What is this thing I hear?

Okay, so from my daily blog crawling, I've heard mention of this Ravelry thing which up until today, I just thought was a big members only site with lots of patterns. As it turns out, it is that, a part of it anyways, but it is so much more. It is still in its beta testing phase because honestly, frecklegirl and her husband are righteously ambitious about this whole Knitting/Crochet online community. I mean this thing is revolutionary! Who in the world would've thought to create something on this scale for a bunch of crafters? But you know what? These crafty "weirdos" are coming out in full force, we will not be silenced and I think this Ravelry is finally carving out a territory online for all the yarn-hos to hang out, a place to congregate. Ravelry is a unified nation for the weaving arts and the scenery here looks good!
I signed up to be on the waiting list just now. I checked about 15 minutes ago. I had 4 people behind me then.
I checked again just now, there are now 10 people signed up after me. While the rate of new users may not be as high as many popular social networks, for a niche community, I'd say as long as the numbers are jumping up in triple digits a day, that's pretty darn good.

Anyways, here're my 2 finished projects since the last finished projects post: (Now what do I knit?)
