Ravelry is awesome. Ravelry is a community for knitters, crocheters, weavers,  there are even a few loom knitters ( like me) and people who just love yarn. The ravellympics is where we all join a team( I joined teamloominescent2012), choose events and knit/crochet/weave/loom our hearts out. Like the real Olympics we will start on July 27 and stop on August 12.

Events I am taking part in:

Charity is kicking my butt

In a good way! :) I love helping out. I am on the shy side so face to face interaction ( if i don't know the person well) make me uneasy. So making items and sending them to a worthy cause is perfect for me.
Since I didn't receive many hats ( none actually ) for the University of Vermont School of Medicine and  Norris Cotton Cancer Center I have to make more than I have to send out . Was hoping 10 from each team member . I am waiting for a box of hats from one member....  Praying it comes in this week.

And I signed up to make socks for a local RI homeless shelter called House of Hope. They run the state’s largest men’s night to night shelter. they need hats, scarfs, mitten/gloves and socks. 
Here is the Ravelry thread if you interested in helping out.


If you would like to help out with shipping, click the button below. I put in a set amount of $0.50. 
( just so it doesn't take forever to ship out boxes- if you'd like to donate more, there is a contact button on the right under the twitter button).
Thank You!

Its an addiction

I LOVE making these loopy scarfs. with this one I decided to made a pair of matching finger-less mitts. I am not a fan of pink but I love pink and black together. This set is definitely on my favorites list. How about you ? :)

( I accidently brightened up the scarf pics too much. the color of the mitts is the the actual color)
