Heeding The Siren Song.

I first started hearing whispers about it at the beginning of the summer. I believe it was The Yarn Harlot's excellent blog where I first read of it. Then I started hearing of it on other random knitting blogs, and then the podcasts. This went on and on until as late as last week, when I decided that if I heard one more person mention it, I would have a breakdown.

And then, yesterday, it came for me. And in my weakened state, I heeded the siren song that is...

ravelry

I don't even know how to begin to describe this incredible site. You can catalog all of your knit/crochet projects down to the smallest detail. You can catalog the yarn in your stash. And every knitting/crochet book you've ever read. And every idea for a project you've ever had. And every set of needles/hooks you own. Meet other members, and add them to your list of "Friends". Join a group or two... or ten. And that's just the beginning...

Since ravelry is still in beta, you'll need to get on the waiting list before creating your account, but trust me, it's worth the wait. When you get your invitation to join, come find me. Screen name "Marni".

I've gotten my Ravelry invite within the last couple days too. Haven't had time yet for much digging, but there's so much good information -- truly an inspired service by the authors, much applause to them.

In other news, I'm still up for a spinning road trip when you are ;)

Yes yes yes, I'll call the woman from KDO tomorrow to see what we can schedule. Do you want to try to get a lesson in on a weekend?
