Thanks to the new Ravelry list checker I have discovered some Very Important Facts.
1. I DID sign up. I was beginning to wonder
2. The bad news is that I'm still 2,340 people away from being invited
3. The good news is that I'm not any further back! There are 9,348 people behind me in the queue!
I'll confess I'm not too sure about Ravelry. While I think it's a very exciting idea and I'm sure I'll get drawn in, at least at first, I'm not sure it's a good idea to have anything else to keep me welded to the computer in my free time as well as my work time.
I'm worried it will reduce my knitting time even more than my two blogs, emails, ebays, etc do already. My Ravelry space will consist of an ever-lengthening list of stash and items I want to make, and very few FOs!
Life may be too short for housework, but it sure as hell should include time for socialising, reading, country walks, films, trips to the beach (erm, hopefully we'll make it some time this 'summer') and other things that don't involve computers!
Like I said, I'm not too sure what use I'll make of Ravelry. On the other hand, that's exactly what I said about my ipod.....
PS Apparently some people are getting a bit upset about the fact that they haven't had an invite yet. All I can say is: get a life!
