Oh yeah, baby



Isn't that picture AWESOME??? Aunt Elisabeth let me borrow one of her knitting books and it had this fabulous photo in it. (The book for those of you who are interested is Sunset Knitting Techniques and Projects circa 1978). The dude's sweater actually says "Birds Fly Over The Rainbow" and he's rockin' it hard.

Yes, I finally did get signed on to Ravelry... yay! Thanks to everyone who offered to be my friend there so I don't feel like a total loser :). I could spend hours there, like I need ANOTHER internet addiction *insert eyeball roll*. It's like Facebook, another time sucking vortex I have to be careful about. I've been chasing the kids around so much these past few weeks that when I went to cast on for a new project (a scarf, nothing to get too excited about it), I realized that I couldn't do it at all, so I pulled out this handy book. I love that styles change but the directions on how to cast on are still the same then as they are today!

So I'm going to get my groove on this weekend and get those needles clicking again....

What are you, my dear friends, doing?

Rock on, Rainbow Woman! :-) I'm putting my knitting needles away for a while, and considering embroidery needles instead. We'll see how it goes. I'd LOVE a ravelry invite, though :-)

LOL! Loving the rainbow vibes.
I am new to knitting and trying my first real project (other than purses big and small)... a doll. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vl_other_1&listing_id=21347192
I will need lots of encouragement along the journey!
Clickty clack!

I think the one in the middle is a tall woman. Feminine face, no?
