just how amazing people who have never seen each other in the flesh, have never heard each other’s voices and maybe having nothing in common except a shared love of fiber. (I know it happens with other people who share other things, but I have to stick to what I know.) I’m talking about a post in May, 2010 on Ravelry that started with “I have a pregnancy test in my purse” and ended with the birth of a beautiful baby girl, Paloma, last week. As the topic picked up steam, more and more Ravelers started following, reading and posting, becoming a huge cheerleading section, obsessively checking in as D-day got closer and closer. The outpouring of encouragement, excitement, advice and caring was so phenomenal, so affirmative, I get a lump in my throat just thinking about it. Thanks Dori for sharing such a personal part of your life with us, thanks fellow Ravelers for again proving how caring we fiber folks are and thanks Rav for being giving us a place to share and care, you’re the best.
And here’s my photo for today – my beautiful granddaughter, Susannah.
