This week, as you know, I’ve been very much into finishing off old projects and clearing up my Ravelry profile. Some of those poor hibernating projects have been sitting patiently for almost a year waiting for their turn in the spotlight, with hardly a word of complaint, so it’s about time they got some love.
The first project to finish seemed obvious. Last year I was an active member of the New Knitters group on Ravelry and learned a lot from asking silly newb questions there. We also did monthly KALs, it would be neckwear one month and hats another and one fateful month it was . . . socks.
This morning I was looking at my Ravelry wish list and wishing I could afford to buy everything on there, print out all the patterns, add them to my pile of knitting patterns on the floor and roll around in them. While I can’t afford to do that, I’ve decided to get one lucky winner a step closer to that dream with a celebratory giveaway.
The amount of projects I’ve started lately is beginning to get slightly alarming, but do not be afraid. I’ve now officially run out of yarn money so these will have to keep me going until my birthday at the end of May! Unless anyone wants to send me yarn in return for website design, which I would totally be open to.
Most people stumbling across this blog will know it already; Ravelry has a group for everything. EVERYTHING. So I shouldn’t have been surprised to find a group full of volunteer designers who enjoy nothing more than giving up their spare time to create pretty banners, badges and ads for other group owners.
My friends think I’m weird. In fact, I am weird. My weirdness takes many forms, but one specific example is that I love to untangle things and find it remarkably soothing to sit for an hour undoing knots in wires or rewinding a spool of thread that got everywhere in my sewing box.
