I've been enjoying exploring the Beta version of Ravelry for the past couple of weeks---looking at what other people are doing, checking out patterns, starting to put up my own projects and stash. But, today I really got to experience the community aspect of Ravelry. It's awesome! I noted the completion of the Bella Blouse on Ravelry. Within a couple of hours, I'd received 3 messages commenting on Bella, all from people I don't know! It brings a smile to my face :-) Made me realize how few are the folks with whom I can share my knitting details and joys.
