>OK. Here’s the thing. It is nearly impossible in blog format to answer crochet questions person to person in an efficient way. So, if any readers need answers about any of my books, designs, patterns and such, please hold that thought and go over to Ravelry.
Ravelry is the site where we play. All fiber enthusiasts are welcome to sign up and join the fun, whether it’s crochet, knitting, spinning, weaving… it’s all good. This is a free ride, no fees, no hassles, no junk e-mail, pretty much no downside. Well, actually there is one fairly significant downside. You’ll find yourself spending so much time there that you won’t get anything else done. Trust me.
The site is the brainchild of Jessica and Casey Forbes, a young, brilliant, adorable couple. Jess is the knitter; Casey is the code monkey. Together they built this central web site where we can share and organize information about the fiber arts. In just a couple of years, Ravelry has grown to include nearly 350,000 members from all over the world.
When you click on the link I’ve provided, you can put yourself on a waiting list. Being asked to wait really sucks, but this has nothing to do with exclusivity. I understand the waiting list is necessary for technical reasons. Hey, you don’t want the site to crash, do you? So please don’t be put off. In a couple of days you’ll receive an invitation to join and all will be worth the delay.
Once you’re in and you’ve looked around, search “Doris Chan” and you’ll get to my design pages, where you can find practically everything I’ve ever done, with images, information and links to available patterns. Please wander over to a Rav group that is dedicated to my designs, Doris Chan: Everyday Crochet. On the group’s forum you’ll be able to ask all your crochet questions for me and the posse, hundreds of friendly crochet fans who are eager to help.
Thank you for your interest in my stuff. Hope to see you at Ravelry! :-)
