Introducing Pinterest, a Great Resource for Crafters

January 23rd, 2012

Pin It

Yarncrafting inspiration comes from so many different sources: colors, textures, drape, shapes, and more. Now there’s a way to create a virtual moodboard: Pinterest, a fun social network that’s a helpful resource for crafters.

Essentially, Pinterest allows you to curate different boards of images. This is perfect for bookmarking yarncrafting patterns, yarns you wish to purchase in the future, and motivational photographs. What I really love about Pinterest is that you can include a link to the original source, so you’ll always be able to track down your inspiration.

On the Lion Brand Pinterest page, we’ve been pinning both traditional craft patterns and more whimsical photographs, like this amazing sheep manicure:

I also have a particular affinity for classic Hollywood, so I’ve combined my love for film and yarncrafting into a board of actresses knitting and crocheting!

    Actress Joanne Woodward (wife of Paul Newman) knits.  There is a photograph of both of them together and she is knitting.

    What a great place! There are so many “pins” already that you almost don’t even have to look outside this site for great pins for your own boards. I love it! Definitely an idea whose time has come.

    So is it a Facebook thing or what? I don’t use my FB to log in to
    anything…ever…and I hate sites that force you to do that.  Is this
    one of those?? I went to the pinterest website following the above link and it took me to a page saying I had to allow access via my FB page.

    Also, I’m wondering is anyone else is having problems.  It’s making me leave my comment at a guest.  I have a Lion Brand account.  So I go to the upper right corner and click on “log in” and it takes me to a Word Press log in page.  But if I just go to my Lion Brand page I’m already signed in.  So I keep the signed in page up and open and refresh this page so that it shows me as logged in.  Nope.  I click on log in again and it’s the same thing… Word Press log in.  I’m so confused…
