Uh oh, look who started another project. . . .

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! :)

  2. oh man, I am going to have to do that scarf. It is so pretty. Glad to see you scrapped, and it is okay to be behind. I am never going to catch up. LOL. oh well.

  3. I waited forever to sign up for Ravelry because I thought it was just another facebook. Sounds like it's more of a huge black hole, and I can hardly wait!

    The scarf looks interesting, nice yarn colors!

  4. I am in the 10,000 number for Ravelry so that gives me time to get a bit organized.

    Yeah...right.

    I've rediscovered Knitty myself and am having a ball planning my next projects.

  5. Ooh, I like the colors you are using for your Argosy. Such a nice pattern and one I've wanted to make for myself. Thanks for reminding me that I want to knit that this winter. I think I'll have to add this to my "queue" on Ravelry so I'll remember it!

    You know there's nothing wrong with taking away time from knitting for other hobbies. I was always a big reader before I took up knitting and over the years, reading has taken a back seat. I would still read a book here and there, but never with the all-consuming power that I used to. This summer, I really got back into reading in a big way. I've been loving it and happy to incorporate reading into my hobby life again.
