I saw this on Eat, Sleep, Knit’s blog and wanted to share it also!
As some of you already know, Ravelraiser ’08 began this weekend – this is a push to raise funds to support this amazing free community. If you aren’t on Ravelry yet, you need to be, and if you are on Ravelry, you’ve probably found yourself wondering what you did for patterns, yarn information, stash management, and daily knitterly online entertainment before it existed (or while we were on the seemingly endless waiting list last year!).
What started out as a husband-and-wife team working on a weekend project has become a global knit and crochet community with tens of thousands of active members from all over the globe, in every age group and skill level. Ravelry has contributed so much to the knitting community, and now we want to give back.
If you go to this thread and donate 10 lousy bucks, you’ll be entered into drawings for fabulous yarn-and-fiber-related prizes, including the grand prizes – five (or maybe six now?) “Dream Stashes” – and the other prizes, which include yarn club memberships, yarn, roving, and gift certificates to several fine yarn establishments. You get one entry for every $10 you donate, and check out all of the amazing prizes!
Seriously, $10 bucks is such a bargain. I have spent endless hours of PURE enjoyment on Ravelry. Good luck too all who donate!!
