Joining Ravelry

I just got an invitation to join Ravelry, so I zipped over and did so. Oh, my, there's going to be a lot of keying in information about yarn and projects and patterns. I think I could spend a lot of time there.

Now that I've seen it, I can see why they didn't want to just throw it open to the world all at once. The various databases will benefit, I think, by being built gradually. Even that's not perfect, as I've seen a couple of errors that need correcting.

Anyway, if you've signed up to join, they're clearing the list. However, that list has 4,500 people on it, so it may take them a while.

Did you manage to hit the road? Your packing list made me laugh - so much yarn and so many books! You know what's important! I hope you left room for you and your husband in the minivan, not to mention the possible puppy who will be almost a dog by the time you return.

Looking forward to seeing your projects on Ravelry!

I was hoping no one would notice if I didn't mention it. No, we didn't hit the road. I never did get rid of my migraine yesterday and it was still hot (102°, not 109° like the day before).

So I canceled my appointment with the lawyer tomorrow, consulted the weather, remembered I had to get the GFCI removed from the circuit the freezer is on, tried a little haruspicy (not really, but it sounds good), and decided to leave Thursday.

I think we'll actually manage that.

LOL You're supposed to shear the sheep, not slaughter them!

Roosters, black roosters. The ancients were fussy about their divination methods. It probably sounded a lot like the Mac-PC battles of today, with about the same result.

Sheep are safe around me, as I don't like lamb or mutton. Although I do love my sheepskin rugs.
