Head Gardener's Log, February 11th, 2023
Get Organized with Ravelry!
Do you have a pile of WIPs with no idea where you are in the pattern? Or maybe you forgot what needle size or hook you were using when you started a project. Maybe you like the idea of a record of the projects you've made? Do you love scrolling through Ravelry, enjoying all the amazing projects? Or maybe you read and use the notes from other knitters and crocheters that have made a project you're thinking about making? Have you ever stopped and considered how that content gets there? It's from makers like you!
This free class will be held via Zoom on Thursday, February 16th at 7:00pm. Karen Collins will show us the benefits to tracking and organizing your projects on Ravelry and will walk us through the process to create that content ourselves. Even though this will be a free demonstration, we do need your email address to send you meeting information. Click on the image above or here to sign up!
I finished my Myssoni Bandana this morning... and I checked off two BINGO squares for Finished Object February BINGO! If you're not familiar with the shenanigans of FOFebruary BINGO, check out more details here! Want to make one of your own? The Myssoni Bandana takes 2 skeins of Noro Silk Garden and of course, I had to choose two different colors for mine! I put together some color ideas and showed them during today's Feature Friday live video on Facebook. If you missed the video, you can always watch the replay here or check out the color combos on the image above. Or choose your own combo! Shop the options available here.
Join our FB group, "Friends of The Yarn Garden"!
For the past couple weeks, I've asked questions about WIPs in our group over on Facebook. This week's question in the group was about WIPs and where you store them. Many of you shared some funny stories about where you found some WIPs in the comments! If you'd like to be a part of the next topic, make sure to join the group here.
What I'm knitting
My KAL sweater, the Oban Cardi is coming along nicely! I finished the shawl collar/button band this week and cast on the second sleeve. I prefer to do the finishing work in bite-size bits, so I plan to work on seaming the pocket linings this coming week, in between sleeve knitting and other projects!
Your Head Gardener,
I cast on for mitten number 2 of the Salna mittens last night while cozied up to the fire, listening to the rain and wind outside. There's nothing quite like being safe and snug inside, cuddled up with a dog and a project, while the weather rages outside. I hope you can experience the same peace!
