I *Heart* Databases

There's something about Ravelry that feeds my inner-OCD — it's the enormitude (made up word) of interconnectivity in an online database — I love it. It satisfies my deep need to connect all people that I know, sort of know, should know, will know, etc. Bethany suspected that I was lost over there, hence the no posting here.

While I've been "gone" I've been searching through other fiber folks' finished objects, queued projects, misc patterns, etc. I saw that Fricknits is thinking about yarn while she's on blog break — that made me happy. I bought my first yarn for socks from Emily. Hopefully, I'll carve out the time to do it. I've never worked with double pointed needles, and wonder how the project will live with so many busy little hands around here. I'm a sucker for pink and red.

An informal focus group showed only one, of three people in my LYS, is up and running with Ravelry. Come on people! Get over there already, so we can connect.

I am such a database books, entered in a database. My addresses, in a database. I love the database that is ravelry, it's so terribly efficient.

I've created a MONSTER! But yes, I do love lists and databases myself. Must be the inner reference librarian in us all.
