The Paradox of Ravelry

I have been extremely obsessed lately with looking at patterns for felted slippers on Ravelry. So much so that I’ve spent more time doing pattern searches and clicking through the results than I’ve spent knitting anything. I’m especially taken by the ballerina style slippers (especially the ones available only in German, damnit!) and these extremely cute crochet’d ones. Then again, these ones are nifty too. If I spent less time on Ravelry I could have knitted (or crochet’d!) dozens of pairs of slippers by now, but if it weren’t for Ravelry I wouldn’t know all those patterns even existed. Erg. My head hurts.
