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.

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 knooks.....here, 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!!

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!

For me it's been more work and the party planning, which should now taper off until September or so for me. I knit quite a bit during the summer for the cold months and for Christmas. It's quite a productive time for me as I refuse to cook in this heat.

Plus, many folks go on vacation during the summer months and everything tends to slow down everywhere, as I've noticed.

I'm here, I'm on here at least once a day reading. I much prefer KH to Ravelry, I find their boards hard to follow because there are so many people on them. I can generally be found in the Sock KAL.

i've been dealing with fall out. I was in a car accident last february and am still dealing with the medical stuff on top of my last 2 kids here at home (ages 12 and 10) being out of school for the summer. I've been knitting some, http://www.knittingphoenix.blogspot.com but most days I spend dealing with back pain and trying to not overdo things....

I'm also guilty of lurking regularly, but hardly posting.

Ever since I bought my Options and have all those extra cables, I have more UFOs than ever before so I spend more time knitting than online. I'm new to ravelry too, and find it so overwhelming I spend more time looking around there than I do on here.
