I just today got the invite for Ravelry!!!
:woohoo: :happydance: :cheering: :slight_smile: cloud9
I will update my siggy now with my name there


welcome to the never ending pattern libruary :yay: .

you can spend hours on there and still have hours left to look hehe

After I got Ravelry, I spend less and less time on KH, too. I still come here for How-To questions because the response is so fast, but Ravelry is the kind of online community that just sucks you in and won’t let go. My laptop at home has a permanent Ravelry tab open in Firefox. :mrgreen:

does a little happy dance with you

YAY!!! Party time! What is your name there?


Good Heavens, what is this?
Never heard of the site. Prizes for explaining why everyone wants to get on there. (But I mean in detail, not just that it’s wonderful).

its kinda like this site, but kinda not

in addition to being a community of yarn crafters, it is also a way to get free pattern, share patterns, keep track of your supplies and stash, aand, of course, meet people

"ravelry is a knit and crochet community"

  • It is an online community for all of us who do fiber crafts. :slight_smile:
  • It is in “beta test” mode right now, which means that they are still working out some of the kinks.
  • You have to sign up (it is [U]free[/U]!) with your email address and wait a few days until they add you as a member. You can check the status while you wait, but it isn’t long. (I waited about 4 days and that was recently.)
  • Once you join, it has everything: forums like we have here, groups to join based on all kind of interests (pets, tv shows, other hobbies you have, spinning, local SnB’s, etc. - tons of 'em), a place to keep track of your stashed yarns, an interactive card to keep an inventory of your needles, an [I][B]extensive[/B][/I] library of free and buyable patterns, and (best of all, I think) a whole area to keep track of your projects where you can connect to a photo host (like Flikr or Photobucket) and your knitting blog (if you have one).
  • Once you add a project (and they can be FOs or WIPs), you can then “share” it with other people–people you have “friended” or in groups you have joined. That way, others can see the progress you are making.

There’s a lot more, too… really too much to explain all of it, but the bottom line is that it is an all-inclusive community that is great if you do fiber crafts because you can kind of keep track of everything in one place.

I hope this helps! :slight_smile:
