Throw-back Thursday projects

Yesterday I was asked about a pattern for a project I had done a few years ago.  Usually I can remember exactly what pattern and yarn I had used for most of my projects but I was a little off on my game so I went to trusty old Ravelry and looked it up in my notebook there.

Ravelry continues to save my behind.

Well, that and I had actually listed the project in my notebook which is pretty huge.  Sometimes I get so excited to work on a new project I totally blow off taking a picture and loading details into my notebook.  WHAT?  Okay, I am guilty of doing that quite a bit.  But hey, you are my witness…I’m going to work on that from now on.  Starting….NOW….really.

Anyway, the project was a cute little elephant that I made for my sister.

This was from Susan B. Anderson’s blog and is called Elefante (and it happens to be FREE).

Susan is just so amazing!  (She will be teaching classes near me in just a couple of months and I am giddy with excitement to be going!  She is teaching her new Sheep! project and covering pattern design as well.  I may have just squealed.  Ahem.)

Here’s a look at Susan’s projects:

As I was looking through my notebook I saw a couple of other favorites from the same time frame that I had knit:

rolypolycats

and

first sweater

which happens to be another Susan B. Anderson project…(yikes, I’m not a stalker or anything, really…she just is so good!)

An interesting side note of the baby sweater project…I took that picture in the car as I was traveling to deliver it as a gift,   It hadn’t quite dried from blocking so I was trying to hurry it along a little in the car with fans so I could tuck it into a gift bag.  A gal’s gotta do what a gal’s gotta do.  Don’t ask me if I had just finished knitting it the night before or anything.

Thursday’s are good for remembering those good times and they help me to focus on what I can do to keep improving.  How about you?  Are you good at keeping your notebook on Ravelry up to date?

Throwing it back to you,
