Are any of you on Ravelry yet? People seem to be talking about it everywhere and saying it's really neat. I'm not a very experienced knitter (though I've crocheted for years), but I thought, why not? So I put my name on the list a couple of days ago. It's unbelievable how fast people are signing up. Here's what they said when I checked my place in line this morning:

Found you!

* You signed up on October 9, 2007
* You are #41874 on the list.
* 14973 people are ahead of you in line.
* 757 people are behind you in line.
* 60% of the list has been invited so far

Now, it was only the day before yesterday when I signed up and it said there was no one behind me in line. Now two days later there are 757 people behind me in line...and it's not even 8:30 in the morning! I hope it's as cool as people are making it sound!

Speaking of cool, the weather has really cooled off here this week. A week or so ago, we were hot and had the air conditioner on. This morning the temperature was about 45 degrees. Brrrr.

I'd better get busy. I'm listing some handspun bamboo this morning. Here's a picture:

I painted the roving (or "top" I think it was actually called) a pale pink and pale yellow. I think I posted a picture some time ago. Up close, you can see the pink and yellow. At a distance, it looks kind of a peachy color. Hopefully, I'll get it in the shop sometime this morning.

I really wish I could knit or crochet - your colors are soooo beautiful!

Thank you! You need to give it a try. I'm sure that knitting or crocheting would be a breeze for anyone who can make such pretty jewelry! :)

I've heard of Ravelry, but the insane queue has kept me from signing up. I'll probably get around to it at some point though.

Yummy-looking yarn!

Thanks! I don't know why it wouldn't let you sign up. I think all I had to do was enter my email address and it put me on the list. With computers, though, who knows? :) By the way, now there are 3,185 people behind me in line!!
