Wow! How Have I Missed This?

So.. I was checking out a few things on Ravelry, as you do when you’re trying to decide (avoid) what you’re going to do next and I stumbled upon something I never knew you could do.

Before I go any further, I should point out that you’ve probably been able to do it forever and I’m just late to the party as per usual.

As we all know my newly discovered obsession is weaving, well that and sewing, spinning, etc, etc. ย Anyway, for the purposes of this post it’s weaving.

I love Ravelry, it’s an invaluable tool for so many different aspects of fibre crafting and I know there’s weaving on there, but I’ve only been able to find it in the past, by looking at the finished projects from people signed up to the groups I’m in.

Until today that is.

I’ve just discovered that I can look at all of the finished weaving projects listed on Ravelryโ˜บ๏ธ๐ŸŽ‰ย โœŒ๏ธ

Here’s how –

Click on to the people tab along the top of the Ravelry home page and you’ll find yourself here. ย Where you will find lots of useful places to explore.

There’s your Friends Activity, where you can check out what your Ravelry friends have been up to.

The section – A Random Assortment of People’s Favourites or their ugh’s (projects people they’ve scored with the lowest satisfaction) is great for inspiration, or not as the case may be.

There’s show us your FO’s and lastly at the bottom there is a section called ‘Your Neighbours’. ย This is a great feature because these people and you have some of the same patterns in your libraries, therefore must have similar tastes. ย I often begin a search here first if I’m looking to knit something new, as there’s a good chance one of my neighbours might already have a design listed in their favourites or their library that I’ll like.

The section we’re looking at today is the ‘Show us your FO’s’.

The weight of yarn used (great for stash busting)

and what the project was, eg clothing, accessory, etc.

Of course you can also search peoples knitting, crochet and machine knitted finished projects too.

The only problem I can see, is that I’m going to be so busy looking at other peoples work, I’ll get none of my own finishedย ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Back to Ravelry, ehm… I mean work ๐Ÿ˜‰

Happy Knitting!

  1. Yay! ๐Ÿ™‚ I never tried weaving before (maybe in primary school), but it’s good to know that! I still haven’t mastered all the searching features either … But it’s fun to explore and discover new stuff!! ๐Ÿ™‚
