details on my Ravelry project page). This one is made with MadTosh Chunky in the fathom colorway--a colorway that is sooo much more awesome than this photo makes out. Imagine a gorgeous navy blue with depth--highlights of brighter, Tardis-like blue, and lowlights of black. It glows. Now I have a hat that will coordinate with my neon fine tune cowl when I wear it with my kelly green pea coat, woot!
Don't fret, that bray cap I was working on got finished too! I'll post about it on Friday!
How'd you do with this month's organization challenge? If you remember, I started the month with 4,121 total patterns logged into my electronic Ravelry library. After taking stock, I realized I was about 1.5 years behind in logging my magazine subscriptions in my Rav library. Ooops! Add nine books, a handful of paper patterns I acquired pre-Ravelry, and several more freebie pdf's I accumulated throughout the month, and I've topped the 5,000 mark in terms of patterns. Yikes. Sounds scary seeing it in print! My addiction to magazine subscriptions is the main driver of that pattern, and I know it. Several of you have suggested looking into accessing my favorite magazines for free via my library's electronic magazine service, but unfortunately my library doesn't include my favorite titles ... yet. I was pretty bummed to discover that! Eventually I may consider cancelling a subscription or two ... but I really like reading the articles and checking out the advertisements even if I don't always love every pattern (Vogue Knitting, I'm talking about you!) so I'm keeping my subscriptions for now. Vogue Knitting, Interweave Knits, KnitSimple, and Knitscene are the ones I subscribe to. I love the patterns in Knitscene the best, but love the colors/fashion/industry updates in Vogue the best. Funnily enough, the patterns in Vogue seem the ugliest to me! What magazines are your favorite to subscribe to?
