My latest online diversion has been getting my Ravelry account set up and populated. These days, I'm adding yarns to my stash and then assigning patterns to them. There is a method to my madness, you see.

Last year, my goal was to make my book reports more useful and read-able. I think I did a pretty good job keeping up with it. I slacked a lot on the Amazon and Goodreads rankings, but I did keep up with the "why I picked it up" and "who should read it" parts of my reports.

This year, my goal is to keep track of my spinning and knitting projects, fiber stash, and ideas. And while I'm at it, I'm "blogging them" (posting them to Ravelry) to share with my fiber friends too. Hopefully that will get me motivated to actually complete things as well as take pictures of them for posterior posterity.

In my head, I think that, eventually, my fiber reports should be like my book reports. Once I've evolved enough in my work, that is. I should be able to say when I completed something, why I started it, and who I recommend should either knit the pattern or own the completed project.

Have stalked you on Ravelry, as I've found your book reports illuminating, and would like to follow your fibre reports, as well.

The joys of Ravelry. I love it for keeping my knitting supplies, patterns, books, yarn stash, and projects organized. There is a place where you can keep track of your knitting books and needles.
