November 2007 Archives

November 4, 2007


I did it!


I knit my first sock. As I posted before it's Thuja from Knitty and I think it was a smart idea for a first sock (if I do say so myself!) It's knit thicker than your average sock so I wasn't wrestling with teeny needles.

It fits!

Christmas knitting!

I guess I'm on a dpn kick after those socks because I cranked out a pair of mittens.


They are the Tweedy Mittens from kpixie that are found here. I chose to leave off the stripes and work with a skein of purple-y Manos del Uruguay (color 117) and I really love them. They will be a holiday gift for the Scooter's babysitter. He loves wearing them!

As I continue to get my Ravelry notebook together, I find more pictures. Here is a shot of my mini Clapotis done in Artyarns Supermerino.

Ravelry is B-A-D!

Since getting my Ravelry invite I have spent many hours looking around the patterns, forums, yarn info, stashes, etc. I knew it would be a time suck and that's okay. What I didn't realize was how it would send me into this tailspin of "I want, I need, I have to have this!" I have bought more yarn since joining Ravelry than ever before, been bitten by the sock knitting bug and have more patterns waiting in the wings than I ever used to. A glimpse into some of my purchases:

For a sweater for the Scooter:


For Jaywalkers:


I also bought patterns for the Imogen Jacket by Perl Grey and the Mosaic Mitts from last year's Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts.

I'm eyeing the Monster Hat Kits at Insubordiknit and have asked Mr. Starfish for some Cashmerino and Lorna's Laces for Christmas.

I used to be such a practical knitter, buying yarn for the next project or two only.... I blame Ravelry.
