Why I love Ravelry

Simply put, I love Ravelry because they refer to projects as WIPs – work in progress. Until I met Ravelry, these were always UFOs – unfinished objects. WIP = earnest knitter, slow but by all means steady, a real trooper. UFO = freak of nature, lazy knitter and all around ‘I am a loser’ vibe. WIPs tell the world that we are ambitious multi-tasking people who won’t settle for just one project! NO, bring ’em on…I can take it. UFOs conjure up images of ADD and fickle-pickles. Even when it comes to me, I am definitely a WIP (contrary to public opinion)!
