One project down-another going!

Just got back from a weekend in New York with our son for his 25th birthday. On the flight out, I finished my Froebe Fibers socks. Done in Caribbean Breeze, they are a great combination of light bluish green and yellow.

So I needed to start something new while flying. I got out my other Froebe Fibers yarn and began another pair of socks. Going to do a different pattern. I want the pooling effect I saw on The Yarn Harlot Yarn Harlot

I get home and am reading my blogs only to find out that the Saturday I was in New York, right outside of the city was the big yarn and knitting gathering called New York Yarn and Sheep festival in Rhinebeck, New York. I am going to have to investigate this for next year. Several of the blogs I read were there.

I made it!

I am so excited...I made it into Ravelry
As I am learning, Ravelry is a website that helps you get your projects, yarn, needles, etc. organized. It is forcing me to do something I have needed to do for years...figure out the heck I have up in my "bonus room" that I can actual create something with!!!
My next tackle is my STASH! Ugh...that one I am not looking forward to...it will take some time.
What do you do with this:

This is insane!!! Oh well...gotta it done.

Got away from me!!

I can't believe it has been almost a month since I last posted! Time just got away from me! I went to Napa with friends and came home and did not pick up my knitting for a week. Now, those who know me, know that that is unheard of!! Put although knitting needles were not in my hands in one since...yarn was in another since! Yes, that is a 1500 hundred piece puzzle of yarn!! It has been amazing to put together and I am probably half way through. I am a puzzle freak! Love to do them. I just wish I could knit at the same time!

I have actually picked my second sock back up only to realize I had not been doing the pattern right and had to take out about 12 rows. UGH. I'm just glad I found it when I did...it is very fixable.

Ok...but to knitting/yarning!
