Wow, I've been busy!

It's been so long since I last posted, that I can't even begin to catch up. Suffice it to say, I've knit several pairs of socks and other various garments since I last updated. If you really want to see all I've done, check out my projects page on Ravelry. My username there is beppermee. If you have not signed up for Ravelry yet, go do it now! Do not do anything else until you have put your name on that waiting list. It is the absolute best knitting resource ever!!! Not only can you look up patterns and yarn, you can see what other people have made with specific yarns or you can see what people have used to knit certain patterns. On top of that, you can manage your stash, library and needles all in your virtual notebook. And if that weren't enough, the knitting community is awesome! There are literally thousands of forums for every possible interest you could have, even outside of knitting. I could write all day about it, but your best bet is to sign up and start exploring yourself. Go, go!

Now, onto something more project related - my most recent endeavor that I'm involved in is the creation of my very first pattern. It will be a sock pattern, for a sock club that is being started by a fellow knitter that is also a fantastic dyer. I'm really excited to be writing my very first pattern. Now I see why some people have written so many. It can be quite exhilarating. I just have to finish test knitting that pattern, and find a few other people that would be willing to give the pattern a try, and then it should be good to do. Angela (the dyer) has even said she will sell the pattern for me in her shop! I'll post photos of the WIP later today, as well as some of the other things I'm currently working on. I really have to finish up some of my UFOs.

But what I really want to do is write another pattern...I feel a new obsession coming on...

Be careful! You will LOVE designing and then you'll never have time to knit anything for yourself. LOL. I can't wait to see your pattern. I'm so excited!
