I am just a gal who loves to knit and spin in my spare time and thought it would be nice to share my projects with everyone.

Ribbed Lace Socks

I finally recieved my invitation to Ravelry on November 1st. It took a whole month which isn't really as long as I expected since there was 16,000 ahead of me. It is pretty cool and I have spent several hours this morning trying to get pictures up and trying to also recall old project information. I have dial up internet at home so it is a long process. But it seems worth it. I am using the name loves2knit if you want to look me up.

I started another pair of socks from one of my favorite books "Sensational Knittted Socks by Charlene Schurch. It is called Ribbed Lace and I am using Ranco sock yarn by Araucania. I didn't realize until I got it home that it is not a superwash. Boy I sure hope I remember to put these aside and not throw them in the washer.


Falling Water Lace Scarf

I started this lace scarf thursday. It is called Falling Water Lace Scarf by Bonnie Sennot. I am using my own handspun that is super soft but I didn't realize until I started knitting how unevenly I spun it. I am not sure how the pictures show up but the color is different with lavender, gold, yellow and orangy tones. It was in a laps form and hand dyed by Leah I would guess it to be anywhere from fingering to dk weight with even bits of worsted. Now that's variety! :) So far I really like this scarf because it is so soft with unique color.
