Ravelry-project organization
I thought I'd share this for Rav users. I discovered today after looking at Artlady's projects that you can organize your projects and your queue!! You click the organize tab and then create sets! I wish I could do it with my favorites, but that's not available at least for now.

I started today..Here's a screenshot of my tabs now on my project page.

I don't have very many projects on Ravelry as I just joined a month or so ago but I love the ability to organize! I very much like to organize my projects. Right now, I have all my downloaded patterns in an Excel spreadsheet including the source, designer, needles/hooks needed, and yarn/quantity. I had more patterns than I thought!

I've just discovered you can now add purchase date and price to your stash, which I think would be useful for other people looking to see how much things cost, or if a certain dyelot is likely to be still available

I saw the organize tab today but was disappointed that I couldn't sort the order of the projects.

Let me see, I could put my two projects on two tabs and call one "All" and the other "Nothing."

You can sort by using the drop down box, but with two projects you're probably good. You can also organize your queue which is usually much longer than your projects.

I wonder if some people wouldn't be a bit sickened by that feature. If they actually saw how much money they've spent on their stash printed out all at once...
