I could very easily be addicted to Ravelry. Kristi sent me an invite and I didn't do much with it at first. I started to add my stash after hearing Jenny and Nicole rave about it on Stash and Burn. Adding stash lead to adding projects. Then I heard Brenda Dayne rave about it on Cast On so I added her as a friend and she added me back! Be still my heart!

In any case, I can see myself getting really into Ravelry. I've added all of my All Seasons Cotton and a few of my projects, including my current works in progress. I have this urge to get out my entire stash and photograph it ball by ball to catalog it all. That is either really unhealthy obsessive behavior, or a good way to keep better tabs on what I have. I really should do that with needles. I feel like I'm constantly losing track of needles and then buying something similar, only to discover the old one. I shoudl probably start with the needle card instead of photographing yarn.

    Hi! I've been waiting to get in to Ravelry for ages. Do you happen to have any invites? I'd really love one – please! 🙂

    OMG, what a fantastic idea! I took one look at the site, and had to look away before I committed my whole day to it. If it's in beta testing right now, then I'm glad, since it gives me a reason to wait. This is the perfect thing for a left brain/right brain person like me, who needs order in my creative pursuits.

    I just joined so I don't have invites, I'm not even sure how to get them. If I have them later, I'll invite you, though!

    I've been waiting patiently for Ravelry to open or send me my invite. 🙂

    Eeep! Thank you for posting this! I eagerly anticipate them adding more folks! That site looks like a major time vacuum 😀

    I understand – thank you for keeping me in mind. I'll "try" to keep being patient 🙂

    I'd love to get an invite as well, if anyone has one 🙂

    It sounds like maybe they aren't giving out invites to users anymore, now that the waiting list is so long? I'll certainly offer my invites to people if I get any.

    Read the other day… no more invites, but if you're on their list, they are adding chunks of folks (in order received) every day or so… so hopefully not too long of wait!
