Where Is Everyone?
I've noticed that the amount of traffic to this website has fallen off a lot. Where can everyone be? Don't they know that there isn't a better knitting website online? Or have they bored with knitting and gone on to something else? I love it myself, even if I don't manage to make a lot of finished items.

BTW, what has happened to Ingrid? I hope she is OK. She use to post quite often, but I rarely she her post anymore.

It is slower. Part of it is Ravelry. I prefer the small friendly environment of KH better, but some people don't. It's also summer so it always drops when people are on vacation or busy with kids, gardens, etc.

I'm not sure what happened to Ingrid. I hope she's okay, too. :hug:

I prefer the interaction here to Ravelry as well. I just think it's summer, vacations, etc, as Jan said. I lurk, even when I'm not responding, I'm still reading.

As the who's down in whoville said, "we are here, we are here, we are here!" LOL!

I'm fairly new here, and am on Ravelry as well as a knit and crochet group on Cafe Mom. It is fun to be in the smaller groups as you can get to know people better. I have my "routine"....I check emails, check facebook, and then go to my 3 knitting, Ravelry, and knit and crochet Moms (on cafe Mom). Guess I'm just a knitting knerd, huh? Oh!! That could make a cool t-shirt! Heh heh!!:p

I'm still around though not as often with it being summer and the kiddos being home...Will probably be around a bit more once the kids go back to school!

Me, three. I check this site pretty much every day but don't comment either. Part of the reason for that is that it's probably been 4 or 5 months since I've been knitting. :(

I'm here too - not as much this summer though. I don' t know why this summer seems so much busier then usual for me. I thought once the kids got older summer's slowed down. Doesn't seem to be so. DD came home from college early May and life has been crazy!! I have done the least amount of knitting in the last couple of months than I think I ever have. DH developed an issue with his heart (irregular heartbeat) early March and he's home more often too. DH and DD seem to tag team each other as far as one of them being home all the time. Love them both but am really in DT's for some "me" time.

I have managed to finish three bibs, a set of dishcloths and a couple of iPod socks this summer. Will post pics as soon as I get a chance. :)

I lurk a lot too. I have to say that I miss the OT thread. It's a bit tough to slog through the General Knitting area sometimes. I understand the reason for the switch, but I still miss OT.
