Re-Introducing myself

I've been away for awhile and there's so many new faces that I thought it was called for.

I'm Ravven, I'm 29 years old (for the 17th year in a row!) Mother of 4, all grown and moved out. Grandmother of 2 and certified nutcase.
When I came to MWK I was doing a search for some kind of technique and this site came up in the search. As I snooped around I was just amazed at the talent I saw here. Asplund's colourwork, Andy's gorgeous hats, MMario's lace, only to name a few. So I tentatively made my first post and was accepted. I went on to ask questions and soon found myself being encouraged to try knitting socks. SOCKS! those things the woman who taught me how to knit told me it would be 5 or more years of knitting before I could ever do. My first pair of socks came out beautifully and I'm even working on knitting 6 pairs at once on 2 circular needles (I did mention I'm a nutcase didn't I?). I went on to attempt lace and I don't think I'm half bad at it. Although MMario's shawls still intimidate me.

You may see me refer to the men here as "My Boys" it's always said with total affection. I love My Boys and I look forward to adding more to this group of people who live in my computer.

You might notice my avatar never changes. I promised Superi a long time ago I'd never change it and I never will ^^

I've missed you!

MMario - I'm not divorced from reality - we're having a trial separation

haha! I think I've become a bit more snarky and a lot more crazy in the past years. The advantage of getting old. I can be a crazy old lady and people don't think the lesser of me.

...just a few years ...instead of crazy old can be eccentric!

I still want my druggy, loud neighbors to fear me though.

I don't doubt your talent in that area at all....

Welcome back. It's always nice to know that another eccentric person is among us. I am 60 years young and I think I have pretty much been an eccentric since my 20s. I just look at life differently than most. I'm dyslexic as well, so the two combined makes for an interesting brain wave, I'm sure. Ha!

Good to see you back. Looking forward to reading your posts/comments.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Welcome Back,
I must have joined during your hiatus. Hello from Mississippi. I hope MWK is as friendly and supportive for you as it has been for me.

Happy Knitting,

Hi Stephen!

It has been, even while I was just lurking. Now if I could just find more knitting time. I think it's possible it's lost in the couch cushions, I'll find it if I have to tear the whole house apart though!
