Block par-tay

My completed knit pieces finally started calling out, "Block me. Block me." So I had to oblige. Above you see the aborted Mystery Stole 3 (which I'm going to give to the kiddo to include in her dress-up bin), the Branching Out scarf, and the Bobble Blue scarf. I knit Branching Out with 2 balls of Knitpicks Elegance in Grass. The yarn was lovely to knit with and turned out soooooo soft. I knit Bobble Blue with 2 balls of Knitpicks Wool of the Andes in Blueberry. This yarn is not so soft initially, but blocking seems to have softened it up quite a bit. Hopefully it will stay this soft when it's completely dry.

When these are dry, I just have to block the Clapotis and Clementine Shawlette and I'll be up to date.

I'm in!!!!!

Finally, after months of waiting, I got my invite for Ravelry this morning! The story is actually kinda funny - I got an e-mail from Knit Mongrel on Saturday saying that she looked me up on the wait list, and it said that 0 people were ahead of me. I did a double take and checked myself and discovered that she was right! But I hadn't gotten my invite. We figured that I would be the 1st person on the invite list when they started sending out invites again. But I also realized that, being a holiday weekend, I would have to wait until Tuesday to get the invite. ARGHHH! But I was patient (what choice did I have?), checked my e-mail as soon as I could this morning, and soon after got my invite! I've already been spending way too much time on it, considering that I should be working today. But I can't help it! I've uploaded pictures of my stash and will hopefully, later this week, have a chance to put in some projects and such. And, of course, look at what other people are doing!

If you're in Ravelry, I'm knitmasala, and I want to be your friend! Let me know your name, or just add me to your friends list. Woohoo!
