So, after what feels like FOREVER, my Ravelry invite has arrived! (I've been anxiously checking the "antsy" page for weeks....I'm quite impatient!) :cheering: :cheering:

I'm Matdredalia on Ravelry, and I'd love some friends *hint hint*.:woot:

I told the hubbies that it was finally here, and both of them said, in unison "Thank God."

One even added "Now you'll stop whining about it." :roflhard:

*blush* So, yes, yaye Ravelry!

(^-^) Added you as well!

And as for the "hubbies"....we're polyamorous, and well, I have two. I can't marry them both legally, of course, but in our hearts *shrugs* we're married. :heart:

And um, *scratches head* What does EMWTK mean? :)

Thanks for all the +friends on Ravelry, guys! Keep 'em coming! (^_^)

Click here to check it out. It's a new website that is in a beta version and not open to the public just yet. The couple thousand people they wanted for testing has expanded to billions (okay, a LOT). You have to sign up, and they add new folks every day. I think they're doing about 700/day, last I heard. It took me about a month to get in.

There are screen shots and such on the site to give you an idea what it's all about. You can organize your yarn and your projects, join groups, search for patterns, participate on a forum, etc.

Looks like the link didn't go so well :(

Gaorii - http://ravelry.com should give you a good idea of what's up :)

*chuckles* They're a handfull, but it's worth it. (Kind of like having kids, I guess? XD)

It's definitely not for everyone, though! (^-^) I'd never tell anyone else "HEY! YOU HAVE TO TRY THIS!" lol

That is awesome. Wish I could talk mine into letting me have another one, but I'm pretty sure he wouldn't go for it. :roflhard:

Totally Underwhelmed by Ravelry. Sad to say......

Mazie, I was for the first couple weeks too. But once I figured out I can search for a specific yarn and see all the things made with it, or search a specific pattern and check out how it looks in all kinds of different yarns, I was totally sold on it. BTW, my username is SabrinaJL.

You sure are braver than I am :notworthy: ...one was more than enough for me to handle and after a while I surrendered that job. BTW, I'll add you as a friend on Ravelry. Good luck to y'all!

Ok, I officially have Ravelry envy. I just checked and there are 8166 people in line ahead of me. *sigh* Maybe it will be my Christmas present to me. ;)
