Ravelry and On the Needles

I received my invitation to Ravelry yesterday and I have signed on with minimal info at the moment. I will add more this weekend. My name on Ravelry is tnknitter.

On the Needles:

I've cast on for my sister-in-law's holiday present, the Crayon Bathrobe from Knitpicks.
This is a picture from the catalog, she also wanted lime green, just like the picture.

Hopefully mine will look as good. I also have more socks on the needles, I joined a sock-a-long at one of the local LYS' and it meets once a month and you get a different sock pattern and they have wonderful sock yarn. I am using Mountain Colors Bearfoot for this first sock, it is like working with butter. I'm also on target to be a sock test knitter again, just waiting for the pattern. I still have my two socks on two needles that I'm almost finished with. They are business socks, dark navy blue in Jawoll Lang. I also have a couple of baby sweaters on the needles.

Otherwise, I have made a couple of kimonos from the Mason-Dixon Knitting book, one in butter color the other in pink. I still have to have a seaming party :-)

That's it for now.

Ravelry and other misc

It's been nearly a month since I've posted and there are lots of things going on in my life at the moment. The lawfirm I work for is in the process of being absorbed by a bigger lawfirm and they are bringing our two attys and two paralegals over as a team and supposedly we will be operating just as we are now, just under a new name. We'll see. I will be at the new firm on Monday, Oct 1, so changes are coming and I will no longer be working in downtown Nashville. :-( I happen to enjoy working downtown.

As for knitting, I checked my Ravelry standing yesterday, there are only 513 ahead of me now and 19,000+ behind me. I signed on the first of July, so it's taking a little while, but I'm almost there. I know there are bugs but I'm excited nonetheless.

I cast on for a Christmas present for my sister-in-law. I don't think I'm starting early, I just hope I've started early enough and still be able to work on my other items that are on the needles. Pictures to be posted soon. My heartbeat sweater has been in time-out but I will bring it back into the active fold shortly.

That's all for today.
