Man, Ravelry is ruining my life. Seriously. I keep searching and looking at people's stuff and it is making me want to quit my job, buy as much yarn as I can and knit a bunch of cool stuff all day long.
Last night, I started this:It's the Argosy Scarf from Knitty. It is one of those patterns I never thought of knitting before and then I stumbled upon it on Ravelry, and all of a sudden, I had to make one. This pattern is a little challenging for me so far (there was from frogging and reknitting last night), but I think a couple more repeats and I will be ok. I just love how it looks! The yarn is the Cherry Tree Hill I bought at Fringe last week!
That really has been all the knitting I have done in the last few days (other than knitting a dishcloth in one night for the Dish Rag Tag, which I neglected to take a picture of because I was trying so frantically to finish it/mail the box that I forgot, but hopefully Alaina, the women next to get the box will photograph it, but I digress).
Anyway, part of the reason that I did not knit much this weekend, was due to the scrapbooking party I went to on Friday:I really had kind of forgotten how much I like to scrapbook. I hardly ever do it anymore (evidence by the fact that I am still working on a scrapbook of the great Yellowstone road trip of two years ago) because I am knitting all the time. I think I may have to put down the knitting needles soon for about a week to try to finish this up (yeah, right, who am I kidding, there will always be the knitting).
Finally, I have some new yarn on my Etsy site:
I am calling this one Fruit Punch. Alex actually thought of the name. I couldn't come up with anything good, but I love it. I actually have two skeins of this stuff! If you would like to see more pictures you can do so here.
Anyway, that's all I have for now. If you have not yet done so, please sign up for the blog contest. Click here for details.
Happy Knitting! :)
