I'm in Love!

…with Ravelry! I got my invitation to join on Friday, and now I can’t stay off it! I used to waste so much time searching online for photos of projects completed with particular yarns (to see how the yarn actually looks worked up), but now I can just go to Ravelry, type in the name of a yarn, and see photos of projects done with that yarn! How awesome is that?! I also love that I can narrow projects down by knit or crochet, because some yarns (like self-striping or multicolored yarns) look different crocheted than they do knitted. I’m also thrilled that I can swap and buy yarn through Ravelry – now I can buy some discontinued Lion Brand Cotton-Ease colors that I’ve been itching to get my hands on, but can’t buy on EBay without getting outbid! I don’t have any projects posted on Ravelry yet, but if you want to stop by and say hello, my Ravelry name is redhairedlady (of course!).

Welcome to Ravelry! I'm on too but haven't had much time to explore, but I do love the search features Ravlery has!!

Oh, I'm soooo jealous of your ravelry invite! I jumped on the waiting list a few weeks ago, so it will be forever until I get in. Gah.

In the meantime, which Cotton Ease colors are you looking for? I got some in a destash deal a few months ago, and it turns out I don't have as much use for it as I thought. I've got some white, some pink, and some blue. Email me at lazymamadesigns@yahoo.com if you want to maybe swap or buy some cheap :)
