Wow I finally got onto Ravelry. I think I signed up on the waiting list several months ago. They are inviting 400 people a day and it took that long to get to me. This is the the coolest site. It is a place for knitters and crocheters to keep track of their projects; finished, in progress and wish list. It also has areas to keep track of your yarn stash, needles, books, favorite patterns, etc. Then there are categories that you can look through of projects that people have made. For example sweaters has 198 pages of photos people have posted. It is so fun to see patterns that you may have thought about knitting knitted up by someone else and read their comments about making it. There are also forums, chats and links to blogs. One could spend some serious time here.
