Well I have nothing as far as knitting progress goes to post about so I am going to discuss my love for Ravelry. I just love searching for patterns on Ravelry. A lot of the time when I find myself looking for something to do and don't feel like knitting I go on to Ravelry and just look at patterns. This however has turned into a slight problem because I had so many things in my queue that I had to move all but a few of them into favorites a while ago and the ones in my favorites are just basically patterns that I like and may possibly make one day. I have over 400 there at the moment because whenever I like something I just add it to my favorites and then end up looking at all the other patterns by that designer and then end up adding a bunch of those to my favorites. I will probably never get to most of these but I just find it fun and relaxing to look at patterns when my mind just isn't up for knitting. I almost like doing this more than posting and reading the forums. I am at the point where I am thinking about going through my favorites and thinking about which ones I may actually make in the future and which ones I won't so that I delete the ones I don't think that I will make. This is something that I am somewhat dreading doing and may not end up doing at all because I love them all and really probably won't know whether I will knit them until I decide to knit them. I have a fear that I will delete them and then decide I want to knit them later and won't be able to find them because I won't remember the name or the designer's name. I know that sounds crazy but I just like to keep my options open and like to know where I can find them if I want them. Anyways I would love to hear what you guys all love about Ravelry and whether anyone else does the same thing. Hopefully I will have some knitting to post later this week we will see.
