reflection or regard of the understanding.
It's Day 2 of November and I'm already seriously questioning the whole
NaBloPoMo. At any rate, I have been planning this post for a while, so perhaps it is a good motivation.
Thoughts on Ravelry:
I love Ravelry. I do. I got all sorts of great tips yesterday for my new February Sweater (one of 370+ posted). Yarns. Needles. Modifications. Things to watch out for. It was fabulous. Until I realized that I myself was not really interested in posting my own project.
Am I just a leech? I use the queue feature, the extensive research functions available, and I did once post some of my stash. But I'm just not inspired to put up all my own projects, even my own stash, or any of that useful stuff. Why not?
For one, I don't usually use Flickr, so that creates an extra step. And then there's that I'm blogging. And if I blog something, I'm not inspired to upload it onto another site. And then there's that I already have a good way of managing my stash (a spreadsheet - we'll discuss how the stash has grown at another time . . .), and my WIPs (a legal pad. Sometimes low-tech is good.).
So is it wrong to get so much out of Ravelry without contributing much of my own? How do you use Ravelry? Any other thoughts?
