Ideas for Browsing


Are you in the mood for browsing?  Just looking?  Nothing to commit to yet?

Here are some Ravelry folks who gave me some good ideas.  Nothing  I’m committing to yet, but some possibilities for when I cast off the Candle Flame Shawl .

Sandir on Ravelry had some gloves that looked entertaining.  Because I’m entertaining another full finger glove knit.

CJPilon had a large number of felted objects that turned out well on her project page.

Saraek has some darling tiny animals that could become ornaments for 2018 Christmas gifts.  This would require knittting, not needle felting.  I think the cats are adorable and worth a shot.

I can get lost on Ravelry and Pinterest.  I never think of it as wasted time, however.  Dreaming is so important in life.

Do you browse on Pinterest or Ravelry?  There’s a wealth of ideas on both.

Happy Saturday.  Off to the barn.  If you are going to the Womens’ March, I’m grateful to you!

  1. I spend a little time on Pinterest every day. I’ve found so many really good recipes there.
    To be honest I spend a lot of time on Ravelry every day. I read my usual forums, check out the new patterns and see what’s new with my friends. It’s a huge inspiration for me:)


  2. Have fun with the horses! I’m browsing for projects too–I’m going to post some ideas on my blog today. Plus a Calypso update!


  3. Answer: short and simple: No to either, especially Pinterest! I will look at Ravelry for a specific pattern/project…I’m trying to not “add” too many wannabe’s to my life…


  4. I do my browsing these days on YouTube. If I see someone making something I just have to do it. The ones with the supply lists are the worst because then I have to go and order all the stuff. Brilliant marketing technique-for which I am a total sucker.


  5. I do occasionally zip around in Pinterest and visit Ravelry mostly to see what’s going on in “We Love Lucy” there. But I don’t spend an inordinate amount of time in either place. Blogs are my favorite! Like yours! ((hugs)), Teresa 🙂


  6. I browse Ravelry a lot. I’ve never been able to figure out Pinterest for some reason. I also get lots of ideas from utube. There is a cowl that the Stitch Mistress made recently on her “Knit Style” podcast but I can’t remember the name of the cowl. I think it’s absolutely beautiful. But I’m not buying another pattern right now. I’ve spent enough recently. Have fun choosing your next project. Dreaming is always exciting! 🙂


  7. I’ve been browsing sock patterns. I have an idea for my March sock, but open to other ideas too.

    Pinterest — I have a love/hate relationship. So much junk on there to find the few gems.


  8. I love browsing Pinterest and Ravelry- it’s almost more fun to dream than to do. I’m going to have to look at the ornaments as I haven’t decided on a Christmas gift for 2018 yet


  9. I don’t do Pinterest much, but as I’m ‘self taught’ I just love browsing Ravelry; usually while I’m in the middle of knitting, but I always learn one thing or two by reading the notes and looking at pictures of garments close-up . That always makes me feel like I’ve made good use of my time.
