Finally, some fiber mail – but not for Kiri

Posted by Gina on Wednesday, April 23, 2008

Kiri is going to be on the back burner for a while. Not that I’ll never knit it, just not in the next few months. While browsing patterns, I spotted the Bed of Roses shawl. It called my name. I ignored it for the longest time, but it kept calling. I have to knit it.

No, really… I have to!

It’s one of those patterns that can’t be ignored. You know the feeling, right? The yarn is on its way to my house as we speak (for real, this time). Even though it has ‘shawl’ in the name, I think Bed of Roses will be the perfect blankie to cuddle with while watching reruns of Quantum Leap and X-Files.

OH, speaking of X-Files!!! There’s Ravelry group for X-Files fans, complete with favorite quotes, XF2 spoilers, Lone Gunmen discussions, X-Files inspired knits, and more!

That settles it; heaven is on the internet. I call it Ravelry.

Today is Sweater Day, apparently.

Posted by Gina on Thursday, March 20, 2008

In honor of Mister Rogers, RIP, the sweater gallery. Being a knitter and a loyal Mister Rogers fan (even into adulthood), I don’t know how this ‘holiday’ escaped me until now. And, of course, there’s a Ravelry group for everything. I present to you the Sweater Day Group on the Rav!

I’m a dork. I’m a knitter. I’m in Heaven!

Posted by Gina on Thursday, December 20, 2007

I finally found it: a Ravelry group devoted to LOTR! There’s a whole entire thread devoted to LOTR inspired knits. A whole entire thread!!! that has given me something that countless hours of Googling has not been able to produce. Hobbit and elf inspired sweaters, scarves, and dishcloths. A “one ring” scarf with Elvish writing that reads “One Ring to Rule them All, One Ring to find them, One Ring to Bring them All and in the Darkness bind them”….. and many more LOTR knitted goodies!

*faints*

Pay It Forward and get handmade goodies

Posted by Gina on Tuesday, December 11, 2007

I’m participating in PIF via Extreme Adventures in Motherhood and her post on Ravelry

Here are the rules:

The first three to comment will receive a handmade gift from me some time in the next 365 days. The only requirements to participate are that you: 1) Have a blog of your own, and 2) Make the PIF promise on your blog. Please make sure that the link to your blog is in your comment or that the name attached to your comment links to your blog, and please include a link back to this blog post (these, as I’ve gathered from Ravelry, are the PIF rules)

The gift you get from me will not necessarily be knitting related, but it could be! It will probably take a couple months as I’m out of money right now, but I’ll get your gift to you as soon as I can.
