Until a couple of days ago.
I logged on and voila! An amazing world opened up to me. A world where I can keep track of my crochet hooks and knitting needles. A world of yarn stash catalogs and project progress updates. All this and so much more. I now know what you all knew this all along. Ravelry is the best place on the planet...(or the internet, to be more precise).
And the coolest thing I found on Ravelry? I click on a pattern I see and it immediately jumps into my queue. I can create a project queue that could potentially take three lifetimes to complete. Isn't that amazing?
Now Ravelry does have a downside. A bummer. DRATS! An "Ugggg". I must now face my WIP pile. Every time I log on. Worse yet is when I upload the pictures of all my WIPs. Not a pleasant sight, let me tell you.
Baby Bloomers during which I ran out of yarn before I could finish the second leg. Now I shall have to frog.
The skirt I was in the middle of designing when I decided to take my hiatus last winter from designing.
A dress called Angel Blessings I began designing about 3 years ago and never finished. Somehow it managed to bury itself in my workbasket and I totally forgot it existed until this morning during my WIP digout mission.
Angel Traditions dress I started to sell in my Etsy shop. Once I realized it would take me a month of steady crocheting to finish the christening length, I laid the dress in my workbasket where it too tunneled to the bottom.
I really should weave in those ends and call this done.
Sheer Witchery. I don't want to talk about it.
You all know the story about this one so I don't think I need to talk about it. I don't want to talk about it anyways. *eye roll*
A knitted sweater I started a couple of years ago and ran out of yarn. Sheesh! Why do I do that?
Remember the sweater I started a few months ago? Well, I didn't like it so I am frogging away and knitting up a simple garter stitch scarf/stole. I think I have enough yarn to make three of these suckers. I lost my motivation for this project at some point and now it glares at me with evil eyes every time I enter my craft room.
A cute little cabled purse I am working on. (yes...I AM working on it! Just not this exact moment.)
A gorgeous little dress I am working on this blizzardy weekend. I needed a project to work on in case the power went out. Well, I got a little too excited and the power didn't go out yet, so I began working on it anyways. I am almost done with the skirt and will work on the bodice today. Its a little dress for Chloe. Elenka found on Knitty. I am using Tahki Stacy Charles Cotton Classic.
I should probably get off the computer and go finish a project or two. Uggg. Why do I do this to myself? Thank you Ravelry for providing a method of helping me get out of this WIP mess I find myself in.
