I'm sorry if you are sick of seeing the posts, but I just had to share that I'm super excited to get my Ravelry invite this morning!!:happydance: Its so cool, but there is so much to browse. I still have to make a Flickr account but its banned here at work and I don't have a computer at home until I move on Sept. 1 so I guess I'll have to wait for pictures.

Any good groups that you all suggest??

There's so much I just don't know where to begin. My only problem is that some of the pictures of projects/yarns don't come up, I get a blank box with an x. Anyone know if there is some setting I need to change on my computer for the pictures to download?

BTW, my username is Kaydee (same as here) in case anyone is interested!

I'm jealous. I joined the bandwagon WAY too late and only have just over 14900 invites in front of me.... I'll NEVER get to play on Ravelry. :waah:

Well, there's the knitting help group, of course, but I see you joined that already. ;)
Honestly there are sooooo many groups. There is a search feature for the groups, so you can search for anything that interests you really. It's pretty cool.

I just joined the KH group and Silver's sock group!

orcostknitter- looks like you'll be in tomorrow! Yea!

Elowein- I had about 400 last week and it flew by, I was surprised to see I only had 86 left this morning and the the next thing I knew I got my email.

Yay! It is such a fun place! I am in 19 groups! I just go through the group pages and see what I like. There is New England Fibah-heads which you could join. Not sure why you wouldn't be able to see pics?? Have fun!

I think I figured it out. I think because Flickr is blocked here at work, the pictures on Ravelry that are from Flickr won't show up (I have the same problem with You Tube videos here, they don't show up because its blocked). I guess I won't be able to see the pictures until I get settled with my move and get the internet up and running at home.:shrug:

Ravelry is so much fun! One note for people signed up, though: make sure you check your "junk mail" folders. My invite was there for a few days.

Hope to see you all there soon! (I'm psammeadred there too, by the way.)

I got my invite a month ago but have not yet had the opportunity to put my stuff on it...bedrest and feeling really yucky and then knitting for my pal, etc....I actually hope to begin with it next week. I've been told a few of my patterns have been seen on there!
I was on there long enough to find out I have to reload & reduce my photos on flickr cause I couldn't get the entire photo in the space allotted. LOL, I so wish they had used PHotobucket, I have a pro acct! LOL, I know I'll end up with one on flikr, too now...but that's okay!
