My ColorJoy! Group on Ravelry

Friday, October 19th, 2007

For those who are not knitters and who read this blog, I need to explain a little. There is a new online community for knitters (sort of like MySpace for musicians but without the non-musician participants) called Ravelry. It is still in beta testing, which means that there is a waiting list to “get in” and some folks have been waiting a long time. I haven’t mentioned it here much yet because of that not-yet-inclusive angle.

Since I am home this week, I decided to get on there and really be sure my work is properly represented. I loaded all of my patterns (under designer name Lynn DT Hershberger) that were not already loaded. I loaded current and ongoing projects (including those knit from my patterns, with photographs) under my personal page.

And then today I started a group. It’s a lot like a Yahoo group but the correspondence is on a web page and as far as I can see you can’t get the correspondence sent to you as email. My group, again, is named: ColorJoy!

If you are on Ravelry, please say hi… add me as a friend if you wish, and please feel free to join my group. Say hello if you have a minute to write.

If you are not on Ravelry, I’m sorry to write something that excludes you… they think everyone will be invited aboard very soon and I hope you can join us at that time. You can go here and sign up to be included. Soon, very soon.
