Ravelry - good or bad?

I signed a while back for my spot on the wait list at Ravelry. Here's my stats today:
  • You are #14523 on the list.
  • 3879 people are ahead of you in line.
  • 15003 people are behind you in line.
  • 35% of the list has been invited so far
There are almost 4000 people ahead of me - discouraging - but there are over 15K behind me. Suckers.

Anyway, I'm a bit worried about this whole Ravelry thing. Everyone who's anyone in the knitting world is talking about it. Those who are already in are acting like they're part of some secret exclusive knitting clique. I hate them. I want to be them. My biggest concern however lies with the day I actually get the invite. This Utopian knitting community is going to be the biggest time suck I have ever encountered. What should I do on that day? Call in sick to work and camp out with a pot of coffee in my PJs in front of the computer? Act cool and pretend I don't really care and put it off until I have free time then sneak looks all day when I should be doing other things? How will I keep it from being a distraction day in and day out? It's a serious quandary. There's a little part of me that doesn't want to get the invite any time soon because I'm afraid of what will happen to me.

But I wish it would happen soon.

  1. You're so jealous. I am so cool. I am on Ravelry! SUCKAH!

    You, of course, will call out and spend all day logging your stash, current projects, planned projects, etc. You won't have a choice really. it sucks you in.
