Cleaning house...

So the idea of this whole Ravelry thing is organization...well that is how i see it anyway. And boy does it want you to be organized. Pictures of my stash? Needle count? how many projects are ACTUALLY on the needles and then those that are stashed with needles and books hiding elsewhere?

Time to face the music!
And a scary piece of music is that.

I have been uploading projects and some yarn pics to my ravelry notebook - and i cannot believe i did not post about this adorable sweater:

fair isle close up
You can view a closup of the little back view here.

Yarn: Regia Jacquard 4 ply in Oslo and Rowan 4ply soft in dark gray (soot?)
Needles: 2.5 for edging and 3mm for the body
Pattern: Candace Baby Cardigan by Holli Yeoh (pattern a day calendar 2005)
Size: 6month to 12 month
Notes: I had all but one sleeve done before the baby was born - but it took me until July to get that last sleeve done. I knit the sleeves in the round instead of flat ( I hate purling).
Since I did not have the perfect gray until after I waned to start this project, I picked up the hem edging once the whole project was sewn together. Also - I purposely did not match the stripes -I like when they match hardly at all or when they are absolutley perfect. I knew I couldn't get absolutley perfect :)

And now to the gratuitous baby pictures:

The sweater is wonderful. So smart to not match the stripes! The dress is amazing! And your little nipper is growing up so fast. Look at that cute face!

oooh how cute (my nephew Jonathan was born Oct. 1st, so I'm really into baby stuff at the moment!) And another thing about ravelry: now that everybody is seeing what's on my needles, I try to finish a project before going on to the next but my queue is neverending :)
The gala dress is gorgeous!

Dear Marietta,
Your gown is gorgeous, of course. And I love the 'do! Handsome date, too.
Glad things are going well for you and your men (though how the little guy has gotten big enough for boots so fast is a complete mystery to me!).
Think of you often, dear.
Best always,
Lynne
