Web of Yarn: Scribd.com

So in honor of the first week of NaNoWriMo – in which I am terribly behind by the way, I wanted to talk about scribd.com

Scribd.com is a “social publishing company” which means that you can publish just about anything you want and share it with the world.

This makes it a great resource for all sorts of different information. In relation to knitting and crochet in particular, if you search either term, you’ll see that there are more than 1000 entries for each. Everything from patterns to tutorials to sample pages of published books come up. Some e-books are also available, but for a price.

Scribd also has a community element, and you can subscribe to different groups and find people who share like interests.

I have only begun to scratch the surface of scribd.com and I think the same is true for many people.

So go on, check it out! I promise you’ll find something you like. Besides, books are the next best thing to yarn!
