I know it's still in beta but I'm sure there's a few mamas on it already. It's highly highly addictive. It's a good thing my stash is in the bedroom and I get on the computer when the babe is sleeping or I'd have my whole stash up there.

You can see my stuff at http://www.ravelry.com/projects/OhMel

Anyone else?

yeah, I am not cool enough to get invited yet either, but I've been in waiting-list mode for a little while now.

Just your typical non-theistic, liberal, blended family.

Thank you, Mothering, for the past twelve years of support and community. I look forward to many more.

There's a message up that a bunch of invites went out today (they're selected by computer.) As you get your invite please add your username. I'll edit my first post to add everyone in.

They may be selected by computer, but I notice that posh yarn Dee is on there. I think the easiest way of getting selected is by selling beautiful handpainted cashmere
(but yes, I joined the waiting list...)

Initially the creators' friends were on it, and they had invites to send to their friends - so it was probably a fairly exclusive group. Now it's all by computer and there are no invites given to new members It's fairly standard protocol for a beta, and I'm actually surprised theya re inviting so many people.

I'm waiting for an invite. I jsut read a blog this morning that said the invites are being doled out by order of sign up's. They have to do it in smaller increments to make sure they don't overload the system.

Give more**Expect Less
There is no such thing as bad weather. Only bad clothing.

I'm Mia over there, any chance I get to use my real name I jump on it! I got my invite last week I think. I think it's going to be really successful, I like all the features, especially how they're trying to make it both crocheter and knitter friendly. I haven't had time to play around over there yet, but I did add some of my patterns that I've done.

So far, advertising. There's discussion in the forums about free vs pro similar to Flickr... everyone gets basic services and then for 'extras' you pay. I don't think they've decided really though.

I'm probably way down on the list for possible invites, but I'm really excited about the possibility!

Have you checked out the Sneak Peek screen shot tour? I think it's great! I really need to spend more time getting all my things up on there, but that'd mean spending a lot less time here!

I hate that commercial by Mervyns that shows a woman tapping on the glass with face pressed to it saying, "Open, open, open..."

BUT,

That would be me right now...face pressed to my computer monitor~!

That site looks amazing!
