Yes, I started another project, and I decided I'm ok with that.
I've been trying to finish up some of my many works in progress, but then I slipped and started another one. And I decided it's ok. This is my "fun", so why ruin it by insisting on self-control? There is enough of that in the rest of my life!
So, please let me introduce you to my new WIP:
- Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Yarn in Pioneer, two hanks wound into one skein
- Pattern: Victorian Lace Today "Scarf with a Wide and Handsome Border for a Mantel Drape form Weldon's, Series 6, Volume 2, 1887"
- Needle: 4mm wood circular
Thanks for the yarn, Jen!!
On another topic, I received my invitation to Ravelry about a week ago. Honestly I was a little bit afraid to sign in - after all I've read about it, I feared it would be too much fun and all I need is another time sink in my life!! On my first visit I managed to simply dip my toe in the water. I signed in, made a simple profile page, and looked around. Wow. There sure is a lot there. Not sure which of the many features will become my favorites, but I'll start sampling soon. Any suggestions?
Pioneer's lookin' good. Is that going to be a wearing scarf or a drapey mantel scarf?
As of today I'm only 10043 people away from being invited into Ravelry! I'm most interested in their stash tracking features and how a Ravelry account might interact with my FurrPurls blog. But of course I'd be thrilled to hear about anything you learn!
