I'm Ravelrized!

Woo-hoo - was ever-so-patiently waiting for my Ravelry invite (ok - not so patiently), when I saw a posting on the Lime 'n Violet Message Board about how you can check your place in the queue. To my delight, I had been sent an invite FIVE WEEKS AGO, which was apparently filtered to spam. The brilliant Casey & Jess built the feature to automatically resend the invite and I will start adding my 'stuff' soon. It's daunting to think about entering all the info (vague recollection of uploading all my CDs for iTunes!), but it will be such fun to be part of the exponentially growing community that is Ravelry!!

While waiting I did finish the 'experiment bag' and have cast on the Landscape bag from KnitPicks. I still like the bag, but have found the pattern to be very 'fiddly' and quite annoying. The design requires constantly tightening and loosening stitches to make sure the color changes at the right spot. on. every. row. I will definitely NOT make this bag again!

And I completed some finishing... for some reason I delay my toes (love the Kitchener grafting though!) until I have several pairs.
Below L-to-R: Cobblestone, Lacy Rib from Sensational Socks, misplace cable pattern, and Cookie A's Monkey socks.

They look good on my long-limbed model, don't they?!

Happy Knitting -

Love your experiment bag! And your socks! Are you not the long legged model? I'm so proud to say I have a JavaNutKnits original scarf of my very own! Can't wait to see your landscape bag when it's complete!
