Oooh eeee Ooooh ah ah ting tang walla walla bing bang...

Sooo I'm so sorry I haven't written in a while. Things at work have become just that hectic. I won't go into it...way to much to go over.
Plus the move to ny is currently underway-ish.

I've started mittens, which are over at ravelry, I'll update with photos as soon as I'm on my regular computer (I'm on my work one right now...woot!).

I've also had a birthday :D! Yay me! I'm now 22 as of 5:03pm 1/13.
For my birthday the misses got me 3 needlework books and a crap load of yarn. Isn't that sweet! I got Stitch 'n Bitch: Happy Hooker, Plus Size Crochet, and Stitch n' Bitch Nation. I'm currently working on the PDQ hat pattern from SnT: Happy Hooker. It's turning out beautifully, and was extremely easy and quick to make. Instead of their colors, which are quite cute and I will probably do one in that color as well, I decided to use Chocolate Brown, Orange, and a multi (brown, tan, blue). I will definitely add photos when it's done. I've worked it up so fast I didn't even have a chance to put it up on Ravelry yet. Blaaah.

So other than that things are going very smoothly. I finished the Lacey Shell Scarf that I had started, as well as another Flapper hat for the misses. So yes I have been busy with my skill as well, definitely not neglecting it :P. Although...I have sort of neglected the mittens.. you know me and's taking alot of time, which isn't a bad thing, I just feel like ... "Is it turning out ok" sort of thing. I'll get over that, it's why I tried the mittens in the first place: TA DOW HOW YA LIKE ME NOW!? :P

  1. First, let me say that I’m a huge fan of your posts. You’re on my List Of Ravelry Favorites, and I often share your stuff with my knitting friends.

    I am writing everyone on my Favorites List with a couple of questions. If you can answer them for me, it would be a HUGE HUGE HUGE favor. Really HUGE.

    Thing is, I am writing a piece on Ravelry for my college magazine. Topic is WHY Ravelry is such a huge success. I need opinions from fellow Ravelers like you to back up this claim I am making.

    These are the questions:

    1) Why did you choose to join Ravelry?

    2) How did you learn about Ravelry?

    3) What does Ravelry give you that other sites don’t?

    4) Absolutely anything else you’d like to share with me on this subject.

    My quandary is this: I love the site and come here almost every week to look for knitting tips and ideas. (I haven’t joined yet, as I am too shy to talk of my own work…)

    I want to understand why others do the same. Each person must have his or her own reason and I am very curious to understand this trend.

    Once I write the piece, I intend to send it across to Bob the dog. Maybe, he will post it on the site to encourage newcomers or even use it for other promotion purposes.

    Thank you in advance

    Keep writing, keep sharing, keep creating
    Warmest regards
