This is Mary Beth Klatt, filling in for Steve Delahoyde just for today. Posting here is a good thing because there’s lots going in the world, especially in the universe we call Knitting. The buzz is all about Ravelry, an online knit and crochet community. It’s still in beta mode, but it’s getting rave reviews among crafsters who stash yarn, needles and more. It’s so popular that there’s already a huge line to get an account. We’re talking thousands. Last time this scribe checked, 15,911 knitters and crocheters were ahead of her, a lengthy queue that just might stretch to Mars and back and then some. Until this journalist receives her invite in the latter part of 2008 (that’s just a guess), she’s going to do her best to keep visiting relevant blogs like Knit and Tonic and Knitdaily, and of course, stitch up some sweaters to keep the fingers off the keyboard. You know what’s Stephanie Pearl-McPhee would do, but she’s already logged into Ravelry. Sigh.
