After waiting a couple of months or so, I finally got my invitation to sign up for Ravelry yesterday. I’m still exploring, but so far I’m enjoying it immensely. As someone who came very late to the online knit community party, I find it valuable and more importantly, inspiring, to read about and look at so many people’s projects.
Since I learned about Ravelry on someone else’s blog (unfortunately, I can’t remember which), I thought I’d post about it here and maybe someone who is interested would learn about it from me.
Ravelry is an online knit/crochet community that has all sorts of features, from forums to a yarn index to a pattern index, etc. One feature I like so far is that you can search for projects by yarn-type. I’m hoping this feature will help me get through my stash!
Right now Ravelry is in beta, but you can sign up for an invite and wait for an invitation, and like it said, it took a couple of months for me to get my invitation. But it was worth the wait!
