Bagged today…

flowerprintpantfab3.jpgAwesome cute print on a thrifted pair of pants. I want to make a felted clutch in a matching dark/medium pink and use this fabric for the liner. I love the colors. I think they look modern, but the pants are pegged and appear very 80’s in style.

I bought a few skeins of Patons classic merino (petal pink, old rose, burgundy, rich red, that’s pink, and paprika) that would be perfect for this. I intended use them for a ripple to match an Ikea rug that my sister-in-law owns. I’m inspired by the fabric, so that’s a start. I have been reading too many patterns and new books and not crocheting enough lately. Oooh, I just figured out that if I can get a jump in on this, I may be able to have it ready in time for the 2007 Color-A-Long on Craftster! And my neice’s birthday is in July, so I could give it to her as a gift…

The image is from a scan, I need to get my camera fixed so I can post my progress on a few more things. The nikon had an unfortunate accident last weekend involving gatorade and first-grade soccer practice – a nice excuse for a new digital SLR though, no?

No Sibling Ravelry here…

Ravelry's organizer featureRavelry – a “knit and crochet community”, looks like a LOT of fun. The way I see it, it’s going to be a mashup of Myspace, Flickr, and a personal online organizer. Wowza! I am such a sucker for things like this; thank god it’s not a paid site. It’s in beta testing right now, so all you can see are screenshots, but the interface looks fantastic. I signed up to join when it’s released – I just hope it’s soon.
