I've finally started a Ravelry group! I've wanted to for ages but after several negative knitting experiences over the past year I just shied away from it. I'm trying to chalk them up to experience, as they say, but jeez they really made me realize how awful seemingly "good" people can be. Luckily, I have solid friends who are supportive. Anyway, last night when I woke at 2am and couldn't fall back asleep, I created a couple of banners, one for my group and one for an advertisement for Loop that I've studiosly been "not doing."
I finally decided to create the Ravelry group because I was so surprised and gratified at Stitches and Rhinebeck when I discovered that I have fans! I couldn't believe that people were showing me their projects (that I designed!) I had my picture taken, complete with 2 big zits which I had inadequeately disguised and met all sorts of people who recognized Loop and Dot which I wore, and they talked to me about my designs. What a buzz! So, please come join the Casapinka group. No trolls, no jerky buttheads, just color, fun projects, yarn discussions, KAL's and giveaways.
