Click, Click, Click... voila!

I keep discovering exactly how cool Ravelry is! I was looking for a DK weight sock pattern, and went to their pattern section, clicked 'DK/sport' and 'Sock' and up pops....

122 patterns in under 3 seconds!

Absolutely amazing!! then I clicked on either 5 stars or 4 stars for the highest rated patterns, and it dropped down to 64 patterns, all with pictures.

Oh, I can see this is going to be trouble... as in... I'm supposed to be finishing my final in 13 days (!!) and I've been playing in Ravelry the last hour.

Although really, I like the Ampersand pattern so much I am wondering if DK weight would work in place of Socks that Rock Mediumweight. Maybe I'll just go do a search on the yarn I am thinking of using, and see what other ravelers did with it....

Addiction. Pure addiction.

I tried Ravelry, and all I got was a front page that said the site isn't ready yet. Wah. I've been reading rave reviews and all I get is "...we're not ready yet..." Double wah.

Did you ask for an invite on their main page? They are still sending out invites from May, I think they said something about having a waiting list of nearly 10,000.

I put my name on the waiting list. That's as far as I can go on the main page. Wah, again.
