I just want to bang on my drum all day

Bj and I have been humming that song lately, "I don’t want to work, I just want to bang on my drum all day." Only instead of "bang on my drum" I want to knit, scrapbook, and spin yarn. Shocking I know. 🙂 I love Ribbon Jar, but lately I have been wanted to craft, craft, craft. Remember how I said I bought some yarn up in Bellevue? Well some of it was the old Tahki Cotton Classic that Mason Dixon made famous.

I had some before when I had a bad case of

I need to get some other colors, and I have a credit at a yarn shop in Portland that sells it. I think I bought all that orangish color because I was going to do something for V, but I can’t remember now so I’ve put it in the blanket stash.  Hopefully I’ll feel the urge to do something else soon, but until then, happy knitting!

Oh and P.S. if you love knitting, stash collecting, and general yarn fun make sure you check out Ravelry. It isn’t fully ready yet, but I am on the waiting list. Still have over 10 thousand people ahead of me in line. But thought I’d clue you in so when I do get in maybe you won’t be far behind!

    thought I’d check my status just now – 18,738 people ahead of me!
    OMG! That’s insane! There’s 1,349 people behind me though so that makes me feel a little better. 🙂

  2. The colours on your miters are fab! My blanket seems to have fallen into hibernation due to my issues with deciding on colour schemes for the squares! Heads up for Ravelry I know that the invites are going out pretty quick so hopefully the wait won’t be too long, and it’s certainly worth it!
