Hello, Ravelry!!!

I finally found another use for this, one of my many blogs. I have connected this to my profile on Ravelry, a website for knitters and crocheters. It's a great site. It's sort-of like a Facebook or MySpace for your yarn-related hobby. You can organise your projects, in-progress and finished, you can have a queue of projects you want to do, list your yarn stash, keep track of hooks and needles, books, magazines and patterns. There's even a great way to search for patterns. Many of them are free! I'm so glad I finally, after a year and 3 months of crocheting, joined this site.

I have spent time lovingly photographing and uploading my projects and my stash, and choosing from the amazing range of projects on offer. I didn't need another reason to be any more fired up about crochet, but I've got one anyway. This is fantastic!

But most of the people who will see this are already on Ravelry. Hi, everyone! :) Have I got this right now? Not sure- it's been a while since I've dealt with RSS feeds...

I'm going to my old standby, Walthamstow market tomorrow to find some more DK in brighter colours than I already have, so I can make the amigurumi birds I have downloaded. The stall that's there on Thursdays has 100g balls of robin DK for a pound. I suppose that's as good as it gets, right? Bring it on!
