Jumping On The Bandwagon

I am jumping on the bandwagon! I got my Ravelry invite this morning and I've been checking it out somewhat. I've only got a little bit added (keep in mind that my stash, books, etc. are back home in Canada) since I'm limited on what I have with me for yarn and knitterly things here in Korea. Anyway, I go by Tabby2004 over there, so please feel free to add me as a friend!

On the knitting front, not much to report. I've started into the second Yukon Leaves sock as I may have mentioned before. I just need to sit down and work on it because it won't take long to knit up (it's a fairly easy pattern). I've not started the Dancing Tulips pattern yet because I had to contact Monica about the needle size. It calls for size 0 DPNs, but I don't have those (the smallest I have here is 2.75) and was wondering if the pattern can be adjusted for that. Unfortunately it doesn't look like that is possible, so that pattern will have to go on the back burner for awhile. However, The Victorian Swag socks should be able to be done on the 2.75 needles, so I can start in on those instead. I'll let you know how that goes when I start them.

I just found out on Friday that one of the teachers at school is pregnant and is due next April (or there abouts). I am thinking that I might try to make something for her - a baby sweater perhaps. I've got a bit of time to figure this out though, so I'm not going to rush into it right away.

I actually haven't done too much knitting lately. I'm going through a bit of a rough patch here this past week and haven't been in the mood for much of anything. I'm frustrated and annoyed with a couple of things that are going on, I'm trying to figure out what I'll do when I get back home next September (if it involves going for my B.A. or my M. Div., it will require more schooling and I will have to start applying soon, so I need to start thinking about this), and on top of that I feel like a little depression might be setting in. Doesn't make for a very good combination.

Anyway, just wanted to post a little update (sorry there are no pictures this time) to let you know how things are going, and that I'm not on Ravelry. I have a lot to do today, including coming up with 2 lesson plans for this week so I'd better head off and get things done before I end up wasting my day away and regretting it later tonight. And, I am going to do some knitting today just to relax because I need some relaxation to get my mind off things. Yukon Leaves (or casting on for the Victorian Swags), here I come!

Welcome to Ravelry! Just added you to my friends! Praying for you during this 'rough patch'. I'm sure it's hard being far from home! Hopefully knitting will help!

Welcome! (I'll be adding you to my friends as soon as Maxime is down for his nap). Sorry to hear you're feeling blue. I guess that's to be expected when you're away from home for a prolonged period of time. Hang in there!

Hi Shelley! I haven't commented in so long! I came to catch up on all your knitting endeavors... you're great!!! I'm still a beginner but hope to learn more this winter on those cold nights indoors!!

I hope you're doing well; God bless!

Nice to see you on Ravelry. It's a massive time waster but lots of fun.
