It has a lot of great organizational tools (on-line) for knitters and is a social networking site.

This thread (http://knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/showthread.php?t=63204) talks about some of the benifits.

Here is the website for Raverly (https://www.ravelry.com/account/login) - there are screen shots and tours that will help you learn more about it.

I'm sure if you do a search for Raverly here on KH you'll find a wealth of information.

Rubbing salt in the wound is right. How evil of you! :twisted:

I was going to sign up and then brain-farted several days. When I finally logged on, I was behind a billion people in line. Sadly, there are still fewer people in line behind me than in front of me. I'll NEVER get on! :waah:

is there going to be a limit to how many people they are going to let in?

No. They're still in beta and don't even have the servers set up yet. They can't handle the number of people that want to get in yet.
So, they created the waiting list and every day they tell the computer a number and that number gets invites.

On the news blog, they posted that about a week after they get the servers set up, they're going to invite a bulk of 5000. After that, they'll see how it goes. At which point they may invite another bulk, or they'll be out of beta and open to the public.

They've only been working on this for 4 months, and only 1 (or so) both of them full time. It's just a knitter and a programmer.

It's something programmers do, where they open it up to a limited number of users to test it out--get the kinks and the bugs out of the code, so that when it is opened to a wider group, they will have identified and fixed as many bugs as possible.

I didn't think I would ever get in either, but now I am. It's an amazing site, so it's worth the wait.

Yes, it is wonderful, I've been spending way too much time there....I've been entering my stash into the data base and my friends are "snickering" at me.

It'll be open to all fairly soon and the nice thing is that all that go before will have entered pretty much all the yarn, books and patterns into the data base making your set up quick and painless.
