Ravelry

I've been cheating on this site with a new site called Ravelry (www.ravelry.com). It's in beta testing right now. I had to sign up and wait for a month or two before I was let in.

It's an amazing site for knitters and crocheters. You can catalog your projects, yarn stash, needles, and books. There are forums to talk about just knitting and there is a search engine that lets you see pictures of other people's projects. Amazing!

So, that's where I've been lately. If any of you are on there, my screen name is the same as on here.

It won't be too long. It is worth the wait. Look me up when you get there - we can start a pg.org fan club group.

I'm In!!! Woohoo!

I'm KimPossible..but haven't gotten a lot of time to spend looking around yet. I'm house sitting for my brother, a package deal that comes along wiht two teenagers and a couple of house pets.

I saw they are having a get together for the sheep and wool festival in Rhinebeck! How awesome! I go to it every year, however this might be the first year I don't *sigh*

Sure. Just click on the tabs. "Notebook" is where you keep all your projects, your yarn stash pictures, your needles, your friends, your books. "Patterns" is where you can go to find patterns. You can do a keyword search for say "baby" and you'll get tons of pattern names that tell you where to find the pattern, what yarn is recommended, and you can look at pictures of that pattern made by other ravelers. You have the option to add a pattern to your "queue" which you keep in your notebook. "Yarn" is where you go search for yarn, of course. You can put in a name of a yarn you have and see suggestions for patterns based on other people's experiences. "People" is where you can find new people. I think this is also where you can see other people's latest FO's (finished objects). "Forums" is where you can read up on the basic forums and the forums associated with any of the groups you're in. "Groups" is where you can find new groups to join. There's a keyword search for these too. There's thousands of groups to choose from. hth!

added myself in, but looks like it will ages before I get in there, since I'm just on the list now.

I'll have to make notes of this all so I remember who everyone is once I get in.

I know, I'm soooooooo excited! *starts singing*We're gonna be next! We're gonna be next! We're gonna be next!*stops singing* But I will say this, I can't knit for crap, my grandma tried and sadly, I just lacked the skill to truly knit well. But I can crochet, bead, embroider, sew(darn), cook, I have an eye for color, so I can't be all that bad right? Lol

It's done. I sent an invite to Avasmum (jendodd), KimPossible, comasgirl, gorlitsa, and CrescentMoonMama (camelnoodle). If I forgot anybody else, please let me know.

Also all new ravelers can join the group, by going to the groups tab on Ravelry and doing a search for "pregnant", "ttc", or "pg.org". Biggrin
