Still catching up

While I was in Vermont, I got my invitation to Ravelry (about two months after I’d signed up for one). I was worried that the invitation might “time out” if it didn’t get a response within a certain amount of time, so I endured the slowness of my cottage’s dial-up connection and registered an account (FirstThingsFirst) there.

And that’s all I’ve done. Unlike pretty much everyone else who’s gotten into Ravelry, I haven’t uploaded pictures of my stash or my finished projects or anything. Heck, except for just a few minutes ago–when I checked to make sure I actually had an account there–I hadn’t even looked at Ravelry since I was in Vermont. Eventually I will update everything, but, well, I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. Does this make me a Ravelry ingrate?

    A Ravelry ingrate? Not at all. Once it’s out of beta, the hubbub will die down. I think the best part of Ravelry is looking at *other* people’s stuff anyway, although I also enjoy being able to look at (some of) my stash during the day while I’m at work.

    I am far back in line for Ravelry. It will be ages before I get in.
    I have heard wonderful things about it tho.

    I feel terrible because I got an invite long ago (earlier than most other folks I know). I did put some info up right away, but I haven’t knit at all this summer, what with the move and all.

    I’m the original Ravelry slacker.

    I’m think it is so cool that you made it in and I know you will catch up soon! Ingrate? No.

    No, you’re no ingrate! I haven’t done that much with it yet either. The thought of trying to photograph all my stash and put it up practically makes me hyperventilate.

    So, what’s your Ravelry ID? I’m PixieM

    I’ve heard only good things, but will be especially looking forward to hearing your review of Ravelry once you’ve had time (and inclination) to let loose in there! Take your time, and have fun!

    My Ravelry ID is FirstThingsFirst. I still haven’t managed to add anything to my account (haven’t even looked at the tutorials or anything, either), but I hope to get to that soon. At the very least, I’d like to post my finished objects, because, well, they’re actually finished, and I think that’s worth a little cheer, right? :)
