To all Reluctant Ravelers: Hi’ya! :waving:
I have been a Raveler since August 28th 2007. After entering my profile, some “buddies” and the KH “Group”…I just [I][B]stalled and stalled[/B][/I] entering [U]anything[/U] into MY NOTEBOOK!
I am the consummate [B]Reluctant Raveler. [/B]Join my Club! Let’s inspire one another!
So, yesterday, I took the bull by the horns…and entered my Yarn Stash:
160 entries worth. (Yeah…you read right.) So, I finished up tonight.
It is waaay cool to click one of my yarn STASH entries…and see who else is knitting something with my same yarn, but maybe in a different color. THAT is worth a million!
Also, here was a nice feature…I had lots of yarn that I had no clue how much yardage was in the skein. [B]Mystery[/B] [B]Yarn[/B]. Back in the ole days, skeins did not divulge yardage…just the ounces. (eek…does that age me?:shrug:)
Well, the Ravelry software provided me with yardage info…as long as I knew [U]something about the yarn[/U]. Sometimes I didn’t know both the name of the yarn and the “company name” of the yarn. So, I entered the name of the yarn in both boxes…and clicked…and the next page gave me the correct name [U]and the company name.
[/U]Anyhoo, if I don’t do a single additional thing with MY NOTEBOOK on Ravelry…the YARN STASH is going to be very useful, I think. I have lots of patterns planned for the big bunches of yarn…15-18 skeins will build any cardigan…but whaddya do with 2,3,4 skeins that are leftover from past projects??? I mean, come on…ya can only knit so many scarves, right?
Well, if you are a Reluctant Raveler [U]who has received your [/U][U]invitation[/U], but are reluctant to jump into the pool…just [U]wade in at the shallow end[/U] like I did. [COLOR=Blue]Enter your yarn data.[/COLOR]
If you [U]have not received your invitation[/U]…in the meantime…organize your yarn stash in a notebook…that will make your STASH entries in your Ravelry notebook go more quickly.
