Knit Knit

I got my Ravelry invite yesterday (! ..I thought it'd be weeks) and spent a little time familiarizing myself with the goodies it has to offer. I can understand now why so many people say they could spend hours and hours there. It's very...big. I've already added a few projects to my queue (am I spelling that right?)

I've been in a knitterly mood since before our trip to DC. I needed a good travel project and so I cast on for this:

It's a simple 4x4 rib scarf for Jimmy. I'm making it out of some Caron Simply Soft I had lying around. Blue is his favorite color. Great plane knitting.

I also have been back at it with the sock knitting:

I'm on the home stretch now, just about to the toe decreases. I *understand* socks so much better than I thought I would after just one. It really does just take going through the process to understand what it is you're trying to do.

Lot of blue there.... here's a "not blue" thing. I whipped up one of these for Shepherd last year, and he just loved it. So I made this one for him this Christmas. A brown bone....single crocheted with 2 strands of good ol' red heart super saver. I just kinda make it up as I go along.

Welcome to ravelry.. I sure enjoy it, although my time there is pretty limited. But it has been so handy when researching project ideas and looking for help with patterns!
