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.

  1. I totally agree with you! I end up spending key crafting time on Ravelry, yet there is so much to see and check out! I actually need some slippers too, but I tend to fail at felting… good luck! :)

  2. Oh, I hear you. Only it’s not just Ravelry – it’s knitting blogs too. The number of things I have seen on Rav or blogs and thought “I MUST knit that…” Causes tons of trouble.

  3. I am totally in love with the French Press Felted Slippers even though my feet are always too hot for slippers. heck, they’re too hot for thin socks in this house :)
