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!

    I wouldn’t say it’s like Etsy, although there are some promotional/networking ops for designers on Ravelery. It’s more just an online community. I probably won’t blog there as this one is fairly well established, but I will be posting projects there.

    Interesting. It looks kindove like Etsy for knitters.
    I also got an invite a while back to join the new Sacramento Bee MomsClub site and blog. Turns out a month later and 2 weeks after the official launch I’m the #1 blogger hit and #4 on the whole site. Sweet!
    It’s good to have other side-projects rather than just jewelry. Are you still painting?
    Can you sell anything on Ravelry? Or is it just an on-line community? Will you have a blog there about stuff you make?
    It looks like a really cool site!
