I am not ashamed to admit that I've lost a couple of afternoons starting to look for one project and then just link clicking away.

Angela I have too! It's just too easy to find so many :inlove: projects.cloud9

It is amazing and I think anyone can get lost in there. Haha! I rarely have a time when I can't find a pattern I want or a pattern for someone else when they're looking.

Wow ... glad I'm not alone. I, too, have gotten lost in the Ravelry database before ... but I'm not complaining! :)

Before you start looking at patterns take a large ball of yarn and tie one end to the chair you are sitting on. Keep the yarn in your pocket and let a little out each time you go to another link. If you get lost just start rewinding your yarn and let it lead you home.

If you get to the end of the yarn ball you have been at it too long and need a break.

I just LOVE the pattern and yarn function on ravelry. I can spend hours pouring over the pages!!

:roflhard: I'd probably have to jump up and trip over the yarn and break something...mostly on me. :lol:
