One step forward and two steps back?? LOL I started a felted purse that will use up three skiens of some Chunky Mauch yarn. Then I went and bought some Noro Kureyon to make my mom a purse just like it and the FT felted clogs pattern for both adults and kids But hey the felted clogs pattern will use up some of my stash too right

READY!

Hi mama! What is your Ravelry name? I clicked your Ravelry icon, but it wasn't linked to your profile page. I couldn't find you over there. I want to add you to my friends if I haven't already done so!

Hi Robynbird! I made a cardigan this past winter using Cascade Cloud 9! Oh how I love the feel of it. However, my Cloud 9 (red) turns the arm of my husband's suit RED with fur...and my white blouse RED with fur. In other words, it sheds like the dickens! I don't know what to do about it. Everything I touch, or that it touches, is instantly a red furry mess!

Do you have any ideas what I can do?

It is the "Branching Out" scarf pattern. It is a free pattern on Knitty.com and you can CLICK HERE for quick reference! The "Branching Out" shown on the website is much lacier and prettier than mine because the model scarf used a finer weight yarn than I did. But, that is the beauty of this pattern! It will accommodate slightly different types of yarn and still turn out nice!

I am glad you like mine! And, BTW, is was an easy pattern because only the right sides have the lacework; the wrong sides are "resting rows"...you just purl the purls and knit the knits!

FYI: if you don't already do so, learn to install "lifelines" at the end of each pattern repeat. Ack. I learned that the hard way.
My most common mistakes are forgetting a yarnover; or, putting in an extra yarnover! So, at the end of each row, I always do a head count before knitting my wrong side.

That's beautiful Artlady! I love the yarn but yes...it got all over everything. Kind of a bummer...not sure what to do about it...carry a lint brush with us? LOL

I finally got my Ravelry invite and have started my Stash recording. This is the most practical step, I think, in organizing my stash :-)

Happy new year!

Stash Buster!
Yeah!! Used up six skeins (out of 30 ) of that All Seasons Cotton I went overboard on!

It is a little cardigan for my granddaughter. I posted more information about it in Whatcha Knitting. Click HERE

Love the Sweaters ArtLady! They are beautiful and so inspiring. I am hoping this year with all my stash yarn and knit-alongs that I will get to knit some really fun things like your sweater for my little girl. It is the reason I am learning to knit

As for my 2008 Goals, the first one was to join my 1st knit-along, so far, so good on that one. 2nd goal was to discover my stash. This is going to be a slow but steady project. I am going through bag by bag and then listing it on Ravelry (Thanks to your great "New to Ravelry" posts!) I am trying to get one bag done a week. Once done then I can decide on what patterns to go with the stash yarns. Yikes! Well, I am excited to have started this journey and am hoping with everyone's help that I can de-stash, knit cool projects and learn Ravelry during 2008!

Happy New Years!

Thanks ArtLady!

What do you mean by "lifelines"? Do you mean stitchmarkers, or something else? I am constantly having to recount if there isn't a clear pattern repeat, so any tips to alleviate THAT are appreciated!
