Joined Ravelry at Last

I got my invitation to join Ravelry last week. I've known about it for a while but for some reason didn't "get it". I do now. I've been slowly exploring and finding more to like each time. I am particularly impressed by some of the groups, such as Knitting Genealogists. I didn't know there was a niche that small, even on the Internet. That group is one way to describe me. It goes withou saying that the Ravelry is another " go to" for my virtual yarn-creativity-pattern fix.

In the meantime, I am using great discipline by finishing my current project, an Alien Illusion Scarf for my son, before going on to the next project. It is two-thirds done and killing me. I desperately want to start something else. My workspace (read entire house) is covered with stuff I want to start. This summer's main task is to actually knit scarves and such to have ready BEFORE it gets cold. I've completed a grey wook scarf for my husband and a pair of mittens that will never be worn. (photos later) I still need to do a scarf for another son and then on to the experimental stuff!
