|Did you notice how I have added my shadow of me taking the photo? I am a person of many talents (not all of them useful)|
Both these sites are free to join www.ravelry.com and www.knittingparadise.com
I also belong to similar groups for quilting, also free (of course!) to join. The British Quilt List at groups.yahoo.com/groups/BQL
I've also decided to post at dates that are multiples of 5 (you know, the 5th, 10th, blah blah blah). I do most things in groups of five - don't know why? Also, one of the blogs I follow scientificquilter.wordpress.com suggests going on a '15 minute March' - sew for 15 mins a day in March. 15 is not auspicious enough, so I changed it to 25 mins (5X5) a day and also, I have 5 projects that get worked on in succession. This is all in an effort to get stuff done and get organised. This, of course, is the only thing which costs money, as I had to buy a daily planner (make one myself in Word - are you serious?) and a daily chalk board - the best thing about this is that you can list a task to do and then just erase it when you don't actually do it.
