I have a ravelry account!
This is quite exciting. All kinds of free patterns, and a bunch of experts at my fingertips. Fantastic!
I am so inspired to knit all kinds of cool things right now. I just need to finish this purse, and then I can get started for real.
My username is Psykiapa, check it out if you’re on ravelry! I don’t have much up there – I’m far more experienced with sewing than with knitting, and knitting takes a while – but hopefully soon I’ll have more projects.
In other news, since I just moved home and everything is still in boxes until I move on Monday, I can’t find my camera cable to upload pictures to the computer. Therefore, it will take me longer than I’d thought to post about the green dress I made. Sorry guys! It’s gorgeous, and worth the wait to check out, but I was hoping to get it up by now.
I also have some really cool vintage patterns at my disposal. My mom cleaned out my grandma’s garage, and she had a ton of patterns in there. The really cool ones are a couple of apron patterns from the forties. I want to make one, but mom’s going to keep the patterns here, and I won’t be here for too long.
Just as well. I have knitting projects to finish, and a friend commissioned me to make a dress for her that I need to get started on. She’s going to live in Japan next school year, so I need to finish it by … August, I think. It shouldn’t be too hard – just a typical shirt dress. But she did pick out really cool fabric.
There will be picture updates of that, as well.
And now … I should really attempt to work on my summer research stuff. That’s hard, because this is my only week off. We’ll see how it goes.
Love and peace,
