Just 886 people ahead of me...Why am I so excited about this? I don't have a huge stash to inventory, nor pictures of all my FO's to catalog but despite that I'm really looking forward to gaining access to this site. Am i setting myself up for a huge let-down?

I'm just trying to get the hang of the whole thing. It's awful slow, of course, since I live int he MIDDLE OF NOWHERE (i.e. stuck on dial-up). Oh well. It's kind-a fun though. I guess being something of a MWK and facebook junkie, I'm not certain how much I'll get "into" ravelry. We'll see.

Grace and peace,

unfortunately patience is not one of the virtues I am blessed with.

I'll just have to distract myself with more knitting!

Please remember: I have a collection of needles and a history of violence

I have 19,723 people in front of me. According to Kyle's manner of guesstimating, I may get in around the end of next February. I'm not going to think about that now.

from what I can see (on the inside) I don't think it'll be THAT long before the site is totally up and open to everyone instantly... another month or two - they got their servers, etc. and they're getting it all ready - when it's a "go" they'll slowly open the floodgates for everyone.... it's definately worth the wait, and if anyone hasn't signed up, please do sign up - at www.ravelry.com to at least get in line :)

What is Ravelry?

What is Ravelry?

What's Ravelry? heheh...

What's Ravelry? heheh... check out http://www.ravelry.com for screenshots and such. It's still not open to the public yet but they currently have a waiting list. Be careful tho. Apparently once you get in you can get pretty hooked on the place.

Basically it's a knitting site where you can organize your projects, needles, patterns, yarn, show off your projects, see other people's things, participate in groups... it's actually pretty cool. I find myself hopping on there once or twice a day to look for something or other.

gaynnyc, I don't think you're setting yourself up for a big letdown at all. It's pretty innovative.

you're excited because once

you're excited because once Ravelry is part of your life, you'll wonder what it was like to not have ravelry around... it's amazing - it's great at organizing your projects and keeping track of everything knitting related you wanna know! I'd guess you'll be in by this time next week! :)
