Don't You Love....

Ravelry! If you haven't gotten on that thing, you must. Many people believe that blogging has fallen by the wayside since the advent of Ravelry. Plus there are so many other places to connect on the web nowadays (Twitter, Facebook, Flickr). I just keep my life simple and do the blogging and Ravelry.

And why do I like Ravelry so much? It's the perfect time waster. I could look at patterns for hours and hours, swoon over the yarn choices, laugh at the cooky avatars, and add a ton of new projects to my queue. It's not that I plan on doing these projects today, it's almost like you save it right away so that you can get back to it a few months later. It's a great way to organizes oneself (especially when you're not organized yourself).

Another reason why I like Ravelry is because it's a great way to get some knitting done. I'm sure your thinking "What on earth do you mean Kelly?" I'm what they would call a product knitter, so I could give two shits about HOW something is done, just as long as it is done. However, whenever I don't have the time to knit, I go to Ravelry to get that knitting itch scratched. I find great pleasure in looking at other people's FO's and dreaming up FO's of my own some day. Am I the only person that feels this way?

So why do YOU like Ravelry?

Ravelry me encanta por la cantidad de patrones y por que como dices, puedes organizarte mucho mejor.. y yo antes de ravelry no era muy ordenada que digamos :P ; y claro una queda contemplando por largo rato los trabajos realizados con unas lanas preciosas y te quedas pensado ahhhh como quisiera tejer algo asi... yo tengo un montón de patrones en mis favoritos así los encuentro despues con mayor facilidad...mmm.. realmente cada vez que entro a ravelry y algo me encanta lo dejo en favoritos jajajaja.. Para las amantes del tejido Ravelry es una verdadera adicción...

I love revelry mostly for the patterns. Though I've been able to connect with other knitters and get hints and tips for certain patterns that I'm having trouble with. It is a fantastic social networking idea!!

I love Ravelry because it helps me keep track of my projects and because I can look up and see whether other knitters had the same problem with a pattern that I'm having. VERY reassuring.
