Kniting like crazy

Some of the projects I have started to work on....in my head...is the Shawl, Meg made her daughter for her wedding, the Spanish Peacock in The Gathering of Lace in the Gallery...However, mine will be in a deep red...icelandic lace
I also ordered the yarn to do a swatch for the Knit-Purl sweater in the new Armenian Knitting book by Meg and Joyce.
Me in THE ARAN COAT I have watched the DVD at least 5 times and last week I ordered some of the sheepsdown to do my swatch...I will work on finishing touches to the design of my pattern this week.
Me in the sweater that EZ made and showcased in Meg's book The Gathering of Lace! Ok, so I look a bit weird...my sweater is all bunched up under the sweater



Well, as usual I have decided at the last min. I do want to knit for some of my friends for Christmas presents. So this weekend I KNIT and then I KNIT SOME MORE!
A few months back I purchased some cotton Peaches and Cream and made a dish cloth...well I love it but it seemed small so I made another one but bigger...NOT better...I threw out the big one and made my self some more small ones. These little things are mighty big on cleaning up...bigger just gets in the way.
So, now everyone I know is getting a set of dish cloths and a bottle of matching dish soap...the color matches the dishcloth...can you say Anal!! I like things that match...there are days my underwear matches my blouse/Sweater!!!...I am color coordiated!! Ok maybe not color
coordinated just anal.

RAVELRY
Ok, finally got my invite...didn't think I would be impressed or care but figured I better go see what all the chatter was about....OMG...each time I go in there I find more things to do and get excited about...it is like going to KNITTING CAMP! And the great part is all the campers are there already. I am still setting up my pages...was excited that some people picked my ASJ and Aspen sweater as their favorites... I love the book part...putting in all my books and seeing them so neat on the shelves and the fact that all I had to do was type in a title and click on a picture and all the information is then loaded onto my page and I can download into a database and now I have a great database of all my books, which I can put on my PDA and keep with me...so I don't buy anymore seconds!
Speaking of databases I will post the database I did with all of EZ's and Meg's books with pattern locations. I am waiting for Michelle to check it out and make sure I have it all right.

I love your Aran Coat! I haven't made that pattern yet, but it is one of my favorite EZ patterns.
