I found it while I was looking at a Harry Potter golden snitch knitting pattern and it seemed like one of the most amazing ideas ever. You know I love free patterns right? Well this site is full of them.
It's basically a community site for knitters and crocheters (which maybe explains why I've missed out on it till now, because I still can't knit or crochet properly).
You can sign in, find free patterns (though there are ones that you can buy too), keep track of the patterns you're tackling, upload photos of your own projects, keep track of your supplies and generally just talk to other crafty people. So while you can keep track of what projects you're taking part in, you can also see how many other people are attempting it too. It's amazing.
I totally look forward to learning how to knit or crochet properly so that I can properly take part in this, because it looks like a lot of fun.
In the meantime, here are some of the coolest free patterns I found on the site.
