Rock n' Roll, Ravelry, and Project Restlessness












Share Ross came to visit Knitique last week, (pictured above with Danielle the shop owner), and we all had a great time learning to drop stitches (on purpose!), making new friends, and getting to see the items from the book up close and personal. We had our very own model, Alicia, a daughter of one of the Knitique employees, put on the items and give us a mini-fashion show. Everything looked like it was custom made for her, and she was so sweet to try everything on.
I got my invitation from Ravelry this past Sunday! I'm crazy about this site. The information, organization, and community it plans on providing is amazing! It is in the beta stage now, but you can still send them an email to join. Join, join, join, you know you want to! It just seems that there may be a bit of a waiting list.
My photo taking has been lacking as of late, and it's not that I don't have a lot to show you, I do. Let's see, I received a most rockin' package from 62 Cherry that I want to share. I have a lace shawl that's ready to be photographed as well as some "other" projects I've been working on. As soon as I get a spare moment and good lighting I promise to shoot away. Anyway I'll leave you with a project from Punk Knits that knits up in a about a night and a half. It is the Madlad hat which can be knit up as beret like mine, or you can add a crochet brim for more of a newsboy look.

Looks like a grrreat time!

Glad to hear you're enjoying Ravelry. (I'm still waiting on my invite, but fear I signed up way late in the game a month or so ago.)

Rock on!

I saw Share this weekend! It was lots of fun -- I love the holes on purpose! If only all my other holes were that on purpose...

I bet the mini-fashion show was great. How fun to see the designs actually in person/on person.

I am still on the waiting list for Ravelry. Congrats. I await my invitation, which I know will come in time.
