My Invite Came

I got my Ravelry invitation late Thursday night. I was clicking that waiting list checker all day long and it didn't budge from 63 people are ahead of you : ( I was so disappointed. And then I checked one last time before I headed off to bed and it said the invitation had been sent and they would send it again. Sure enough, there it was in my junk folder ( gasp). So of course I had to check it out. Two hours later I was bleary eyed and almost too tired to walk up the stairs to bed. After assuring myself it would still be there in the morning, I tore myself away from all the eye candy the site was offering and went to bed. Wow! that is all I have to say about Ravelry. Someone has put a tremendous amount of time and effort into this, and it is wonderful. It is going to be so time consuming for a while. Why didn't I start organizing and photographing this past month as I was waiting for the invite??? Live and learn, I guess. I am MonicaJ on Ravelry. That was my fourth or fifth choice, so I just went with it. My son the computer whiz is not as excited about the Ravelry thing as I am though. He is afraid he will never get to use my computer for his gaming again : )

Contest Alert : Cass of Shut Up I'm Counting is celebrating her 333 post. Some of you may remember the 222 post celebration she had not too long ago. Tell her about 3 of your favorite knitterly things and be put in the drawing for a prize. I was singing raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens all day, thinking about my favorite things : )

Don't forget to turn your clocks back. I have to work tonight ugh!!! an extra hour of work while everyone else in my family is getting an extra hour of sleep .
Have a great weekend!!

Son's worried that since the invitation to Ravelry arrived, he won't be able to use your computer to game again?

Let me reassure him.

He won't. ;-)

You will be sucked in and never heard from again for awhile over there at Ravelry. Blink and 3 hours will have past.

Turning clock's back and forward, always confuses the begeebes out of me. I totally agree with everyone Ravelry takes up many hours.

For the love of all that is pure and sacred and true? Why can't I get onto Ravelry. There are like a gazillion people ahead of me! Maybe the bouncer recognizes me... *sigh* I think people are skipping ahead of me, or holding places in line for their friends. Or something. I really do.

Anyway, nice blog! You DO knit a lot! And nice stuff, too... :)
