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 ^^
