As evident of Sue and Jan's tops, we tend to travel in packs as knitters don't you think? My problem is there are so many cool things out there that I want to knit that others are knitting. And certainly not enough hours in the day to knit everything I want to.
Ravelry has fueled alot of patterns out there. With just a click of the mouse I can see a pattern that someone else has knitted, get ideas of yarn possibilities, see how it looks a someone close to my body type...
I need more time.
