Working on Ravelry

I´ve been spending all evening on Ravelry adding yarns and projects, including the rest of the stash enhancement and all of my 2006 projects, respectively.

August has been a great S.E.X. (Stash Enhancement eXperience) month and I finally have a real stash! Including some sock yarns and my first grown-up non-Lopi sweater yarn. This one is for my husband. Why do one for him and not for me? I was gifted some vintage patterns and one man´s sweater was just too awesome not to make. When had it´s sale on Elsebeth Lavold yarn (and others) I used the opportunity and bought a whole sweater´s worth (25 skeins) of Silky wool (35% silk) for 50% off.

I finished the blanket I was working on almost exclusively and now I´m working on Cassie´s Loksins socks. I started them with 2.5 mm on 4 dpns. I actually liked the 4 dpns better than 5 dpns, but my girls pulled them out and I started them again with 2 mm circulars (from knitpicks,com) since they seemed a little big on 2.5. Now I´m worried they are too small.

Today me and my mom went to the knitting club at the library. It was a lot of fun as always. I brought some of my FOs to brag, he he.

Do you like the 2 circular needles better than sock needles? I'll have to try and learn that technique properly one of these days. Can't wait to see more of the sock.

I had to move my blog because my hosting is messed up, it's at And I nominated you for Rockin Girl Blogger. :)
