actually get to wear them lol. I like the pattern. It did get a little bit tedious which is why I finished so many other projects while doing these. But I you can’t complain about the finished socks. They are fantastic!

After I kitchenered the toe on the second Jaywalker, I immediately cast on for another pair of Thuja socks. This time for my youngest daughter. I finished those in just over 24hrs. I absolutely love that pattern. It works up so quickly and the finished product is just great!

I’m not sure what’s next for me. I know it will be socks, that’s all I have a taste for right now. It will either be Blueberry Waffle Socks or River Rapid Socks (PDF file).

I have my Sockapalooza Four package all ready to go. I can’t wait to send it out!! It occurred to me the other day as I was finishing up shopping for my pal…I have been so involved with this package, the socks, my partner that I completely forgot…someone out there is knitting for me too!! Not only did I get to have fun knitting & shopping for my partner but I get a new pair of socks made especially for me too! Can’t beat that ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m in love with Ravelry ๐Ÿ˜€

I have spent the better part of the last two days playing on the site. Transfering all of my pictures from photobucket over to Flickr (by far the biggest headache), putting in all the finished projects I have pictures of. Crying over the pictures of projects I know I have but cannot find *sob* Updating my queue of projects on my “to knit” list (adding more along the way). The only thing left, I think, is to take pictures of my stashed yarns. Not sure if I will do that. I really have no desire to keep track of what I have…except for maybe sock yarn. Me hearts sock yarn ๐Ÿ™‚

I have done a little knitting too. Today is also a bright & shiny day (as opposed to the dark & rainy days we’ve had all week) so I got outside & took pictures of my progress. I did forget to get pictures of my squares for Rebuilding Greensburg. I’ve got two squares finished & am halfway through square #3. I’ll snap those pics later.

Here is the baby sweater I’ve started. Ideally, I’d like to finish this by the weekend, but I don’t think it’s gonna happen lol. It’s for a co-worker. Her shower is this weekend, I am unable to go because I have to work (everyone else requested it off…someone has to work lol). She’s not due until the end of the month. Plus it’s her first baby, it’ll probably be next month before she has him.

As you can see, I still have a ways to go lol. That is just the hood! The pattern is Easy Baby Cardigan and so far it is easy ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is a progress shot of my mesh bag of my own patterning. I’ll post the pattern when it’s finished. I’m still thinking in my head as I go along how I want the handles to be. But so far, I’m liking how it’s turning out. And it’s BIG! I can fit alotta bananas in this baby ๐Ÿ˜†

Still a ways to go on that one too.
Also in the knitting basket, myย  modified boogaย  bag. I have cast off the edge and picked up stitches for the flap. I sure hope this turns out because I’m totally winging it lol.

In other news, the school year is winding down for the kiddos. My older two are done next week and the younger two are done the week after that. The school really packs in a lotta crap in the last few weeks. Last week we had a concert, an award ceremony, and a fair. My youngest was in the concert, both boys got awards, and we won a racecar rug in a raffle at the fair. They were quite proud:

Don’t mind the look on my youngest’s face. He’s trying to show off the other news around here. He has his FIRST loose tooth ๐Ÿ˜† Yup, whole lotta excitement ’round these parts. This week oldest son has a field trip. Next week they both have field trips (youngest son has TWO!) plus the Flag Day ceremony. The week after they have their school picnic, then the last day of school WHOO HOO! Then we start T-ball season…they are both on the same team this year. Oh boy….

I’m sitting here minding my own business, kind of bored, reading my email and SHA-WING! My Ravelry invite popped into my inbox. Omgosh you have no idea how much I have waited for this to come, how many times I’ve gone through my spam/bulk mail with a fine tooth comb in case it slipped into spamdom when I wasn’t looking.

Wooot!!! Off to explore!
