Reveling in Ravelry!!!

I am so intrigued by Ravelry! I received my invitation last week, and I have not been the same since. It is quite a knitting community experience. I was so involved in the possibilities of the cyberknitterdom that I could not get to sleep last night for thinking about the innumerable possibilities it provides.

Not only are you able to learn who is knitting what you're knitting, but also just by a click of the mouse you can learn what other interpretations of the pattern are out there in the cyberknitpool.If you haven't received your invitation don't despair or feel left out. As Casey from Unraveled says:

"Also, I’d like to explain the waiting list again because there is still confusion. The list goes in order - we don’t prefer some people over others. We choose how many invites to send out and a computer program sends that many from the top of the list. We have the list because everyone wants to get in even though the site isn’t ready! A new version of Ravelry goes out almost every night and we are still very much in beta. We’re adding new people as fast as we can."

Getting set up in Ravelry will take some work, but there are huge benefits the least of which is organizing your projects and finishing them. My problem is that my must do projects list is growing!!! Keep up the good work, Jess and Casey..............

Ravelry is the best idea ever! I love how you can look up a pattern that interests you and see everyone's different yarn and color choices, pattern modifications, etc. It's kind of like a wiki in that respect... a huge repository of everyone's experience, good and bad. That's a very powerful tool to have!

I also am awaiting my invitation to the community. Knitting is a great community and I think ravelry will just make it stronger, don't you?
