A place for my knitting ramblings ...


Next on the needles?

I am loving Ravelry (as previously mentioned). I am putting all sorts of things in my queue. It is so fantastic to look at a pattern that's cute and be able to organize it electronically to revisit at a later date. There are so many patterns that I have looked at over the past few years that I printed out or tried to make a mental note about. All that did was clutter up my house and my brain. So, in addition to the many benefits, Ravelry has also helped me de-clutter (a little bit at least). YAY!

I am also loving working in a library! We just got a new knitting book...

I have looked through the other yarn girls' offerings and thought they were cute. But this book has lots of patterns that look really cute and totally knit-able. I have been wanting a knit a sweater for a while, but haven't found the right pattern for me. There are multiple sweaters in this book that appeal to me. So. Excited!

Top picks include:
  • Olivia's Sweatshirt
  • Maximum Wearibility sweater
  • Now or Never sweater
  • Becoming the Bag Lady purse
Let's see if I actually produce any FOs from this book. I am seriously contemplating ordering the Merino Frappe as suggested for the Olivia Sweatshirt. So, what's next on your needles?

It has some fun patterns, doesn't it? I did a book review a few weeks back. I like the simplicity and wearability of the patterns :)

Have a happy weekend~
