A Ravelversary Contest!
My brother is the king of neologisms. He has mastered the art of creating hilarious words that instantly seem at once insane and indispensable. In his former back yard we had drinks in the 'yogazebo', a structure that would be perfect for yoga if either one of us were even remotely interested in physical activity. He talks about having 'snackitude', that is, a snack-positive attitude (we both have it). And the B-52's are a 'party-centric' band, an element that makes the Darling Resident Marxist Curmudgeon write them off. Now I've come up with my very own made -up word with a meaning all its' own: Ravelversary!
This month represents a year that I have been on Ravelry and experiencing the endlessly mind-blowing elements that it has to offer. It is my Ravelversary. Just when you think you have discovered everything there is to love about Ravelry, you come upon a new feature that is suddenly indispensable. I have recently mentioned the 'friend activity' button and the new worlds it has opened up for me. Now I want you to tell me about your favorite new aspect of Ravelry and leave a comment on this post before midnight on 4/23, at which time I'll draw a random winner. Your prize? The above-pictured yarn souvenir from the Phildar shop in Montpellier. This was the only souvenir I purchased on my recent trip to France (except for the scads o' cash that I spent in the pharmacie on French shampoo and effervescent vitamins, but that doesn't count) and I want one of you to have it!
So, what is your new fave Ravpplication? How do you Ravelfy these days? Don't be a Ravtard and answer the question...
