Periodically, I check the waiting list checker at Ravelry:
You signed up on June 30, 2007
You are #11685 on the list.
703 people are ahead of you in line.
18583 people are behind you in line.
36% of the list has been invited so far
How come some things (like the time until birthdays when you were a child) drag and others rush by?
Like my holidays....back to work today :(
