Ravelry has been such a great resource for knitters and crocheters. I find that when I’m searching for information on a pattern or yarn, I’ll go to Ravelry before I Google it. I keep track of my stash, projects, and the patterns I dream about making some day. In addition to being a great resource and a place to organize all-things-yarn, I go to Ravelry for ideas and inspiration. It helps me answer the question, “I have this great yarn…now what?” Look up a yarn on Ravelry, and you’ll find hundreds, even thousands of projects other people have shared. It’s easy to lose track of time while jumping from one project page to the next, as your pattern queue grows and grows.
We’re starting a new feature on the blog this week where we’ll share some of the great Ravelry projects that catch our eyes which use our Valley Yarns. Some are original designs, free patterns, Ravelry downloads…they come from many sources. But they’ll all be great examples of Ravelry users who have discovered our yarns and created something wonderful.
Here are some of the patterns that grabbed our attention this week.
1. Owls & Tigers & Zebras, Oh My! hats by Katy Wight knit in Valley Yarns Northampton Bulky.
2. ShanthiDragon’s Dark and Stormy by Thea Colman knit in Valley Yarns Northampton.
