Ravelry; An Ode on the Sixth
I really can't believe it, but I've been a Ravelry member for six years today.
Chances are very good that you, dear reader, are also a Ravelry member. We're part of a fantastic community, one that is wide and welcoming and supportive and foundational. It's fundamentally changed the way we interact with our craft, and it's enabled so many knitterly people to do so very many new and exciting things.
The centrality of the information, the ease of search, the beautiful layout, and the sense of fun make it the most vibrant, educational, inspirational, and safe place that I've been a part of online.
And to be most specific, it's the reason why I do so many of the things I do on this blog.
Indie Designer Days would not exist if not for Ravelry. I would be much the poorer for the vital communication link it provides me to knitters around the world. And it's essentially the reason I'm a knitwear designer.
It's so mufti-faceted that I'm likely only using a very small percent of the site.
And that's where you come in!
Tell me, what's your favourite thing about Ravelry?
