unraveled

Much like Alison, I spent Friday afternoon taking pictures of my stash, uploading them to Flickr, and filling out my stash on Ravelry. The sun was out for the photo session, and the rain held off until I was done. Thank you, nature!

Now that I've got (almost) everything up in my stash, I've fallen for Ravelry. I started to identify pictures for finished projects, and filled up my Flickr allotment for the month. So no more pictures for August, and I couldn't even get all 2007 pictures uploaded! I'll be adding the projects over the next couple of weeks. Happily we've got a big screen on our desktop computer, so I can keep both Ravelry and blog up on the screen to record the project details in Ravelry.

It was very, very gray this morning, so no pictures of the Chamomile progress today. One sleeve is done, and the other should be finished by tonight. It's going well, but I have one gripe. The pattern calls for seven skeins of Summer Tweed, and I'm going to be lucky if I can finish the project with eight. What gives? I'd be further along in the knitting, but I had to spend some time looking in Ravelry to see if anyone had my color that they wanted to unload, in case I ran out. I think it will turn out OK, but it's creating more tension than I'd like!

I haven't done the stash thing yet on Ravelry. I do like that I can look up a yarn and see what other people have knit with it. I've gotten some great ideas for yarn in my stash. Now I just have to decide...

Ravelry is extremely addictive, isn't it? Like Brenda, I haven't done the stash thing yet either - the reason for that must be that I'm just too overwhelmed of the mere thought of organizing it ;)
