Some of our favourite websites
- Ravelry began as one person's solution to navigating the huge amount of information about knitting and crochet scattered all over the Internet. Jess wanted a way to bring together as much of this information as possible. With the help of Casey, a programmer, Jess built a site that is not only a huge repository of information, but is fully interactive, with forums and groups of all nationalities and interests, but also a marketplace for independent and boutique designers. Ravelry currently has almost 1 million members! Ravelry is free to use and join.
