New Name - and Ravelry

Just a note to say - I've changed to my Real World name - easier all round. So that's Emily - I was using Ginny as an alias..... but I've got over myself.

Also, I've just logged on to Ravelry - the brainchild of Frecklegirl and her partner. I think I'll find it a very useful site on which to keep info about my horde - yarns, needles, patterns, books, queueing projects - and also to check out what other people have used a yarn for, or what a pattern has looked like. Of course, I can do all this with google, searching blogs and other sites, but this seems a very neat way of managing it all easily. And it'll move with me to Australia.

It's all good! I gather they are gradually sending out more and more invites to join - doing it that way in order not to suddenly crash as the partner is the only techguy, and he has a real job!

Hi Emily, first, your Tuscany is beautiful, and now- thanks so much for your compliments on my Josephine! I'm so excited that you will be knitting one, too. It's a great little sweater! PS: Yay for Crusoe- I knit a pair of those, too!

Thanks for the link to Ravelry - I've signed up and am waiting to hear. It looks as if it will be very useful.

I'm going to Wonderwool on Saturday too and really looking forward to it. I don't think we shall get there much before 12 though.

Hi Emily, sorry I've been such a neglectful blogger, and not checked your blog after you commented on mine. You've been knitting some lovely things, the socks and the Tuscany shawl.

You're it! I've tagged you for the Seven Things meme.
