I’m so happy to find this place. I was never very active in the groups at the other place. I did read a great deal.I knew that place always had a bias, but the announcement of June 23rd was a punch in the gut. I really didn’t expect it. It did wake me up to read more and see what is happening in the world. I’m working on getting my patterns in some organized fashion downloaded. What’s really sad is how some of my favorite yarn stores announced they were standing with the other place. And other stores made a more sensible announcement.
My grandmother taught me to crochet many years ago. I began to teach myself to knit about 6 years ago. I’m not a fast knitter, but I love the process. Knitting is relaxing and I really enjoy kitting on long car trips.
I’m looking forward to meeting everyone here. It’s exciting to be part of Open Ravel.
