Ravelry came calling . . . and I can't say no!
I first heard about Ravelry on the Stash and Burn podcast. It sounded like the perfect place for me. According to their creators,
Ravelry is a "place for knitters, crocheters, designers, spinners, and dyers to keep track of their yarn, tools and pattern information, and look to others for ideas and inspiration."
In other words, it's a giant form of spreadsheet - but with photos and links to others. It's kind of like when you are searching for a yarn over the Internet and you find out how others are using it. Plus, you can find out what ELSE is on their needles. Knowledge and nosyness go hand in hand, you know!
So, when I got the email that I was invited to join the site, I dived right in. Watch the Daisy do her happy dance! It is taking quite a lot of time to load things onto the site but it is oh, so fun!
