I have been asked what is ravelry? WELL for those of you who do not know, ravelry is a knit and crochet community.
Now this is directly from ravelry and is their words from their site so it is in quotes "Ravelry is a place for knitters, crocheters, designers, spinners, and dyers to keep track of their yarn, tools and pattern information, and look to others for ideas and inspiration.
The content here is all user- driven; we as a community make the site what it is. The Yarn Harlot wrote recently about Representing, showing the world the power of our community, and I believe that on this site we can really show the strength of our numbers and the depth of our creativity.
So what can you personally do on Ravelry? You can talk about your own projects, integrate that information into your personal website and contribute to someone else's project a world away.
If you are not a blogger, we give you a great way to share and show off your projects, participate in -alongs, and socialize with other crafters. If you are a blogger than Ravelry is the perfect complement to your online journal; it provides structure and organization. All of your information is easy to enter and easy to find. You will not need to update your own FO album again- it is all here on Ravelry!"

It looks like it might be a lot of fun to join. A couple of the gals in my knitting get together group already belong. Others in the group are hoping to get their invites soon. Since my last post I have moved up 201 spots on the list with now ONLY 8251 people ahead of me instead of 8452 and a lot more behind me. At the rate of about 200 invites being sent out daily it is going to be at least 41 or 42 days until I get my invite to ravelry. In my last post there were 4037 behind me waiting for invites and now there are 4577 waiting for invites. Boy is word getting around about this new community.

I still have not received my Knit Picks order but any day now is when I expect it to arrive (you don't see those crossed fingers on the keyboard do you)? Here is a photo of my finished ITE4 tote which is waiting to be filled with some of those Knit Picks items.

The outside of the bag.

The inside of the bag.

As you can see there is a lot of room for me to put goodies. I want to fill it up to the top but still be able close the three snaps. I chose snaps instead of a zipper as I thought the snaps looked nicer. There is also a snap on the pocket. The bag is a sage green and navy blue. It is not grey and black as it photographed.

AAHHHHH My ebay sales are over and two of the three auctions received bids and sold. One item is going to the states, one item is going to Australia and one item (the tote bag) is staying with me. Maybe I priced the tote bag too high or maybe no one was interested at this time. I have some more items I will try to list on ebay Saturday afternoon or evening.

Tired eyes say enough I need sleep.

Your bag is even nicer "in person". You did an excellent job. This is one of the nicest bags I've seen. Wish I was the recipient.
Yes, the pom-poms are good!!!!!!!
