I finally did it.
I joined Ravelry.
There are many reasons why...
The number one reason being that when other knit bloggers refer to something they have seen...or an inspiration from a knitter on Raverly...I could never see it! So now, I am in.
There has been a lot of talk lately about the lack of knit blogging due to Flicker and Ravelry groups. I don't see these as substitutes to knit blogging...although I have been slacking in the blogging area lately...I will still be blogging as often as I can. I do like to see progress posts on projects as well as FO posts...and I will continue to do both.
For me, Ravelry will serve more of a community of knitters to bounce ideas off of...or be inspired by...or trade some yarn with...as well as an inventory of my own knitting supplies.
I will slowly start to post pictures of my stash...kind of a stash cleansing...which in a way is really scary.
I will have to own up to the amount of yarn in the house.
So far, I have put up some FO photos of knits from 2007 and current projects. I will put in notes of techniques used, needle size used etc...which will hopefully help with my memory problem.
Ah yeah...casting on for the second Gauntlet, I couldn't remember for the life of me the needles I used (I do remember having a problem with gauge on a certain size) or the cast on...I remember playing with a couple of them...I am pretty sure it was just long tail.
Any who...come see me on ravelry...
Oh yes...people are knitting some of my patterns there! So exciting! I have contacted the good people of ravelry to link those to my profile! Love it!
And now...a progress post.
The second twisted stitch gauntlet is on the go...it wasn't that hard to get back into it...hopefully I will finish it up by the weekend...
