I haven't yet joined Ravelry, been avoiding it in fact. I have obsessive tendencies and these tendencies tend to explode around the opportunities to classify, divide, organize. In other words, I would happily pay for the privilege of sorting a giant pile of nuts and bolts. It meets some deep, primal need in the animal part of my brain.
I decided Ravelry was too dangerous for me.
Still, I just bought La Boheme by Fiesta Yarns. The colorway is African Violet in their language, Mardi Gras in mine. It glows like jewels. The thought of messing up $60 worth of this yarn was paralyzing me.
Enter a sneak peek at Ravelry to see what others were making with this yarn. Fortunately I hated almost everything. I finally decided on this and promptly bought the pattern.
I told you Ravelry was dangerous; I'm making a fucking poncho.
