Mommy Time

This week I'm the driver. Each of my three kids is doing a different summer activity that of course, don't all begin and end at convenient times or aren't located at the same place. That means I have to call in the reinforcements (Nolamom/Gram) and I find myself in different parts of town with an hour and a half on my own. What to do? Yes, I have been knitting. I have three different projects in the car with me, to stave off boredom. I could stand to finish something because I get the feeling too many things are on the needles.

Today, I decided to go to the LYS Ancient Pathways, which is located in the part of town close to the high school where two of three of the kids are this week. I don't often get to this store, but they are a friendly bunch, and I wanted to look for something red or black to knit to ease my guilt over the lack of Project Spectrum knitting.

Didn't find any red/black. But I did find this--

I'm all about the Chevron Scarf these days, and the flickr group photos just make me want to do more and more. My Noro Chevron is interesting, but not pleasing to my tactile senses. (Scratchy). Anyway, I thought that these yarns looked interesting. Knit One Crochet Two's Ty-Dy, in two different colorways, greens and periwinkle/green/purple. It is all cotton. The other is True Love Fiber's "Maggie" named after Ancient Pathways Owner, which is superwash wool/Tencel sock yarn, and French 75 Panda - a merino, bamboo sock yarn. Wouldn't they look nice together?

In other news, I finally got my invite to Ravelry, the latest thing in the knitter online world. So cool! I'm very excited by the possibilities! I am working on getting it set up with all my projects and photos and the like, but I am having a blast playing around with it.

Love all the yarn. The Chevron is working its magic on me. I need to make one!!!

Looks like perfect combos for the Chevron.
Let me know if Ravelry is worth the time - I don't know if I can add it to my "to do" list without spontaneously combusting. I haven't even asked to be invited because I don't know if I want to do it.

Love Ravelry! Can't wait to see the Chevron progress - I like seeing everyone's different projects!
