Yes, I've finally done it .. taken the plunge and joined Ravelry! I haven't had the time to really do more than just poke around it a bit, but it looks like a great community for knitters and crocheters.
I was thrilled to see that it is a pattern haven! Can't wait to upload some patterns of my own, but for now I'm having fun looking at all the massively talented people sharing their hard work, their patterns, and their creations. I was smitten by the look of the Osito Infant Bear Hat ... and I had been looking for something to make for a baby gift, so here is the hat I made!
I didn't have a live model to show you how super cute this looks worn, so a jar of marbles is standing in for a "head".
If anyone wants to catch up with me on Ravelry (or give a Ravelry newbie some advice), I'm Artifax on there.
