Exactly. It's my main go to place to search for patterns, find out what patterns have been made with a specific yarn, etc. I have all my projects and notes there and I pretty much gave up my blog for Rav now.

I prefer KH hands down when it comes to forums though. Rav is useful, but KH is like a small hometown..but one where there are lots of experts in knitting.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

Yes, Ravelry is very useful! However, it is only as useful as you make it. To get the full benefit of the software, you need to enter your project and stash (yarn) details, along with photos.

It is a lot of work to set up your Ravelry Notebook, but once you will go to work for you! There is also a great QUEUE feature, that allows you to gather up patterns for your future knitting. Once a project has been saved to your QUEUE, the Rav software will tell you which yarns in your stash will fit the pattern requirements.

My favorite bit: when I've entered a finished project, stating how much of a particular yarn was used, the Rav software subtracts it from my Stash page for that particular yarn, and tells me how much I have left. Down to the grams, ounces and yards!

So I signed up. And I am trying to figure it out. And looking for new ideas.
The fact that my internal arrangement differs from yours, doctor, pleases me to no end.
