I just heard about Ravelry… I am out of the loop. The online knitting/yarn-arts community is huge. It feels like grade 8 – I want in but I’m worried that they won’t accept me! I’m not that good at knitting. I just try to be. Anyway – I signed up for an invite to Ravelry so we’ll see what happens.
I would also love to host/co-host a swap… I’m really getting into it. I miss hosting and organizing events at school. I think it’d be tons of fun to do it online with a cohort of knitters!
