But there's so much more there I feel like I'm missing out on a lot of great things that would be valuable to me in my knitting life.

Does anyone have any advice on navigating the site? After all, everyone was a new member at some point. Am I the only one whose jaw dropped when they got a load of the sheer SIZE of the site? Holey Moley! Knitter's Paradise!

But it's only Paradise if you know your way through the Kingdom!

Thanks in advance for your advice,

Ruthie

I know exactly how you feel. I've been lurking in Ravelry since I first joined this group. (I went by Lady Truck Driver, then changed my login name to one I liked better.) Anyway, I need help too!

Hi!

YES! "Lurking" describes it EXACTLY!

I live in a somewhat rural area and we've got a lot of turkey buzzards that soar way up, "lurking" so to speak, looking for something to dive down on! When I read your post that's the first thing I thought of!!!

What a hoot! Lurking like a turkey buzzard on Ravelry, prepared to swoop down the instant we see something interesting or recognizable! Or figure out how to use one of the features!

My sides hurt! Thanks for that!

I'm sure we'll learn a lot from the answers we get to this post! Thanks to all for your input!

Happy swooping,

Ruthie
