Of course you see my links to Ravelry everywhere and I really enjoy that site. It’s heavy on the Knitters I think, but there are lots of wonderful groups that you can join in–and a lot of them have nothing to do with crafts! And their project notebooks are invaluable for keeping up with what projects you’ve done.
I thought I’d share with you a list of the groups that I moderate or run. If you check out Ravelry (and I hope you do) then come by and see what’s going on in these groups! You can join any of them at any time. You don’t have to start right at the first. Sometimes it’s fun doing the catch up!
2013 Crochet Block a Month CAL
This is a fantastic group. It’s been ongoing for several years now and I only joined in the middle of the year in 2011. But they’re entirely responsible for making my skills what they are today! The 2013 group is just gearing up. Check out the 2012 group to see how much fun we had!
50 Fabulous Squares
This group is working through the book “50 Fabulous Crochet Squares” from Leisure Arts. I choose two squares per month for everyone to work on. I occasionally have a contest in there, too!
99 Granny Squares
This group is working the book “99 Granny Squares to Crochet” from Leisure Arts. I choose one square per month for everyone to work on. This group is not as active but maybe we’ll have some new people in the new year!
This is for all those who are committing to crocheting a certain number of squares during 2013. I was the overachiever in last year’s group with my daily square. This year I’m only going to commit to 3 a week!
No Sheep For Me
I’ve just been handed this group recently and am looking to gear it up a little more in 2013. It’s for people who don’t like to use wool or other animal fibers. Whether it makes you itch, it’s against your principles, or you just plain don’t like it, this is the group for you. We’ll be exploring alternatives and advantages to those alternatives.
I belong to several other groups on Ravelry but these are the ones I hang around in the most and moderate. Come on over and join in! The more the merrier. Oh, and I’m known as Scraplyn on Ravelry.
And of course I’ll be here blogging things, too. Some squares. Some other projects. Some reviews. Some tips and tricks. Who knows!
