Hello all! I'm so excited to be a part of this community! I saw the hubbub over at Livejournal, much to my dismay. I asked some time ago about a webring for Knitters of Color and got the same flack. Oh well, here we are anyway!
Some background - I am a 30 yo mom of two daughters(7 yo and a 7 month old). I learned to knit just about two years ago, have crocheted forever and do lots of other crafts. I was heavily into beading at one point. Since learning to knit, I've worked my way up to a strong intermediate (I think!).
I've always been the odd one out in any circle of friends - and I know of few other crafters of color in general, much less knitters, here in Minneapolis/St. Paul. I definately stand out at the craft fairs and Craft n Chat nights, even if I am very welcomed. I could go much deeper into why this means so much to me, but I'll leave it there for today.
Happy crafting everyone!
