Ravlery is taking over my life. I am completely ADDICTED and I hope I stay that way. I have been making new friends and sharing ideas and tips about a lot of things that I love.
Also, I have joined many groups including the Diana Gabaldon Outlander group. Through this group I will be participating in the DiA swap and I CAN'T WAIT! The Outlander books were my most favorite series ever next to HP and Twilight that is.
Last weekend I worked desperately to finish up some of my projects from the pile of WIP's. Unfortunately I ran out of yarn for most of the projects that I was working on and couldn't tear myself away from the needles long enough to go to the store and get more yarn.
I also forgot to mention that I recieved the Pattern-A-Day calendar for christmas. I LOVE IT! I am going to try to make all of the projects since most of them are small quick items. So far I have made the soap sack, and I am working on the Guitar Man socks. I hope to post photos of these things.
Goals for the weekend:
-Go to the store and get yarn to finish WIP's
-Take Photos of projects to post for all to see.
One final note, I have been pondering the idea of starting my own yarn shop......this is the reason that I must be dreaming. With the economy the way it is, I don't know that I would ever be able to get this off the ground. Maybe yarn shops are only meant for those of us who have spent years in the coorporate world or at other taxing jobs and have finally had enough. I have only been out of school for a few years now. I also have considered possibly creating the yarn store as an online buisness, that way I could do it as a part time venture. If anyone out there has any suggestions, or helpful words by way of constructive criticism I would love to have a chat.
I hope everyone is staying warm and enjoying the winter!
