Went a little nuts on RAVELRY!

I got my invitation today and set up the bare bones to start. Then I noticed that my knitter friend Jo had a bunch of group badges on her profile and so I started to browse and... I joined 23 groups!!! What am I thinking? I am not going to have time to participate in that many groups...and I thought I was being conservative with my choices. There are so many other groups I could have joined, just lots of great groups and a few scary ones too. I'm going to go through the list again and see if I can make any sacrifices... and I was only able to quit one group so now I am still in 22 groups and I think I may have posted to two of them. Not sure if I'll use the forums much, seems like a little bit of duplication, at least in my newbie eyes...

Today's KIP

I had to take my SUV to the dealership this morning and in anticipation of waiting around for a couple of hours, I brought a cascade fixation sock to work on :) I'll post pictures when it is complete... shouldn't be more than a couple of days from now.

In other news, I lost 4.4 lbs. and my dog is still pretty ill, he is going back to the doctor tomorrow afternoon.

What to do, what to do?

I'm finally all caught up with the Lime & Violet podcast and I think I am going through withdrawal! I'm also up to date with Yarn Thing and Stash and Burn. I think for now I will go through the Socks in the City episodes as the number of hours of Cast On waiting for me is a little intimidating LOL!

FO: Christmas Stocking, 1 down... 4? to go!

Started: 8/29/07
Completed: 9/2/07

Pattern was from KNITTING YEAR-ROUND by Better Homes and Gardens (ISBN 069621655-8), pages 96-98.

Yarn: Red Heart, I didn't have the specific colors called for in the pattern so I made it up from what I have in my stash...and I used almost an entire skein of red... I love it :)

So I don't burn out on these, I plan to finish up the socks I have OTN and work on the crochet blanket. (Plus, I have a bunch of reading to do but I won't talk about that here LOL.)
