Ravelry and knitting stuff

Yep, I made it into Ravelry last week. I've been poking around the site, signing up for groups and putting in some of my stash and projects. I have most of my books listed. I didn't realize I had so many. I entered 65 and that's not all of them. It's a great site. I'm Suefaye over there if you want to add me as a friend.

I finished up some mittens for the Cheyenne River Reservation. I wanted to get 7 pairs done but only managed to finish 3 pairs.

Donna had made 3 pairs for me to send to them, too. Don't you love the embroidered flowers on the pink pair!

I bought a baby earflap hat pattern while on the Cape. The son of a friend just became a father for the first time so I made one for his new son.

The pattern is the Sakonnet Bonnet from Designs by Louise. I started it Thursday afternoon while on the Cape and finished it on the first leg of the trip home on Saturday. It was a nice, quick knit. I used Plymouth Encore in denim marl and white.

Now I'm trying to get a pair of socks done to go with the hat. I'm finally past the gussets on the first one. I ripped the heel out twice - once because I made it on the front of the sock and once because the flap wasn't long enough. Hopefully the second one will go more smoothly.

Just one pair shy of the goal you had in mind. 3 is good. Maybe more mittens are beng donated and they only needed 3 from you this year.

How excited are you about Ravelry? Im afraid if I sign up, it will become my life. I will have to live at my computer. Maybe once the chaos has ended over it, than I might join. MAYBE.

The earflap hat is too cute!

Your mittens and hat are great! Last year, I didn't make the mitten challenge, either. This year, I didn't knit even one pair. Maybe next year, eh?

Are you having fun at Ravelry? From everything I've heard, it's a real time-consumer. As christine said, I'd be afraid I'd never get anything else done.
