Trying to settle in at Raverly

Yesterday was spent on the computer. The day flew by as I attempted to get settled in at Raverly. There is so much that you can put on there, and I'm stuggeling to find pictures of my projects. Then when I find the pictures, I don't have the book of the pattern I used! I may just post my pics without that. On top of that, they have a place where you can put pictures of your stash! I've never even considered taking pictures of the yarn that I have waiting for me to use.

So instead of worrying about all of that, I explored the groups. I found some interesting ones that I think will be fun to be a part of there. Thank goodness not everyone there is a knitter! I don't have anything against knitting, but I sometimes feel that crochet is underrated and underused. There is a group there that believes the same thing, so I joined it. There is also a group that does Tapestry crochet. I've only made a couple of tapestry crochet double sided hot pads, but it is very nice and not for the beginner. I have to find the ones I made to take pics of them. I know I have them put away somewhere, because I selfishly didn't want to give them away. I also found a group of walkers attempting to get in 10,000 steps a day! I doubt that I will achieve that goal soon, but it will help get me motivated again to start walking. I've stopped since I hurt my knee in September, but I think it's healed enough that I can do some walking as long as I don't overdo it.

That was my day yesterday. Not really exciting to most people but I did feel that I got quite a bit done. I even remembered that I had some of my project pics on floppies, so I uploaded them to Flickr. Sometime today I need to post them at Raverly. I have a doily that is especially pretty that I want to get up there.

In the meantime, I need to clean my kitchen and bathroom. So now I'm off to do that. When I get that done, I may take a break and finish reading book 5 of the Stephine Plum series. I haven't touched it since before Thanksgiving I'm sorry to say.

Have a great day everyone!
