Ramblings of an awestruck knitter

I love to knit, of course I do, and so do you I am sure, or why would you be reading a blog about knitting. But until Ravelry, I didn't realize how much.
If you aren't a part of Ravelry yet, you need to sign up.
I was flipping through my notebook and OMG, the projects I have finished this year.
I guess it's no more than any other year, but to have all your pictures and information in one place, it really shows.
I know my Ravelry Page is nothing compared to some peoples. But I am impressed, if I do say so myself.
And there are even somethings I haven't posted yet, like the scarf I finished for the Ole Man for Christmas, about a dozen KAL dishcloths and one towel, and another, (yes Liza, another one) Everlasting Bagstopper from Knitty.
I am amazed how organized I am over at Ravelry, it has done allot to help my knitting that's for sure.
I now wish there was a Ravelry Kitchen, or laundry, or babysitter, imagine how organized my life would become.
The little project tags for one thing, you can get the code and post it to your blog, website or whatever, and everyone can find out that no one likes your patterns, all at a single glance. It's great for the ego. ;0)
Honestly though, Ravelry has been a wonderful addition to my knitting and I am forever greatful that it was created.
Don't you know those poor girls over there didn't realize what a community they were starting when this idea just popped into thier heads one day? I can imagine, in the beginning it had to be a tad overwhelming. But they have handled it like champs and created a website that will help revolutionize the knitting community.
Like I said, if you haven't signed up yet, you really should, then you will know exactly what I mean.
When you do..... start slow, it can be a little scary at first, but once you get the hang of it, you will be Raveling with the best of them.

Coincidentally, I have been thinking about joining Ravelry and wasn't sure I wanted to, so thanks for your post!

Getting back in the groove

It's been so long since I have wanted to knit anything.  I knit so many socks when I started knitting back in '99 that I was comp...
