I'm on Ravelry!

I've been invited to join Ravelry, and that's been a lot of fun posting my projects on and seeing who else is making/made the same thing or who else is stashing as much Magpie as I've been. To check it out, go here.

Check out the 3 hats I finished up for the Ships Project. I redid the red part of the slip stitch striped one (it has the vertical stripes); the red on that one is Beaverslide Dry Goods wool/mohair, otherwise the rest of the yarn is Rowan Magpie.




I'm still not a huge fan of doing color knitting; cables and texture and lace will always hold sway in my heart. But I can almost conceive of doing a real Fair Isle project one day. Lord knows I've spent enough time drooling over AS' colorways and I do love color, especially her use of color.

I must have some second sock syndrome; I'm nearly done with the second watermelon sock (past the gusset and about halfway up the sole) and just am not interested in working on it. And I"m nearly done with the Baby's Breath socks I started out of Meilenweit (the pattern is by Jeanie Townsend; her website is called Just Me Jeanie). Instead, I started Evelyn Clark's Lupine socks out of a skein of Sundara sport merino in Blue-Violet over Cotton Candy. This is so much fun to knit; I like her sock patterns a lot. Think there's an Evelyn Clark Sock Pattern fan club out there somewhere. I'll have to join.

My Kate Spades came into the optician's last week. DD#2 says they look better on me than the old Escadas; DD#1 says they look modern, unlike the Escadas. So why do I miss my old Escadas, which didn't even fit as well as the Kate Spades, so much?
