I'm still knitting away at my rippled afghan. I have 2 1/2 thick stripes left to knit and then just a lot of finishing. I've been watching the coverage of the RNC, which is confirming to me more and more why I'm proud to be supporting Obama. I'm ready to get started knitting something for me to wear. I realize how long it's been since I've made something for myself that wasn't a scarf, hat, pillow or blanket. Hopefully pics of the completed blanket will be up soon and I'll get started on something fun to wear soon!
I just discovered the Ravelry site, which seems to be already pretty popular, and so fun! I just love the idea of a social networking site that is geared toward knitters and crocheters! You can do just about anything on it: keep inventory of yarn, needles and hooks, updates on projects, friends, patterns, books, groups, it's endless. I'm really excited to keep exploring it.
