So I gave in...

I said I wouldn't, but I did...

I signed up got on the mungo huge waiting list for
Ravelry just now...

Found you!
You signed up on Today
You are #19564 on the list.
13031 people are ahead of you in line.
1 people are behind you in line.
32% of the list has been invited so far


Thirteen thousand people are in front of me in line! Holy smokes batman... and 1 lone person behind me (I'm sure that'll change in about 2 seconds)! This blog will remain my #1 focus though... but it appears many folks can and do blog and use Ravelry... go figure! Just please, please, please don't make me catalog my entire stash... that could take days weeks ... yikes!


And no, I didn't sign up just because I found this on the creator's (who I am so sad that I missed meeting at TKGA show..) blog: This blog is where I write about my little life in Charlestown, Massachussetts with my my sweet husband, Casey, and my Boston Terrier, Bob. If you don’t like pictures of dogs, this may not be the place for you. I can’t seem to stop myself. I don't think I could've said it better myself (the part about the dog pictures, of course)!

To save time, I have finally come to realize what a wonderful, wonderful world Bloglines is (you can click on the button under my profile on the right to instantly subscribe to this blog without having to type in the URL)! I had checked it out before, but was too stubborn to realize how great it was. Yes, I was one of those who randomly clicked on all my favorite blogs a few hundred times a day to see if my knitting pals had updated them... time consuming? Yes! Now with bloglines, I just have to look there and it'll tell me who's got new or updated posts... cool! It does seem to take at least a few hours, sometimes a day before the posts pop up as new for some reason... but its still a huge time saver and a way to never miss a friend's post again!

No one can resist the lure of Ravelry! I've got about 650 people ahead of me, and hope to get my invitation sometime this week. (I signed up on June 5th).

Ravelry is great. At first I was hesitant because of how time consuming it is, but I like to use it for the forums. You can get a lot of good information and connect with other knitters.

I think I am one of the few who hasn't and still won't sign up for Ravelry.

Hello Fellow DRT member. I just got my invite to join Ravelry last week. Only took six weeks. Felt like forever. Still learning my way around it though. Can't wait to see you there.

Oh Ravelry, Ravelry... will you send me my invite before the year is over?

Scary phenomenon that place is turning ou to be, eh?
