A Woman Ahead Of Her Time

It is not often that the phrase 'ahead of her time' is used to describe me. More likely, I think would be the expression 'slow to adapt to change'.

But when I clicked on Stash & Burn yesterday, there it was . Proof that at least in this instance, I was ahead of my time. A September idea for something I did all summer.

September apparently, is 'Single Skein September' - at least according to Stash & Burn. I spent my summer doing single skein stuff. Remember my One Skein Wonders? My 6 hats? My mittens? My tea Cozy?

The euphoria lasted only a couple of seconds though. Stash & Burn mentions several projects. Not one of them was available to an ordinary 'net' user like me. They all were 'ravelry' items. So - at last - - as I said -- 'slow to adapt to change ' -- I signed up for ravelry. Only a four day wait, apparently and I will be on ravelry. A woman almost up with the times.

By the way. only three more big sleeps until the Kitchener Waterloo Knitters Fair. Yippee! If you see me there, please come up and say hello.

Hello! Thanks for the comment on my blog. I'm using a Colourmart yarn for the shawl -- it seems to be very fragile. I think I need to take a break from it for a while - or lose my sanity.

Enjoy Ravelry. It can be overwhelming at first - but the pattern search facility is great and for that alone it is worth being a member.

Hi Brenda I'm not going to the knitters fair this year so I will be waiting to read all about it on your blog. Have a good time.
