I am pleased to announce that I am now a “Yarnie” on Ravelry. Yarnies are hand spinners and dyers who can list their yarn creations in Ravelry’s database of yarns.
Just in case you haven’t heard of Ravelry, it’s like Facebook for knitters and crocheters and so much more. It combines forums on practically anything you can think of with a fantastic database of knitting and crochet patterns, a database of yarn, and a place called projects where you can put those together as well as several places for storing ideas and plans for the future.
Here’s a link to my PurpleLamb brand page so far:
It’s definitely a work in progress, and as it isn’t set up for the one-of-a-kind yarns I often make, I have had to come up with collections of similar yarns to be “bases” with info and pictures for each individual yarn within the collection.
In the meantime, I have an appointment with a local yarn store to see if they will carry my yarns. Wish me luck!
