Because silence can be misconstrued let it be known I am standing with Ravelry. I’m a person first. A mom. An immigrant. A child who grew up holding America high up in her dreams. I value free speech but I do not have to quietly tolerate hate speech or support of it in my community. (I am a yarn shop owner way after all that). Whether or not you support this position and the action @hi.ravelry has taken I would be very grateful if your comments would be kept thoughtful. If you need to unfollow me that is okay. If you need to not shop with me, that’s fine too. No need to announce it. I will delete any bashing comments or just close them altogether. ✌️ #diverseknitty#representationmatters#humanityfirst#safespace#nohatehere#istandwithravelry
