Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
There is no better day to think about diversity in the knitting and crochet community than today. After all, Martin Luther King inspired many of us to be better and expect more. So, how is our community doing? There are many answers to that question. There has been a lot of conversation of late about racism in the community. And I am sure it is there - both blatant and unaware. But I would like to take a moment to say that we have made some progress! I have seen a big change in the past few years with magazines and yarn companies including people of color in their model line up. One of my goals today is to highlight designers who are POC. I have added pictures here and in our email I will include links to the patterns.
