    It’s not a crazy idea! Love it! I might start a Rav group and I never thought I would in a million years but this giveaway I am having would be a lot easier if I had one place people could sign up it would be a lot easier, yo lol. *head desk head desk head desk*

    Love the idea of gratitude knitting! I make a lot of things for charity and try to have good thoughts and intentions while making hats, shawls and scarves. I would absolutely participate in a Gratitude-knit- a-long.

    You’re super funny keep up the great work.
