I'm a Raveler
Yes, finally, #24,153 got invited into the party.
A Wonderful New World
I am majorly impressed with all the work that's been put into this site, and how extensive the participation has been of the folks already signed up.
Personally, I was invited in on Friday, and I have already set up all my current projects, and some of my older projects. I've added a few items in my stash. I've added all my knitting books (that Ravelry has in their database). I've signed into three groups and have about a dozen friends so far.
If you're already a member, feel free to add me as a friend (I'll do the same), send a message, add any of my projects as favorites, etc., etc.
Finally, Marilyn mentioned this, but if you are a member, and you like the new fiberspace, and you have the means to do so, I would highly recommned that you support the developers by either buying a t-shirt or two, or making a direct contribution. I understand they'll be allowing members to join for free, and eventually, they will probably have advertising that will pay for their work, but as of now, it's simply a tremendous effort.
I worked diligently on the crochet lace tablecloth this weekend, and got some decent results.
Not only did I complete 9 of the smaller filler-motif stars, but I also added three more larger stars. At this pace, I may actually have a tablecloth that could be used for Thanksgiving.
Angel asks if I've every used the Clover Soft Touch Crochet Hooks?
Knit store worker and all-around great guy, Steve, showed me one of the Clover Soft Touch Crochet Hooks at Twist, and it looked kind of intriguing, but it didn't seem any longer than the regular hooks, and seemed like it would still poke me in the palm of my hand. But I may try one anyway to see how I like it.
