The Knitmare Continues

I felt like I needed to blog but I have nothing really to say on my regular one so I will babble on about my knitting here for a few minutes.

I have been on a tear with the Ballband Warshcloths. I have made five of them recently, took pictures of none of them, but suffice to say that the four I kept make great shower washcloths.

Also I started a crochet throw. It started out as the Rainbow Waves Afghan but the waves looked funny so now the waves are all in a straight line. Which I like better and looks just fine. I am using Vanna's Choice yarn. At first all the colors in that line were dull and boring to me, but then they expanded to a brighter baby line, which is great.

So that's really all that I have been doing, yarn-wise. Not much to get excited about. When I first started knitting I was so enthusiastic about it, but not so much anymore. Still like it, just not eating sleeping and breathing it anymore.

Hope the handful of you that read this are enjoying your craft. Have a great summer!

A New Post!

I was thinking about this blog and how I totally neglect it when I shouldn't, if for no other reason than it is called Knitmare On Elm Street which I think is the best blog name ever, knitting or otherwise.

Part of the reason I don't post here is that I got into Ravelry and so that became where all the knitting stuff went.

Another reason is that I haven't been knitting too much lately. I am currently working on another Brooklyn Tweed Noro Scarf which is turning out great and my plan is to enter it in the fair and win a ribbon. Which isn't hard since they seem to give everyone a ribbon. But I plan on my ribbon to be blue. HA! I need to get one more skein of Noro Kureyon to continue with the scarf, and my favorite LYS just closed forever and now I am forced to go elsewhere and their hours aren't as good so I am not getting there. Maybe this weekend.

I am reorganizing my office and I just put away all my yarn, the dishcloth cotton outnumbers the yarn 2 to 1. I really should get cracking on some dishcloths! Like about 100.

I also have been sporadically working on my Babette Blanket, which is crochet. But my heart is not in it for long periods of crocheting.

Anyway, if anyone still reads this, now you know what's what. Happy knitting, people!
