Ravelry

I finally got my invite to join Ravelry and set up my account on Tuesday. Over the past few days I've been poking around, trying to make sense of everything and fleshing out my profile little by little. I've loaded all my finished hand-spun yarns so far. I can already tell I'm going to love exploring what the site has to offer. Although I hope becoming active in the community will help direct more people to my Etsy shop, I'm really excited just as a knitter to jump into Ravelry.

I can't wait to go through my stash and enter what I've got. I'm so looking forward to having such a fun and effective way to keep track of what I've got. Also, I figure if I get any inquiries about custom orders over on Etsy, I can refer people to check out my stash to see what kinds of yarns they could choose from. And the prospect of selling my hand-spun and seeing someone knit something with it and put it up as a project is exciting too! I'm also planning to input all my finished projects and WIP's, however I'm dreading that a little because I think my tendency to lack follow-through with my knitting endeavors will become very apparent. I wonder how many lonesome socks I will discover patiently waiting for their partners...

In other news, my computer has decided to stop recognizing the digital camera when I plug it in, so I'm not too sure how I'm going to photograph any of the new items I've got planned for my Etsy shop. There'll be some fun stuff coming though, including pouches knit from my hand-spun and some dope crocheted headbands!

Well, off to play on Ravelry some more :-)

Glad you made it to Ravelry, though I find it's hard to find the time to do all this socalizing and still get things done, it was great to start organizing my stash and finding local groups. I am also afraid that my ufo pile will become painfully apparent on there, hence many of my projects haven't been listed yet either! Hubby had same issues with the camera--will email with more info about his solution.

Welcome to Ravelry. It can become quite addictive ☺ I smiled at your unfinished projects comment. It's ok. I have 5 unmatched socks....

Congrats on getting into Ravelry! I've been there for months and the shine still hasn't worn off for me.
