I am going to be adding things over the next few days, but I am so excited! I have heard such good things!

I can't wait to keep playing with it.

I have to remind myself: must study for three day test instead of playing with ravelry!

My first thought after adding some info about my first project is that this is very cool, I love the ease of adding projects and the fact that the tempting popped up right away with tempting I and II for the pattern, it's very slick so far.

Ravelry.com is a new resource for knitters. It's like a big community, you have a homepage where you enter all the details of your projects and it links you to all the other people who have knit/are knitting that pattern or using that yarn, etc. You can see pictures of ones other people have knit, get their opinions on the yarn that they have already entered, and bookmark people you know or whose knitting you find interesting to see what they are knitting. It's sort of like having everyone's blog in one place.

I should be updating my page later today.

Delurking to say that I've heard crocheters are welcome too. :lol:

('Cause that's what I am. Ooops...did I just say that out loud?!)

I signed up for an invite to see what all the fuss is all about but have settled in for a nice long wait, as I think my name is 14,786 on the list (so to speak).

How does one sign up?

Here's the website for Ravelry.com (https://www.ravelry.com/account/login) . You scroll down a little on the right hand side and it says you can add your name to the list.
I signed up just a couple days ago, so it'll probably be a long wait for me. :hug:

BostonBecca
06-08-2007, 11:59 AM
I think I signed up over a month ago at least. Just to give you an idea. This was right before the buzz really began on blogs, knitting websites, etc, as in the day before I really started seeing a lot about it.

I finally received my Ravelry invite! I must've signed up for beta over a month ago. I've been uploading projects for most of the day but I have many more left. I think I'll take a break for now.

There are so many helpful functions. Hopefully more of you will be able to have the opportunity to check it out.

Haven't visited their forums yet. I don't want to be tempted to leave KH! :shock: hehehehe.

Here's my project page: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/simplethings

I'm not sure if you need to be a member to view it. If anyone else here has Ravelry, add me as a friend! :hug:




PS: Sorry the post seems so... fragmented. It's getting late and I've been typing, and researching knitting all day. :zombie:

The couple who work on it have quit their day jobs to work on Ravelry. They are working on it full time now, and that's why more people are getting invites.

For their sakes, I really hope it does well!

There's been tons of talk about it, but I think I will just wait until it's out of testing and generally open to the public.

I got mine last weekend and I suppose I haven't had time to really look at it yet, but so far I am not in love. I am absolutely NOT a fan of Flickr so that bugs me a little bit and am finding it a little tedious to navigate around to find what I really want. Like I said though, it is very likely that I just haven't had enough time to get in there and really look around. Will definitely need to play with it more sometime.

Wow, I can't wait to get mine! I can't remember when I signed up...I'm sure it was in May, but who knows when! I have heard that at least one of my patterns is already on it though, I'm quite honored!!!

Sorry to hear that you are finding it tedious to navigate! It's supposed to be fun. As for Photobucket, Photobucket users have been a small but vocal minority on our site (so far) and we'll be supporting other photo options when we open. I wrote a little more about this in the Flickr vs Photobucket thread (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/showthread.php?t=58598http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/showthread.php?t=58598).

My name there is also Mulene :)

Rebecca, like you, several of my patterns proceeded me to Ravelry :mrgreen:

I think it's the best flippin' thing since sliced bread....seriously, I'm gobsmacked. It incorporates so many things that people have been vocally wishing for for ages. Especially as far as pattern and yarn information are concerned...the potential is absolutely amazing. Casey and Jessica really did their homework. :thumbsup:

I liken it to when KnitPicks came out with Options...for years people were saying "if only there was an interchangeable set like Addis" and they went and did it...and kudos to them for making a great business decision. In the same way, people have been saying things like "if only there were a database where I could search for patterns by yarn/gauge/whatever" and now, there is. I also find it so helpful to be able to search for others' projects when I'm considering starting a project, to see what their experiences and results were like. I've always done that in the past, using google searches, but this is sooooo much more streamlined and helpful.

Are you guys going back and adding all projects? I had to start a flickr account so thinking I'll just stick with May/June projects and go from there :teehee:..

Hi Becca! How does one add you as a friend...after receiving the Ravelry invitation? All I say was the sign-up thing, and all it had was an email address to fill out, and/or a blog site.

I signed up just now , but what do you put for Blog? I left it blank cuz I didn't know??

By the way you must have to already be a member to click on anything.

Thanks so much for sharing . I love this site here but it's nice to have more than just one site to visit.Sparkspeople.com has a knitting team on it that I joined.

Nana,

Hi Lady Violet! :waving:

Congrats! :thumbsup:

At this point it isn't really about when you signed up, it is about how many people there are signed up.

This is from their site and it as of July 7th:

Number of people in Ravelry: 4054
Number of unclaimed invites: 791
Number of people on the waiting list: 9802I believe they said by the end of this week, they should be up to those who signed up on 5/28. But the Yarn Harlot blogged about it and they got a TON more applications!!!

Keep in mind that they are still in the beta stage right now and that is why they aren't opening the floodgates. They are making changes everyday to get it ready for the masses of people so it doesn't crash!

This (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/This) is a blog they set up, if you want to check it out. They put news and updates there.

No, it's not required.

Really, nothing is. If you just wanted to have an account to look at other people's accounts, there's nothing saying you can't.

But, you'd probably end up taking advantage of some of the features at least. :) :teehee:

07-16-2007, 11:57 AM
Right now, they aren't. I don't know if they will be or not. I know they'll be hooking it up with another photo hosting, but I don't know which one.

