Just another rambling day.

Well I've heard a few people getting reinstated, but I'm still waiting to hear back. A week without Ravelry. I have a couple projects done that I am very upset that I can't post.

Decided to start a new quick knit with some Royal Bamboo that I had gotten from my momma. I'm made a cute little bolero/shrug and the colors are amazing. I was a little upset that there was a knot in each ball I used and one even had two knots! I wrote Plymouth Yarn and received an email that said I need to contact the LYS where it was purchased. Not an option, it was purchased at a booth in a local fair in North Dakota while she was visiting last fall. Not that I'm really looking for anything other than them to take note of the problem. I still LOVE that yarn!!

I'm starting to hear back from the ladies that purchased from the shop and I'm thrilled with all the positive feedback. The little rose boxes are a huge hit and I'm thinking about putting the pattern up on Etsy. They are definitely a new standard with small items like my stitch markers and key chains.

Well I'm off to worry about things unrelated to knitting and Ravelry, such as, oh real life. Not my favorite subject though.

Electric Sunset up on Etsy!!

Hmm, bad grammer first...So I just noticed some improper use of "your" and "you're." My appologies, I'm very embarassed...

In other news, the first skein of the new Landscapes Lace in "Electric Sunset" is already gone on Etsy, I was amazed. I relisted, so it's available. The very first skein (shown in my last post) is being knitted into the Adamas shawl, and I noticed that it was striping more than having a gradual change, so before dyeing the next one, I changed the method a just little and it worked fantastically!! Here is the pic...

I also put up a smaller (400 yard) skein...
That one is a little brighter than the pic shows, but yummy none the less!

Other than the store update, I have been looking for the next item to knit that I will obsessively work on until it's finished. I'm not loving anything that I'm working on at the moment, and that is a super long list. H's window shawl went from creeping along, to a quick speed up to a dead halt. I do not have quite enough to finish the way I want, and I'm debating how to fix that. The Adamas shawl is just slow, and even though I am anxoius for the next color to come in (I've reached the deep blue), it seems too much like work. I have two sweaters I'm working on, several orphan socks and some cashmere that needs to become something for my neighbor, plus lots of "I should knit something for them because they are so sweet" projects. I have 2 of 8 oz of Crazy Monkey spun, and the Twisted is on the Lendrum right now, with several fibers waiting in line. I have the rest of the Landscapes lace colorways to dye, which if they take off, I may spend most of my spare time doing that, hmm I think I need more hours in the day. Yep lots of stuff!
