1,067 and Counting...

That's how many souls are in front of me in line for a Ravelry invitation. I can't believe I didn't sign up for this when I first heard about it. I would have been among the first 5,000 to sign up and I'd be in by now. Grrr. The number has been dropping by about 100 a day for the last few days (oh, I've been checking!), so hopefully my number will come up soon. Here are the numbers from when I checked today:

  • You signed up on June 27, 2007
  • You are #11308 on the list.
  • 1067 people are ahead of you in line.
  • 17313 people are behind you in line.
  • 35% of the list has been invited so far

At least there are more people that were slower than me to sign up than were faster than me. That's got to be good, right? Right?

In the meantime, I've been keeping myself busy. While still in Oregon, having finished the socks for Ed, I immediately cast on for this pair of socks for myself, also in TOFUtsies. I already have a pair of socks in a yarn that is visually similar, but I wanted some TOFUtsies for myself, and I wanted dark, subtle, simple me colors. This is in color 732, which, as far as I can determine, doesn't have a name.

I didn't manage to work on the sweater while in Oregon, but I did lug it up there and back, along with three balls of yarn. It's a miracle it didn't get mangled somehow. Since returning I've done three repeats of the 32-row pattern, and I think I've got two more before I start decreasing for the neck. I think it's looking pretty good, but it's getting big enough to cause menopausal symptoms as I work with it draped across my lap. That's the irony of me knitting in Texas. If I wait until it's cool enough to be comfortable knitting great wads of wool, I can't get the thing done before it warms up again!

I just checked my Ravelry position again. I'm no closer to the front of the line, but there are already 5 more people behind me. Heh heh heh.

Knitting-related schadenfreude is an ugly thing.
