Ravelry

Although I've had access to Ravelry for a few months, I have just started doing some more things with it in the past month or so. Ravelry has so much on its site, it's rather overwhelming and I do have a tendency to "shut down." Reminds me of shopping for a white blouse at the Macy's in downtown San Francisco. When I was confronted with racks upon racks of white blouses, I just called it quits and walked out.

I've recently been visiting the Forum board. It's like watching a craps game in Las Vegas. The topics are constantly changing and updating it's hard to keep track of what's happening. I wish some of that action would come back to these boards, which have been very quiet lately. It's been quiet on other boards I check out and I've been told the Ravelry forums are "quiet" compared to usual activity. I can't imagine how much must typically go on.

I guess I'm much more of a smaller can be better person. This is still one of my favorite places to visit.

Thanks KT!
It is actually a mostly humanitarian site, although certainly the patterns and such there, are for family and home, for gifts, and to warm people's hearts everywhere.

I had 3 preemies (and 2 full term babies) and that was how it all started out, cos I wanted to give back. It's grown immensely in all the years it's been online. :)

There are SO many people who could use some love and something made with love and I want to make sure there are patterns there for every cause and every need!

Glad you like it!
Have a lovely day :)

Have a wonderful day everyone!

I love the amount of space you offer on your website to charity projects and outreach.

I really enjoy ravelry, but have to say, that some of these smaller forums are just cozier I guess. I am starting to make a come-back on them!

I cant' stop knitting because I definitely have too much yarn. I couldn't pass up a deal on Paton's Decor variegated yarn a couple of months ago that Elann was selling for like $10 for a bag of six. I'm using the yarn to make charity lap robes and shawls.

I also finished up a couple of projects to enter in the LA County Fair and am contemplating another pair of socks to add to these two. Fortunately, it's been unusually cool for this time of year in Los Angeles so I was able to finish my wool afghan.

I'm not familiar with the forum you've mentioned, KT, but I too have been wondering where all the knitters have gone. Know you've been busy and the chemo hats are flying from my needles, so at least two of us are still plying the craft. I enjoy your comments and information, and appreciate that you're not going to desert me yet. Happy Knitting!!! Marian
