test

Just in time for Tour De Fleece…

Imagine my surprise when I woke up (admittedly late) this morning and saw a tweet from redshirtknitting saying that Ravelry was beta testing a new feature for spinners! Hooray! It’s almost too good to be true.

For quite some time I have been adding my hand spun yarn to the database, but like you would add commercial yarn. I would forever have to, if I wasn’t feeling lazy that day, try and enter notes about the characteristics of the yarn. Is it a 2 ply? 3 ply? What was my WPI again? If I didn’t enter all the info at that particular moment, some of the info might be lost to time and my poor memory.

I decided to opt in for the beta testing and try plugging a skein of my new tour de fleece yarn in.

I like that it pretty much covers everything I might possibly need as far fields. Ratio? Twist angle? But I do everything according to “feel”! Crap…I’m going to have to start paying attention to my spinning, aren’t I? I also like that all the hand spun that I had entered “ghetto” style had already populated the hand spun tab. I love it when I have less work to do!

Maybe this means I can start adding my fiber to my actual stash. I had added a couple of braids, but it was kind of a pain, so I stopped.

Thanks to Tour de Fleece and Ravelry, I see not only stash busting, but some serious stash organization, in my near future!
