21 people from Ravelry invite

Found you!
  • You signed up on June 25, 2007

  • You are #10970 on the list.

  • 21 people are ahead of you in line.

  • 19095 people are behind you in line.

  • 36% of the list has been invited so far

By the time you read this I will probably have finally received my long awaited Ravelry invite and will have made it into the inner-sanctum.

I have no idea what it is all about, how it is supposed to work and the little cynical inner core of me is wandering "Is this some kind of virtual cult for knitters?" and "How can anything live up to this level of hype?"

There is nothing in Wikipedia yet which is a bit disconcerting, however I found an intriguing description on Talullah's blog.

I think Ravelry is meant to be a kind of MySpace for knitters, but as I don't know how MySpace works, that isn't very helpful. I really will try and do my best to explain what Ravelry is, once I'm in there. Providing I haven't been taken over by a Stepford-style cyberbot that is only capable of saying "Ravelry is the coolest best thing ever for knitters and you are so out of things if you are not in there".

My husband has assured me that if I am sucked into some kind of knitters' cult he will send his troops from World of Warcraft (which of course is not an addictive cyber-cult) in to rescue me.
