Passing the Century Mark

We now have 109 active members! Welcome to the new folks. I appreciate your decision to join the ring.

Just as a reminder, here is the periodic re-posting of the "rules":

1. You must have a blog about your textile projects, ideas, and adventures. Things like spinning, weaving, knitting, crochet, lace-making, braiding and kumihimo, etc. It doesn't have to be *only* about fiber things, but should include fiber stuff at least once per month.

2. The blog needs to be regularly updated. Any blogs not updated in over one month will be moved to the queue. If you have not updated in over three months your site will be removed from the ring. I'm happy to bend this rule if you have extenuating circumstances, such as your house was destroyed in a storm or you just had twins, so fiber blog time is limited.

3. You need to include the ring code on the blog page, so that visitors can surf to other bloggers' sites more easily. (Isn't that the point?!) At a minimum, the ring code must include a link to the ring's home and the Next and Previous links. Anyone who has not added the code to their site within two weeks of application will be removed from the ring. If you don't have the current ring code, e-mail me and I can send it to you.

Dismantling the Ring Surf Ring

I have started to delete sites from the Ring Surf blog ring. I am starting with sites which have already moved to our new home at If you already are listed at alt-webring, do *not* be alarmed when you get the delete notification from Ring Surf. In the next week, I will be sending out a second e-mail to all Ring Surf members reminding them that we've moved.

Hope you are all having a peaceful and Fibery week!
