Even though it has a way of vacuuming up huge chunks of time I need for homework, housework, and knitting, I love Ravelry. I've come across tons of projects to add to my (already overburdened) queue, I have fun in the forums, and I love checking out other people's project lists, stashes, and queues. It's voyeurism, but in a totally nice way. We knitters are friendly folk, after all.
One of the coolest things about Ravelry is that, as a designer, I get to see other people actually knitting my patterns. If someone mentions they've had a problem in their "notes" section, I love that I can comment or PM them and help out. And, of course, I love seeing happy FOs! Megan sent me this adorable Baby Brunhilde shot for the customer gallery, and I just had to share. Too cute!
