Share your Favorites on Fridays!

If you're anything like me, then I bet you spend a lot of time oohing and ahhing over all of the gorgeous projects on the interwebs. It used to be that when I saw I project I liked, I'd immediately purchase the yarn for it and started knitting.... and I'm sure you can imagine how the projects and yarn added up. Also notice that I didn't say "and then FINISHED knitting" said projects.

Nowadays, I've taken more of a realistic approach to how many projects I can handle at a time, especially now that I'm also designing. I've come to accept the fact that I can't knit everything I want to, and that this doesn't have to be a bad thing. I can still enjoy the beauty of other people's work, and well, if there is a project or pattern out there that I keep thinking about over and over again, then I'll put it in the queue!

So that is the inspiration for Favorites Friday, which will start tomorrow! On Fridays, I'll post some of the projects/patterns/yarns I've favorited on ravelry throughout the week, basically things I would knit if only there were more hours in the day, let's make that  -- days in the week.

And since I know I'm not the only one in this predicament, I'd love to open this up for anyone to contribute! Send me an email with (1) a blurb about yourself and your knitting "style" (e.g. what you are currently knitting, your favorite thing to knit is, your favorite yarn, etc., and (2) links to three things you favorited on ravelry and a short blurb why you favorited them. I'm looking forward to hearing from you all!
