Knitters/crocheters, have you heard of Raverly?

Whoa now! Another social networking site to join for crafters!

So just what is Raverly? Take a look below to see what Ravelry is all about.

  • 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.
  • The content here is all user- driven; we as a community make the site what it is. The Yarn Harlot wrote recently about Representing, showing the world the power of our community, and I believe that on this site we can really show the strength of our numbers and the depth of our creativity.
  • 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 in -alongs, and socialize with other crafters. If you are a blogger than 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. You will not need to update your own FO album again- it is all here on Ravelry!

Unfortunately, Raverly is still in beta (think “test”) mode right now, so there is a waiting list of people waiting to become testers. But you can still sign up for the list! Take a look and give it a shot. I’m not a yarn person so much, so I’d love to hear feedback from people who are and have joined the site or would like to.

Thanks to Dave for the crafty tip!
