Ravelry, the fiber website I haunt, has a massive number of participants, and I just found out how to do a little keyboard dance to find out my own number, as in when I joined.

So I have a new ID:  Raveler #138470

Just sayin'.  This just came down a few days ago, and already there's a hierarchy developing, very good humored, about newbies and old timers!  well over a million now, and I'm more or less a middle timer.

Other newsflashes:  here's what went down yesterday.

A poignant note here:  the Artist in Residence tapestry, which the link shows at the final moments of its completion, was started three months ago.  In fact, just after I warped it up, we got the news of Karen's diagnosis, and I thought, well, I'd better be working than worrying, so I embarked on it anyway.  Saturday was her funeral.  Sunday I put the final stitches into the work.  So it seems to have bracketed the last part of her life.  She saw it in progress, came to the opening at which it was one of the exhibits.  I can dedicate this to her, aka this is all your doing, Karen! shaking fist heavenward. She would fall down laughing at that, actually.


  1. Interesting! Didn't know there was such a thing as a *number* on Ravelry. I'm sure your friend is indeed laughing in heaven.

  2. Liz, I'm so sorry for the loss of your friend, K. It's good to think of our loved ones laughing along with us!

    Love that Ravelry number thing - amazingly, I'm #13,319. How in the world did I come to be an "early adopter?" I'm NEVER early!!
