We all share a common thread.
using the same yarn
yet interpreting it all differently

We are all women living miles apart
using a skill that was created hundreds of years ago

is not just a necessity any longer.
A need, maybe..
we do know it's rewarding and beautiful.
and a connection to the past that lives on today.
