suzy popped up (again!)

...another successful pop up shop in Canberra is done and dusted.

Thank you to all who came from near and far to see me. So many lovely faces - familiar and new!

I always find it so sad to pack it all away in bags, boxes and tubs. It's such a treat for me to have it out on display too. Maybe one day it can be out all the time. ;)

ravelry 101 | how to tag within your queue

Is your Ravelry queue groaning at the seams? Do you remember putting something gorgeous in there and now you can't find it?

Well if you are like me and spend a huge amount of time on Ravelry and are always adding projects to your queue, you will want to be able to access them easily in the future.

Well today's blog post is perfect. It is another in my 'Ravelry 101' series. This post will show you how to add tags to the projects within your Ravelry queue, change the yarn for that project when it's within the queue, and then search your queue by tag.
