Seriously. People be blogging about it, and I be waiting. Painfully waiting.
Are you a knitter? Have you heard about Ravelry?
Ravelry is a place for knitters, crocheters, designers, spinners, and dyers to keep track of their yarn, tools and pattern information, and look to others for ideas and inspiration.
The content here is all user- driven; we as a community make the site what it is. The Yarn Harlot wrote recently about Representing, showing the world the power of our community, and I believe that on this site we can really show the strength of our numbers and the depth of our creativity.
So what can you personally do on Ravelry? You can talk about your own projects, integrate that information into your personal website and contribute to someone else's project a world away.
If you are not a blogger, we give you a great way to share and show off your projects, participate in -alongs, and socialize with other crafters. If you are a blogger than Ravelry is the perfect complement to your online journal; it provides structure and organization. All of your information is easy to enter and easy to find. You will not need to update your own FO album again- it is all here on Ravelry!
But. It's still in beta, and you have to sign up and get into the queue. And then with the waiting.
At least you can look up where you are in line:
- You signed up on July 19, 2007
- You are #18881 on the list.
- 8948 people are ahead of you in line.
- 8808 people are behind you in line.
- 35% of the list has been invited so far
But hey, blogger peeps, just keep on posting about how awesome it is. WE DON'T MIND.
