I'M IN!!


How cool is that? Just been poking around, added a couple of friends, a pattern, a couple of groups. It's amazing to me that there are so many people involved in knitting and crocheting that we could support so massive an online community.

The best for me so far is checking out other people's thoughts on yarns and patterns. But I'm really just getting started.

Are you there?

ACK! Where did it go???

I lost 6 months. I know they're around here somewhere. Yesterday it was March, and now it's the end of September?? When did that happen??? Ok, I've been riding a lot, I have 7200+ miles on that less than a year old motorcycle! Ok, I'll admit I know I'm getting older and more forgetful, but somehow, somewhere, the summer has disappeared! If anyone knows where I put it, please let me know!

Have you ever knitted a project made a mistake, then made it a pattern change (repeated the mistake so it matched) only to find out that the pattern change is really still a mistake and you're gonna have to frog anyway, and now not just once but several times? I did it. And I did it on a baby sweater that should have been done last month. (NOT my fault, I misplaced that month). So this weekend I'm frogging and finishing up the baby sweater. It's sized for 3-6months, so I don't think the little chickie will have outgrown it yet, but I'd best hurry. Here's what the pattern looks like. It's cute, a picot edge (too fussy), and will be a nice gift once I pull out the ooops and finish those parts correctly.
