Join Ravelry and Let’s Be Friends

So we’ve hooked you into fibre crafts, you’re knitting and crocheting up a storm. Hooray! That was the plan from the beginning, enabling everyone we know to buy more yarn.

Glad you are on board. Carry on good crafter.

Now that you are busy knitting or crocheting you need somewhere to keep track of all your projects. Well good news. There is such a place and it’s called Ravelry.

Ravelry is a digital scrapbook for all your yarn related projects with a social component. There’s friends to have and groups to join and oh, so many more patterns and yarns to inspire you.

Though sometimes it can be embarrassing when you excitedly log in to announce you’ve finished a pair of socks and you realize it’s taken you 4 years to knit them. You know, for example, say. I don’t know that from experience or anything.

Moving on.

Not only is Ravelry great for keeping track of projects you’ve finished (called FO’s for finished objects) it’s a great spot for yarn craft related research. If you find a great pattern and aren’t sure which yarn or colours to use search on Ravelry. Everyone who’s made or is making that same pattern will come up and you can check out changes they’ve made and learn from their mistakes.

It’s nearly the best website on the whole interweb.

Here’s what you need to do to get started

Once you’ve done all that, leave a link to your profile here in the comments so we can find each other and be friends. Cause that’s what makes knitting fun, friends. And the yarn.
