Technical query

I have posted a support request (as follows), before anyone suggests that I do that. I am just hoping that someone that reads this might know how to do it:

How can I create posts on my LiveJournal that are sourced from one of my other sites / RSS feeds (in this case http://www.ravelry.com/projects/natalieford.rss?status=finished )? The source is my content as well as the destination LJ being mine (permanent).

I have a feeling that one or two of you may already use such a post-creation automation and I know there are a number of ways of posting Twitter streams to LJ and so I hope that LJ provides a method for this. That said, I won't be holding my breath.

I have been finishing so many knitted items recently that I am running out of yarn but it also means that I am not posting about them on LJ but the above feed is an RSS feed of my FOs on Ravelry and so I wondered if there was some way to get the RSS feed to create entries on my LJ. I thought of something like feedburner and the LJ email posting method but am unsure how I could confirm my email LJ posting email address if feedburner was to ask for a confirmation reply/click.

Then again, I guess those of you that are interested in my FOs could just add the LJ feed that I have just created (natalief_ravfos) but it would be nice to get all of my 'content' into my permanent account (this one).

I could probably create such a system if I had a few days spare - and lots of people wanted it.

I might take a Drupal CMS system, get it to import an RSS feed, and then set something up to repost the items in that feed to LiveJournal.

However it is best if the original site (the one creating the RSS) just cross posts everything to LJ directly. Presumably that isn't an option.

Thanks for the offer (well, kinda), but it does appear that Ravelry do not provide a "blog all my finished projects to this blog for me" feature which is a pity.
