I signed up for Ravelry a few weeks ago. I just checked my status and
I am #45083 on the list.
2392 people are ahead of me.
9450 people are behind me.
78% of the list has been invited so far
<Sigh> I guess my invite will arrive soon enough. In the meantime I'm knitting a scarf out of lotion. Okay, not lotion, Karabella's Boise. OH. MY. GAH. 50% Merino 50% Cashmere. So soft and silky, it certainly feels like lotion. Handling it is a dream. Makes my commute ever so pleasant.
I haven't abandoned the tweed sweater. Just finished the front and I'm due to cast on a sleeve either tonight or tomorrow. I'm considering knitting both sleeves at the same time on a single circular, but I don't think it will be worth the aggrivation of constantly untangling the yarn. Don't forget I have three feline assistants for any yarn project. I may work the sleeves the same way I do socks - cast them on separately and alternate. Eh, we'll see.
Waiting in the wings is a baby surprise jacket for my niece. Looks like a peach ruffle right now. I want to get little pearl buttons for it. I even went to a nearby notions store but was so completely sidetracked by the overwhelming cuteness of these pacifier buttons, that I forgot to get them. I'm using Dawn's cheat sheet because Elizabeth Zimmerman's pithy instructions are a little confusing in places. Oh and here's a post that will show you what a BSJ looks like in its early stages as well as how it comes together in the end. Thank goodness for the innernets!
