You know I've been having a lot of fun with yarn this past month, and I think I mentioned Ravelry.com. A friend shared it with me, and I'm enjoying searching for projects and posting my creations online too. Perhaps it will encourage other beginner-intermediate level crocheters to explore the world beyond the scarf.
Today I read the "About Our site" page on www.ravelry.com/about and this paragraph gives a better description than I might. Plus, if you go to the link, you can scroll down the page and see a photo of the founders' cute dog.
"Ravelry is a place for knitters, crocheters, designers, spinners, and dyers to keep track of their yarn, tools, and pattern information, and look to others for ideas and inspiration. ... So what can you personally do on Ravelry? You can talk about your own projects, integrate that information into your personal website, and contribute to someone else's project a world away. If you are not a blogger, we give you a great way to share and show off your projects, participate ... and socialize with other crafters. If you are a blogger, then Ravelry is the perfect complement to your online journal; it provides structure and organization. All of your information is easy to enter and easy to find. "
My projects are nothing to boast about, but I've kept a head or two warm this week. The picture here is of a Beehive hat I made; it's from Vogue's Crocheted Hats on the go!
