If you're an knitter or crocheter with delusions of organization, and if you want to network with the like-minded, you will love Ravelry, a new social networking site for yarn people. The site is still in beta, but it's been assembling a waiting list since early summer. People in the queue are being added a few at a time.
I got my invite last week and have been navigating around, getting to know the site. You can set up a profile and document your current and future projects. You can also join special interest groups that are forming like crazy--groups for everything from Dachsund-loving knitters, to Harry Potter enthusiasts.
Patterns and books link intuitively to project information and pictures can be seamlessly imported from Flickr.
One of the coolest things I've seen so far is the ability to link to other knitters and crocheters working on the same projects. One mouse click turns up a slew of potential friends, who would probably be available for knitting moral support and hand-holding. That's my kind of social networking!
