I travel a ton. And I always travel with my knitting. I am constantly amazed at the conversations that strike up about knitting. Sometimes the conversations are in two languages and a lot of hand signals as two women from two different cultures with two languages bond over our love of knitting.
I just love that fiber shrinks our world and brings peoples together. And while the fiber world is not exclusively the domain of women, it is heavily influenced by us. So when I read about International Women's Day I immediately thought of our shop.
At the table, when you com in to sit, knit/crochet/weave/spin, you will sit with women from different countries, different parts of the US, different beliefs and backgrounds. But what ties us and brings us together is the love of our craft. And through that love we realize that even when we do not always agree with each other, we have so much in common.
We look forward to seeing you next week to celebrate International Women's Day.
Molly and all of us at HOKC!
