Then, with his gift of the book Favorite Socks, my little brother requested that I make him Eastern European Footlets for his birthday. The pattern is a toe-up design which was a little confusing for me (understandable considering it's only my second pair of socks) but I believe I figured it out. They should be done in plenty of time for his birthday in March.
What I really love about Ravelry, besides a huge database of patterns is that I can catalogue all of my knitting supplies (yarn, books, magazines, needles) and my knitting projects. I can easily find what I have without searching all over the house. The website is easy to use and attractively designed. I just wish I had the same thing for sewing!
I also started a scarf using some yarn from my stash, Patons Grace. The pattern is another Ravelry one available here. Knitting lace will be a nice break from the simple rounds of stockinette required for the XL footlets I'm making. I do have some sewing projects I'd like to start/complete and some I need to share, that is if I can pull myself away from my knitting!
