Socks with Sarah started Wednesday & I have been b-u-s-y getting everything up & running smoothly over on the Ravelry group. While our official start date has come & gone, please know that I’m happy to honor an open enrollment policy — just hop over and join up if you’re interested. We’ll be happy to have you!
You know, every time I think this group can’t possibly get better, it does. I’m so lucky to have so many helpful folks with so many great ideas participating. Thanks to some of these awesome knitters who came up with some wonderful ideas & helped brainstorm a way to make them work, I’ve got a couple new resources to share with the group.
Because there have been some changes, to make it easy on everyone I’m going to go ahead and walk you through how to use the different threads & resources on the Friends of Knitting Sarah Ravelry group.
Socks with Sarah Main Thread: This is the main area for the Socks with Sarah KAL. This is where I need y’all to sign-up (just hop on & let me know you want to be added to the list). It’s also the spot for chatting & questions & WIP photos.
SWS Recommended Patterns Thread: By request, this is an indexed place for Socks with Sarah knitters to share their favorite patterns. Please read the guidelines for submission carefully before posting.
SWS Recommended Resources Thread: By request, this is an indexed place for Socks with Sarah knitters to share their favorite sock knitting resources. Please read the guidelines for submission carefully before posting.
SWS FO Catalog (photos & links only) Thread: Just as the title implies, this thread is for finished socks! Please read the guidelines for submission carefully before posting & please resist the urge to comment here — direct your oooohs & aaahhhhs to the Main thread, pretty please.
Say Hi! Thread: Just like it sounds, this is for anyone — KALer and general group member alike to say hi & introduce him/herself.
Today on *your* needles… Thread: Just like the ‘Today on my needles…’ serial here on my blog, share what you’re working on today. We’d love to see!
Ask Knitting Sarah Thread: This is a general question & answer area — check out the first post for specifics, but if you have questions about things I’ve written, materials & tools I’ve used, techniques I write about, or any other general knitting and spinning related item, this is your spot to ask.
Inspire Me Thread: Because I think it’s too easy to be hard on ourselves for perceived imperfections, this is the place to say, “I made this and I really like how it turned out.” It’s not about showing-off, it’s about being proud of your work & sharing the awesome!
Tell Me More Thread: This is your chance to make requests and suggestions for things I should write about here on the blog.
You’ll notice the Socks with Sarah Main Thread is spelled out in so many words, but the other KAL-related threads start with ‘SWS.’ This is due to formatting issue & how the titles appear on your screens. The abbreviation should make everything a little more user friendly. Of course, threads not beginning with an ‘SWS’ are general. As always, if you have any questions or suggestions just let me know!
Enjoy the improvements to the group & look forward to hearing from you!
