Ok, I have been feeling guilty about not updating this blog, and now I"m starting to get hassled about it, so here you go! I've taken the summer off from knitting (mostly) and am just now feeling the knitting fever again so I have all kinds of projects planned. But during the summer I was working on some scarves. For Young Women's we were working on a service project and our goal was for each YW and leader to knit 5 scarves each to donate to a shelter in the fall. We don't have a very large YW's group but we were able to make about 45 scarves of all shapes and sizes (I'm at work, but just realized I'll have to edit this post and add that picture later). It was pretty great how had they all worked on accomplishing this goal. Now we are teaching them to crochet baby hats for the hospitals.
Right now I've got a few projects in the works that I can't show yet because they will be Christmas presents but I'm working on a mystery sock Knit-Along. "What's that?" you're saying? Well, I go to this website called ravelry.com (probably as often as I do facebook) which is an online community for knitters/crocheters/spinners, etc. There are patterns and forums and more and recently I've discovered some fun groups. One is a Mystery knit along for a sock pattern. You get only part of a portion of the pattern each week, and you don't have any idea what it will look like so I'm just starting the cuff. I'll post some pictures to show the progress.
Anyway, that's a little bit of what I'm up to these days. I'll try really hard to be more regular with my blog posts!