And, you'll also be able to link to ones you host on your own, at some point.


I don't really like Flickr and only got one because of Ravelry. But, as soon as I'm able to link to my own (or however they do it) I'm sure I'll be getting rid of my flickr account.

lol no sorry... that is just my own ridiculousness that makes me feel like i have to take pictures. Today a friend spurred me to take pictures for a site he is working on (I will tell you when it actually goes live! ;) ) so i finally did it. i didn't gete close to my whole stash but it was a good first effort considering i was doing this outside and it was 95 degrees out! I don't like flickr either and am looking for something to replace photobucket (*shakes fist at rupert murdoch for buying my photo site!*)... Drop shots was looking good but i don't think i can upload from my phone there... so i continue on. ;) However, for now, flickr is being used for my Ravelry pics. much to the chagrin of the people who are following my flickr account i am sure because there is nothing on there but yarn... :teehee:

I got my invite yesterday, username knittinghelp! :cheering: So I am an official KH blackops spy infiltrating enemy territory (we need a ninja emoticon like the chat has! Would be perfect here!)

I've only had about 10 minutes of free time to check it out today. It's very impressive what they managed to put together. I am currently learning the programming language Casey used to create Ravelry (Ruby on Rails), so I've been curious what they managed to do with it. We've got some plans of our own for expanding the features of KH's community beyond the forum, so it's nice to see what they are doing and how they are tying it all together.

And if I might add...I checked out their forum and I think KH has them beat on that front. Definitely not as rocking or as fun looking as the KH forum.

yes you will! and there will be even more features and fewer bugs. Those of us who signed up late have got to stay strong and optimistic. We should go knit something to pass the time... or maybe a trip to the LYS to alleviate the pain.

:woot: There is hope! I just got invited to join ravelry today! :woohoo:
I joined the waitlist on June 4th, so maybe a month and a half wait? BTW, two weeks ago I had about 900 in front of me so you can use that as an estimate.

I have no time today to work on my profile but I will try to squeeze some time in. Hmm, I only have about 3 months knitting, so there is not much I can add yet. But I'm sure that will change soon. ;)

I got my invite DAYS ago and it must have been blocked by my email filters!

I just went to check it on ravelry and thankfully they send you a new one, so I fixed it all up and I am in! Yay!

Here's my spot:

You are #7782 on the list.
1115 people are ahead of you in line.
12436 people are behind you in line.
32% of the list has been invited so far
I actually set up a spreadsheet over the weekend to track the amount of people let in, so I can try to estimate when I will be invited.

www.ravelry.com (http://www.ravelry.com)

Its a site where you can do all sorts. You can organise your stash, post your projects and when you finished them etc. Works in progress, needles you own, have groups of knitters for specific things... um lots and lots and lots of things that I can't remember but I know I love it already =D

I think eventually they will be opening the site to everyone and doing away with the invite system. I think they are working on bringing servers online to handle the traffic and should be opening the doors in a few weeks give or take.

Ya know, think about this to console yourself: Those who get in "early on" are the guinea pigs! Those of us who get it next year...will be the beneficiaries of a well-oiled machine!

Look at the folks who stood in line overnight on June 28th...waiting for the new "i-Phone" from ATT. They are the guinea pigs...now finding out that there are battery issues. (you have to mail in your phone for a new battery, and there are no "loners" for you while it is in "the shop")

I did not run out and get the VISTA operating system. It is fraught with bugs and issues!

Maybe...when I have to get a new laptop...but maybe not. May stay with XP until there is no longer any support for it. :pout:

Maybe by then...our Sheldon will have a comparable program for our KH family! I'd hop onto the Sheldon Train before Ravelry! Ya just can't keep up with too many forums and sites...know what I mean? :eyes: It is time consuming. It really cuts into the number of FO's. :knitting: Look at my signature below. Look at all those WIP'S! Sheeeees. One of them is a "summer top" that shoulda been done last month! Well, it may end up being a 2008 Summer Top!

Awww, geeez...:aww: It's nice to know we have a loyal following! We do have plans to expand out into some new areas. It of course takes time and some serious brain power! We don't plan on being a clone of Ravelry, but we are working on enabling real blogs (in addition to the existing blog thread), blogrolls, groups and KAL's, FO show and tells, etc. Alot of folks here have already come up with some great ideas such as the KH member locator map and the KH group on FLickr and we'd like to implement tools like those into the site more and make them accessible to everyone. I don't think we'll bother having a yarn database (since the internet already has a few) or a needle stash/needle organizer/inventory unless you'all really want those features on KH. Anyhow, we're still brainstorming and working on new features. Thankfully the new forum and the chat are all squared away now.

It is worth the wait.

It'll be open soon. Someone, I can't remember who, is having a blog contest where if you donate to knitters without borders or something, or doctors without borders (would make more sense) you are entered into a drawing for one of two ravelry invites she has to give out.

Anyone remember where that is?

You don't need to resize to put them on flickr. And when you are in Ravelry, you see thumbnails of all your photos and can choose from there. No resizing needed on either side.

Hi :waving:

I have had problems with more than a few websites just this same way. Everytime I want to log in...I have to go through the "get new password" routine.

I think it may be that I regularly clean out all cookies...through the daily spyware scans. Some websites "hold" my information...some websites don't.

It is a mystery to me. :eyes: Sheldon have any input???

Sorry I can't be of more help. :pout:
