:woot: I went ahead and signed up. Boy, that site can be overwhelming and intimidating to both a newbie knitter and a newbie on the site. I'll have to spend more time on the site when I get a chance.

About how long does it take to get your invitation? I put mine in a couple of days ago, and wouldn't you know it, I forgot which email address I used. I've been skimming my Yahoo bulk mail for days, terrified I'll miss out on it. I've heard a lot about this site from a lot of people. How long has it been around, and have they announced when it will no longer be in beta? (Maybe they're trying to give Gmail a run for its money - still in beta there!)

I got my invite to Ravelry tonight too...there's a LOT over there.

I think the best part will be seeing how to use up my stash from the projects listed on there - that's what I want to use it for.

If you'd like a friend over there, feel free to add me: Knittn4Fun.

Hugs! :hug:

They've been around about a year now and no they have no plans of leaving beta anytime soon. Welcome aboard ya'll. Feel free to add me if you want. The little box in my sig links to my page :)

I could no longer resist the temptation and signed up about a week ago. Still no invite and I find myself growing anxious! LOL

I got invited last week, after about a weeks wait, so it won't be long for some of you that signed up recently.

They add between 500 and 800 a day, and with the numbers now, figure about a 10 day wait.

I've been there a while, usually perusing patterns & reading info more than posting. I'm using my initials over there--MZF-- as my regular screen name, Agnes, was already taken. Feel free to add me to your friends list, if you like.

I too have been there for a bit. I love that you can look at your friends "activity" and see what they have finished, added to qeue , etc. Just click on your friends list, and then at the top it says "friends activity". very nice. I have been mussing around with my stash and other people's projects that have used the yarn I have, I love that function too. Just add a yarn to your stash and see the "projects" part. I LOVE THAT!
Welcome to ravelry, you will notice that the boards are nowhere near as awesome as the KH one is!:yay:

1204 in front of me. The suspense is killing me. It's like waiting for Santa Claus to come. I wonder if I'm just so excited because of having to wait for an invite. Hopefully it will be as cool as I'm hoping.

This may be a dumb question, but, how do you know how many people are before you??

Heh, NM...Once I really paid attention, I saw it :p I have 781 people ahead of me. It's been 9 days, so, I'm hoping any day now!

Here's the front page. Click the link that says "Add your name to the List."

If I recall correctly, once you add yourself to the list, when you go back and put in your email address again, it will tell you how many people are in front of you.

Got my invite today, and I requested on 1/7/08, I think, so the wait isn't all that bad now. I signed up, logged in and plugged in two of the four projects I have OTN (two are just sitting around doing not much right now...). Need to get some photos of my FO and such.

And be sure to check out the forums/groups - there's a lot of special interest stuff on Ravelry - I found at least a couple of groups for Tennessee knitters, and also 2 groups for those of us who can't (or won't) knit with sheep fibers! Woo hoo!

Yeah, it seems like the wait is about 10 days or so. After you've signed up, you click on Waiting List checker just above the login and put in the email address that you used.

i finally found the time to digg through my old e mails the other night and started looking through. only over 150 patterns i have found taht i want to make. only trouble is i have to have another baby to make some lol. nudging new partner hehe.

I got my invite today! Took 11 days, not so bad. My handle is erikalee . Where do you get the little Ravelry linky box that so many of you have on your sigs here?

I found 2 more LYS in my area listed there so that it was worth it for just that! :happydance:

I'm going to post my FOs, WIPs and such later today. So excited!

:woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:
