So, to do this thing right, I am doing a gauge swatch. Actually, I do one for each project I work on... well, almost always. It sure does save a lot of time.

This last week I actually managed to complete to more project for the Christmas stash. I think that puts me roughly a quarter of the way through this thing.
I suspect that everyone has their pattern and proverbial doo doo together by now. So start date on the KAL.... This coming Saturday!
This weekend, I was just sitting at my desk, bored and had nothing to do. Then out of the corner of my eye, I say this ball of yarn staring at me intently.
Because I have done it!
I have finally gotten into Ravelry! I have ravelried myself!
We had our 3rd Knit and Crochet group meeting Thursday evening here in Murfreesboro. I think things went well. Several people left early, Most stayed until the library closed.
I have started a sweater in fingering weight yarn, a cotton/wool blend. The pattern is K5, P3 all the way up the body.
