I'm on Ravelry! Squee!

Yes, I'm excited about that. I've spent the last few days drooling over all the FOs there. It is AMAZING! I'm so inspired. I've posted a few of my 'in progress' things. So, maybe I will be nudged into actually finishing them.

It so neat to look at things that other people have finished and you are still working on. Its nice to get to see other colours and yarns. Oh yes, Ravelry how I love thee.

These two tops are both for me. This is what I worked on mostly all summer. They are both done in a KnitPicks cotton. The crochet top is from BHG crochet and the yarn I picked is really too heavey. But I do love it. I love the lace pattern. I need to find some suitable buttons for the back. And maybe I will wear it - next summer.

The green thing is knitted, and I still have to finish a sleeve. It will be so pretty when its finished. But I need motivation to finish. And now that its colder, I don't feel the need to finish it. This pattern is from Vogueknitting Spring/Summer '07. On Ravelry several people have finished this, and oh...they are so lovely! I will finish this....I must finish this. Even though both tops are done in the same yarn, this is an excellent example of how much denser crocheted fabric is compared to a knit fabric.

Here is a close up of the crocheted top lace pattern just cuz I love it so.
