I do love Ravelry. I check the new projects several times a day. I also look at the pattern tester's group, although I have never offered to knit a sample. Before I buy yarn I have never used before I check to see what comments people have posted. I like to see what itches, what pills, and what bleeds. I also check to see who made what with the new yarns I have bought. I just invested in some Tillie yarns using a birthday discount, which brought the price down from super-high, to enjoying it luxury. It is satisfying to see how others have used it and it saves me from making mistakes. Yay, Ravelry! I am glad to see it getting credit for being wonderful. Here are some of my projects!
