Queueing in Ravelry

People use Ravelry for many different reasons and in many different ways.  One great feature of Ravelry is the Queue.  As you browse patterns and other people's projects in Ravelry you have the option of adding it to your Ravelry queue and adding a tag to make it easy to find later. 

That being said, not everyone uses the queue feature the same way.  Some only add things to their queue that they are absolutely sure they'll be knitting in the near future.  Others add patterns to their queue so that when they are browsing for a project to work on they can go through the queue and look at projects they already know they're intrigued by. 

Becky, Karen and Helen are the heaviest users of Ravelry among the Gurls of Fresh Purls.  But they obviously use it very differently.  Especially the queue. 

Helen's last queued pattern was the Dianna wrap back on April 17, 2010.  It was her 5th queued pattern. 

Karen's last queued pattern was the Rhinemaiden wrap on April 19, 2011.  It was her 10th queued pattern. 

Becky's last queued pattern was the Zen Garden pullover on May 24, 2011 (yesterday – this post is being written on May 25).  The Zen Garden was her 469th queued pattern! 

How do you use your queue in Ravelry?  How many projects do you have queued?  Inquiring minds want to know!
