Just a quick update

Obviously, the blog for this knit-a-long has been long forgotten. I'm sorry.

But we are alive and well on Ravelry
I invited you to join us there if you are already in and your more then welcome to join when the site is out of beta and open to all as well.

It's been fun and I look forward to seeing you all soon.

How is it going?

So, how is the project going for all of you who have not been able to join us on Ravelry yet?

The group is booming as we have 24 members (including all who were already members) and are learning new things with our lace and about ourselves.

We have had different tips and tricks to be thrown our way and I am enjoying seeing all the pictures that are being put up.

We may not be the most active group but we are a strong one.

I look forward to hearing from everyone here as well.

I decided to change my project because I wasn't able to get gauge with the yarn I chose and I was wanting to work more with the yarn than the project. This time I'm doing lace crochet as I have done (and am doing again) Convertible from our first month. You can see pictures of my progress on my main blog in a post that I put up tonight.

Looking forward to hearing from you all!

Up and Running

We now have a group up on Ravelry. I hope that all of you there already will join us and I'm looking forward to all of you who will be receiving your invitations and joining the group there ASAP.

The group can be found under the name For Me?! and my user name there is Fraggle.

For those unable get to us there at this time, I still look forward to seeing how your doing by blog.

Our November through January 31st project is lace and I'm planning on doing the Branching Out scarf from Knitty (are you sensing a pattern here) from yarn I bought at SAFF from Knitting Notions!

Hi all, just a quick note. As most of you know from the email I sent, I want to set up this KAL on Ravelry as I believe I will better manage it there.

We have the three interested and I will be setting it up within the next 48 hours.

Looking forward to seeing you all there and having all the details.

And don't worry, if you haven't been invited in yet I'll still keep you updated through here!

Been Awhile

I realized that I haven't posted in quite awhile. So here is my very slow progress on my Plain Vanilla Sweater. I knew this one would take lots more time than the Clapotis. I'm toying with the idea of changing the top, but I've got plenty of time to decide.

I'm using Knit Picks Crayon. It's nice to work with and really has a nice feel knit up. I am knitting in the round--I just couldn't face all that plain knitting TWICE!

I mentioned the Clapotis--I finished it in June and wore it to our reunion. I let it rest for a few weeks and then decided to frog it. I really do like the yarn and am planning to do some swatching to find what might be a better pattern for it. So it is now residing in my stash in a big, giant ball of blue and green lushness!

Hope everyone's projects are going well! Keep Knitting!

Will be put up later today. I have appointments to keep preventing me from doing so at this time.

I will also share my progress today!
