I used my Ravelry project queue today. I picked 3 projects and bought the yarn to make them.
1. Starsky from Knitty- yarn: Knit Picks Bare Peruvian Highland Wool Bulky weight.
2. German Stocking by Cookie A.- yarn: Knit Picks Donegal fingering weight in natural/bare.
3. Hourglass sweater from "Last Minute Knitted Gifts"- yarn: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in sapphire heather.
So, my thoughts...
Like a lot of knitter we have many projects that we oogle from books, pattern sites, and fav blogs. But, when it comes to purchasing yarn and starting a project, It would take me awhile to find them and decide which ones I like the best, and what type of yarn to use. Now, with Ravelry I have my list, I pick from this list, and can find out what types of yarns others are using. Great site! No more cluttered queue in my brain. My brain is not always a nice place to be.
