Why I Love Ravelry

I've been sweating for the past two days on how to design a scarf to match Samantha's Shedir hat, which is done by the way. She can be very, uh, let's say 'particular' about this sort of thing, so I knew I couldn't make do with a cable pattern that kinda matched. I swatched Saturday evening with leftover yarn and all I got for my trouble was a hot mess o' crap. Then, what to my wondering mind should occur, but a forum search on Ravelry for 'shedir scarf' only to find someone else had already asked my question a month ago. Two clicks later and I found the perfect scarf; meet Achernar. Thank you Ravelry, thank you.

I love that scarf! I just queued it up myself in Ravelry. Don't you just love that site?!?!

Yup, reason #857 that I love Ravelry.

Need a pattern?
Have a pattern?
Have a partiuclar yarn and don't know what to do with it...etc etc. etc.

That's why Ravelry is such a time sink for me. There's always something to add to the queue and increase the imbalance between knitting progress and the queue of upcoming knits.

I love your overdyed S'Mores yarn. It looks terrific.

Thanks for stopping by the other day, I've added your name to the "spreadsheet of yarny goodness".

I have a question, if you know how to add the widget like you have to the side that shows your projects progress on the sidebar of your blog???

Thanks so much!!!
