Oregon had an unusually warm winter this year, which really made me miss the freezing cold midwest and east coast winters I am used to. As compensation, I did an extra lot of knitting for friends in cold climates.
I've been using Ravelry to house and organize all of my projects. Its so useful. I am always super organized, but knitting was the one thing where I wasn't. I just had tons of yarn in bags and no record of anything. Thank god for who ever started Ravelry. Now I can record all of the yarn I have, note what needles I have on a handy chart, and document my process and past projects with photos and links to all the patterns. Like the Basecamp for knitting (and I love Basecamp). Its also great to look at what other people are making and search through tons of patterns to discover what to make next.
If you're a knitter and on Ravelry, be my friend! jfranknberry (note: you can only see my page if you have an account)
