I just logged in to Ravelry, and found some improvements they have made on friends' projects. It made me realize how terrible I am about updating my own project pages. I update things here from time to time, but hardly ever update Ravelry. I should, as it would be a help to others. I use it regularly for new projects, or for looking up projects that I'm curious about. I should update my own project pages to be the help to others that I so frequently look for myself. I guess I'm just lazy, and rarely take the time to do it. I am also horribly embarrassed by my pictures. I can see the shot; I just can't always take it. I also don't take pictures often enough. For example, I was working on Common Bean, and finished it - bound off and everything. Then when I started to stretch it out, I realized it was too small. So I frogged the whole thing. I looked and saw I had used the wrong size needle - I used a 6mm, when it called for an 8mm. My solution, as I couldn't find my 8mm, was to use a 9mm. I jumped from a size US 10 to a 13. I probably should have used an 11, but I couldn't find it, I didn't want to go buy one, and I knew I had extra yarn.
It's now almost done, but I am behind. I had tried to finish it by the 15th, so I would have one Christmas project done and ready, but I still have a few rows left and need to get finished with it. There are a ton of other things that I need to do as well. I have some items that I think I'm going to put up on Etsy, so look for that coming soon. A friend has a light box, and he agreed to let me use his to photograph my stuff. I just have to get a bunch of things done so I can take pictures. That will be next week, and hopefully I can open my Etsy shop just in time for the holidays!
What are your plans for the holidays? Anything exciting going on?
