Another thing I REALLY like is that I can search for a book/magazine I've used and store it in my library, so I don't have to keep renewing it through my public library!!!!

I have a Ravelry account (see my sig for a link to it) but I rarely use it. I find this forum to be friendlier and easier to maneuver through. I guess I just like using forums rather than communities like Ravelry.

Yeah. But like I said before, they're 2 completely different things for me.

I use Ravelry for finding patterns, looking at other's projects and browsing for yarn. Like seeing how a certain yarn that you want to buy will look knitted up. I think I have over 200 patterns in my library. I belong to a sock knitting group where everybody is really friendly, but I got kicked out of the Lazy, Stupid and Godless group!

I guess I said something that wasn't politically correct to a few folks, and the whole board just went crazy, sort of a feeding frenzy. I didn't mind; I was holding my own, but then some of them started making some racist jokes because we have an adopted black daughter, which wasn't cool, so when I told a few of them off with some less than elegant language, the moderator told me I could "take some time off for reflection," and I figured I didn't have to reflect very long to figure out that I didn't need to spend time with cretins like that. I had already deleted myself from the group, actually, but they were gonna do it for me if I didn't 'behave', I guess... Whatever, I have a million other better things to do. It was pretty funny, actually.

People just love to control & insult people. Ridiculous.

Yes, Ravelry is great for ideas and tracking projects. It is a world-wide area to get and give ideas and thoughts. Here at KH is smaller and easier to find answers.
Two different forums and can be used for the best parts of each.

I belong to 5 horse forums and 2 dog forums. They all have different areas of interest for my life and animals.

Good to have options for all your interests!
