So, I’m a day late. Such is life. Thanks so much to everyone who weighed in on the subject of putting the group on Ravelry. I appreciate all your thoughts on the subject! I was just thinking it might bring us a little more activity or a few new members if we had a group there. But I will definitely let you know before I do anything major and keeping the blog but also making a group on Ravelry is definitely an option too.
I mailed off my second box for the year to Warm Woolies on Monday. Nestled inside was the cardigan coat I made recently as well as 17 pairs of socks, bringing my mailed off total to 34. Warm Woolies is still holding their contest until November 30 and in reading the fine print the other day it says you can be eligible for $50-$75 worth of prizes if you knit 25 items for them by that date. What a nice little bonus, though I am certainly not doing it for the prizes :)
The hats above bring my total of finished items up to 42 for the year and I am currently working on item #43 (another hat). After that I think I may try to make a couple vests and see how long they take me. Then, maybe back to socks. I’ll keep you posted. Keep up the good work everyone!
