Thanks to Carrie, I can now get updated on Ravelry’s progress, and not just wonder about it. She left a link in the comments, for a site which has a detailed message about Ravelry’s status to date. The last paragraph cleared things up for me quite a bit.

Anyway, it seems that some people have been upset, and downright nasty about waiting for Ravelry to open to everyone. I don’t want to leave the impression that I’m upset about it. I have many other things to worry about, without adding that to the list. No, far from it. I just want to join the fun, and I’m looking forward to it. (By the way, my knitting mojo is coming back. Yeah!)

Speaking of fun and distractions, I saw this on Keppy’s blog, and I thought I’d give it a shot.
