Hello Ravelry, Goodbye DeStash


I’m jumping on the new knitting bandwagon Ravelry.com. It’s like friendster for knitters, and it helps you organize your projects and stash. My handle is the same as the blog, newyorkminknit, so if you want to give me a shout-out there, please do so. I haven’t had time to really play with it, but I was amused by a flickr posting that said “How Can I Get Ready for Ravelry?”

I’m jumping off the knitting bandwagon of DeStash, even before I ever posted anything, because sadly, it is closing down. I’ve been getting a million emails today about former members trying to start a new version though. Though I wish the former DeStashers luck, it seems like the demand for DeStash could be filled with just a little tweaking at Ravelry…

    Yep! We are definitely going to have a trade/ sell option on Ravelry. You can set yarns in your stash as one you are willing to sell or trade but we haven’t had time to set up the rest of it!

    I’m going to be joining Ravelry as well. I hope to see you on when I finally get in.
