Attention Foron Knitters!

If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it fits here

Attention Foron Knitters!

Have y'all signed up for Ravelry yet?
http://www.ravelry.com
If not, sign up - it's phenomenal. You can organize your stash, your WIPs (and UFOs!), books, needles, all that. And, there's KALs and groups, oh my!

It is nice to know that there are people out there who have more yarn than me - this is also comforting for my mate, in a strange it-could-be-worse kind of way.

(I've always known they existed, I just had yet to meet them.)

Cool!
Another post from The Ravelian UFO cult!
So: you guys must use space needles?

Given that my knitting experience involves just as much blogging and online junk as actual knitting (hey, I can't exactly knit inconspicuously at work), I'm so there.

I'm listed as Madam.

That's going to be quite a site! When is it suppose to be up and running?

Well, the site's still in beta right now, but the creators have quit their jobs to work full time on the site.
As of a couple of days ago, there were 9,802 people on the waiting list. (there are over 4,000 already on the site "beta" testing.) I would think they should be ready to go live soon, though. I think they may just be trying to get through some of the backlog of the queue, so those 10,000 don't all try to get in at once. They let a couple of hundred in every day.

I'm on the waiting list.
I've been working on the same three projects since last fall. Sad, isn't it?

In your defense, Amy, your other new project is probably more important ;)

You're right, of course. I haven't even touched my knitting bag since I was in labor.
I've been meaning to post photos, but something else always seems to be more important. Like posting on internet forums... :wink:
