Speaking of Ravelry...


It makes me feel not quite so insane.

I photographed and catologued my hand painted/hand dyed yarns (mostly sock) last week and built them into the stash feature. I've been putting off doing the rest of the stash because it takes so long to upload all the photos to flickr, but when I look through other people's stashes over there, mine seems puny by comparison. Then I tell myself that everyone else probably has loads more yarn they haven't added as well. Then I pat myself on the back for my frugality and self restraint. It works for me.

I'm finally posting a picture of B's Monica Tank. I worked it in the round, changed all the garter to seed stitch, and shortened the ruffle by about half for a lighter look. Unfortunately, she doesn't really care for it. She prefers (and has requested another of) the Kidlet Tank which I just cast on for in Needful's Ceramic yarn. This yarn is shiny. Shiny like lame looking. I don't really care for it, my kid, on the other hand, thinks it's fabulously glamouriffic. Heh.

It looks adorable on her. Don't feel bad about your stash. I'm sure yours is modest compared to some. ;)

I think it looks great on her (she's so big!!) I'm jealous you've already gotten a peek at Ravelry.

I love your modifications! Seed stitch was a great idea! I've found the garter straps to stretch too much.

Yeah, get that Ravelry invite and never feel bad again!

Love the tank, B is such a sweetie.
